Kings' Brown scratched due to illness

LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown was scratched from the lineup Monday night because of illness, according to the team.

Brown did not attend the morning skate and coach Darryl Sutter was not available to comment before L.A. played the Dallas Stars at Staples Center.

Brown has seven goals and six assists in 37 games this season. Trevor Lewis took his place on the second line with Jarret Stoll and Justin Williams. Daniel Carcillo was inserted into the lineup on the third line with Mike Richards and Tyler Toffoli.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
