Good morning from El Segundo

Good morning, Insiders. A happy Tuesday to you.

Regular practice notes will follow, but in advance, a few notes related to personnel to pass along:

-Tanner Pearson is back with Adrian Kempe and Tyler Toffoli, and Alex Iafallo with Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown.
-Marian Gaborik is on… an actual, three-person line? He’s color coded with Jussi Jokinen and Jonny Brodzinski.
-Brooks Laich is skating in a black jersey with the defensemen, and there’s no one on Gaborik’s line who has played center consistently in a game for Los Angeles this season, so it’s possible that he could end up skating with the purples on Wednesday. Or another line altogether. Or not play at all.
-All active players were present and accounted for.

Gray: Iafallo-Kopitar-Brown
Blue: Pearson-Kempe-Toffoli
Purple: Gaborik-Jokinen-Brodzinski
Yellow: Andreoff-Shore-Lewis-Dowd

And, a Gabriel Vilardi update:

-More to come, Insiders. Thank you for reading…
