Quick could start again for Kings

Here is the projected Saturday lineup for the Los Angeles Kings, who play host to the Edmonton Oilers at Staples Center:

Dustin BrownAnze KopitarJustin Williams

Kyle Clifford - Mike RichardsJeff Carter

Brad RichardsonJarret StollTrevor Lewis

Dwight KingColin FraserJordan Nolan

Jake MuzzinDrew Doughty

Rob ScuderiSlava Voynov

Robyn RegehrKeaton Ellerby

Jonathan Quick

Jonathan Bernier

Scratched: Alec Martinez, Tyler Toffoli

Injured: Dustin Penner (lower body), Matt Greene (back), Willie Mitchell (knee)

Notes: Quick reportedly left the ice first after practice Friday, which is an indicator he will start. Bernier has won four in a row (stretched out over 19 days) and would seem like an equally, if not better choice to put in goal, but coach Darryl Sutter stresses the need to use both because of the schedule.

Clifford continues to be a versatile wing no matter what line he’s on, and he reprised his role with Richards and Carter on Thursday. If Sutter wants more speed against Edmonton, he could reinsert Toffoli.

Regehr was as good as advertised in his Kings debut with six hits, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in 18:25 minutes of ice time.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
