Hockey is back, Insiders!
The Kings and Coyotes will square off in a pair of preseason matchups, split-squad style. Jon has made the trip to Arizona and I’ll have the coverage tonight in Los Angeles.
Projected Lineup In Los Angeles
Clifford – Carter – Lewis
Kovalchuk – Kempe – Toffoli
Anderson-Dolan – Prokhorkin – Luff
Kaliyev – Kupari – Rempal
Ryan – Spence
Brickley – Clague
Bjornfot – Durzi
Quick / Petersen
*Quick was the first goaltender off but Petersen was off quickly thereafter. As per Jon below, expecting goalies to split time.
Tomorrow’s split-squad groups will be a mix of the current groups, McLellan said. He’ll stay at Staples with Sturm, while Yawney and Stothers will travel to Glendale. Goalies will split time in net.
