Lineups

Los Angeles Kings

Wagner - Carter - Toffoli
Kovalchuk - Kempe - Luff
Clifford - Thompson - Amadio

Forbort - Doughty
Muzzin - Martinez
Phaneuf - Fantenberg

Petersen
(Budaj)

The only thing we know for sure is that Petersen will start; Willie Desjardins all but confirmed that last night. Between college hockey and the AHL, Petersen is used to starting back-to-back games, and he’s already done it for the Kings. Amadio will slot in now that Hagelin is injured. The lines the Kings started the last game with aren’t necessarily the lines they’ll end with, so today’s configurations really are anyone’s guess.
