Tuesday practice lines, pairings - LA Kings Insider

A good morning to you from El Segundo, Insiders. The Kings took the ice shortly before 10:00 a.m. and aligned as such:

Gray: Iafallo-Kopitar-Kovalchuk
Blue: Pearson-Carter-Toffoli
White: Wagner-Kempe-Lewis
Yellow: Clifford-Amadio-Thompson-Anderson-Dolan

Defensive pairs moved around, but we’re expecting groups of Forbort-Doughty, Muzzin-Martinez and Phaneuf-Fantenberg on opening night with Paul LaDue likely to be the extra.

The Brown absence stings. This is a much different alignment from the one favored by the team prior to his injury.

Lots more to come after today’s practice.
