Projected Lineups

Here’s how the Kings aligned in Friday’s overtime win in Vegas:

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.

Here’s how the Coyotes lined up against the Lightning way back on February 11:

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.

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