Being on the second leg of a back-to-back, Cal Petersen is probably a safe bet to get the nod in net on Saturday night.

It appears they will be getting Barrett Hayton back in the lineup on Saturday. He has not played since January 6, as Craig Morgan notes.
Barrett Hayton will return to the lineup against the LA Kings on Saturday. Hayton has not played since Jan. 6 vs. Chicago.
Karel Vejmelka will start in goal.

Kings and Coyotes get underway from Gila River Arena at 6 pm PT. Los Angeles will look to avoid being Vejmelka’d again.
