Kings shake up lines for Game 3 vs. Sharks

LOS ANGELES -- Darryl Sutter said his Los Angeles Kings were losing the depth battle in this Western Conference First Round series against the San Jose Sharks, and potential new forward lines Tuesday in Game 3 at Staples Center (10 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS, CSN-CA, PRIME) might be his attempt to rectify that problem.

Mike Richards was centering the fourth line during warm-ups for the Kings, with Jeff Carter sliding into the middle on the second unit. Trevor Lewis, who has two of the Kings' five goals in the series, moved up next to Carter. Rookie Tanner Pearson skated on the third line, and Kyle Clifford was not on the ice.

Here's what the Kings lineup looked like during warm-ups:

Marian Gaborik - Anze Kopitar - Justin Williams

Tyler Toffoli - Jeff Carter - Trevor Lewis

Dustin Brown - Jarret Stoll - Tanner Pearson

Jordan Nolan - Mike Richards - Dwight King

Jake Muzzin - Drew Doughty

Robyn Regehr - Slava Voynov

Willie Mitchell - Alec Martinez

Jonathan Quick

Martin Jones

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
