What to Watch

Seems like we just did this two nights ago (we did!) and if it ends like the last one did (a 3-0 whitewash of Anaheim), most of us will have reason to smile.

The projected Kings lineups look something like this:

Grundstrom — Amadio — Wagner
Kovalchuk — A.Kempe — Kupari
Clifford — Lizotte — Lewis
Anderson-Dolan — Prokhorkin — M.Kempe

Hutton — Walker
Martinez — Roy
Ryan — LaDue


As reported by the LA Kings Insider Jon Rosen, after practice Todd McLellan said, “We’re giving everybody an opportunity to play that we feel is competing for certain positions. Now, some will say, ‘well, isn’t Tyler Toffoli competing, and Jeff Carter?’ Yeah, they are. But this is a youthful lineup that’s going to play against a pretty experienced lineup in Anaheim, and it’s by design. We’ll see what type of stress the kids can handle and how they perform, and we expect a good night from our guys.”

In the last game of consecutive night three-games-in-three-nights stretch, news of the Ducks  lineup remains a bit clouded, but there are a couple of signs as to who will be on the Honda Center ice tonight, courtesy of Twitter:
