Kings-Ducks Preview: Revolutions

Since we last met the Anaheim Ducks...

IN: Andrew Cogliano, Mark Bell, Mathieu Carle, Jeff Deslauriers, Andrew Gordon, Jean-Francois Jacques, Bryan Rodney, Devante Smith-Pelly, Matt Smaby, Niklas Hagman (claimed off waivers from the Flames).

OUT: Andy Sutton, Kyle Chipchura, Josh Green, Andreas Lilja, Todd Marchant

INJURED: Jason Blake (arm), Nick Bonino (knee), George Parros (eye)

Probable lines:

Ryan-Getzlaf-Perry
Cogliano-Koivu-Selanne
Beleskey-Macenauer-Gordon
Jacques-McMillan-Smith-Pelly

Lydman-Sbisa
Beauchemin-Fowler
Brookbank-Foster

In Net: Jonas Hiller, pulled in his last game vs. Minnesota, will face off against Jonathan Quick.

Kings lineup: Parse, Penner, and Martinez have all been placed on inured reserve, so the new Russian hotness is here to fill the breach. Loktionov will play left wing on the second line, and Voynov will be paired with his old buddy Mitchell. Which means...

The Johnson Doughty pairing is back!

Jack Johnson has been basking in the glow of fan approval lately, but his possession numbers still need work; he and Scuderi are the only d-pairing with negative Corsi. Doughty, on the other hand, is among the team leaders. This new pairing may staunch the bleeding where JJ's concerned, but it also could limit Doughty's effectiveness at even strength. Fingers crossed that this becomes a turning point for Jack instead.
