Here’s how the Kings aligned in Sunday’s win over the Bruins:
Today's @LAKings Line Rushes –— Zach Dooley (@DooleyLAK) March 6, 2022
Anderson-Dolan – Kopitar – Kempe
Moore – Danault – Arvidsson
Iafallo – Byfield – Brown
Athanasiou – Lizotte – Kaliyev
Anderson – Doughty
Maatta – Roy
Bjornfot – Durzi
With Cal Petersen pitching the shutout on Sunday, it’s probably a safe bet that Jonathan Quick goes in the second leg of the back-to-back. He’ll look to improve upon the five goals he allowed last Monday to these Bruins before he was pulled.
Head coach Todd McLellan will return behind the bench on Monday, but the Kings are likely to be without Viktor Arvidsson, who went awkwardly into the end boards on Sunday. Acting head coach Trent Yawney indicated that the Swedish forward is day-to-day.
Here’s how the Bruins lined up in this morning’s practice:
