Projected Lineups

Here’s how the Kings aligned in Thursday’s shootout win over the Flames:

It’s important to note that Jaret Anderson-Dolan was recalled on an emergency basis and then loaned back to Ontario prior to the game against the Flames. On Friday, he was recalled in the same fashion.

It’s obvious that one or a couple of players are banged up right now. Let’s see if Anderson-Dolan draws in on Saturday or if it’s purely precautionary.

Here’s how the Jets lined up in Thursday’s 7-3 loss to the Maple Leafs:

The Kings will miss Kyle Connor and Nate Schmidt on Saturday. Both entered COVID protocol earlier this week, with Saturday’s game being the last of their three-game minimum time required to sit out.

The Kings will look to avoid the season series sweep while extending their second-place lead over the Oilers, who topped the Blues in overtime last night.

Puck drop is set for 4:00 pm PT.
