Nolan in, Clifford out for Kings in Game 5

ANAHEIM -- Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter didn't hint at any line adjustments Monday morning, but it appears he will change them up against the Anaheim Ducks for Game 5 of the Western Conference Second Round series at Honda Center (10 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN, RDS).

Kings captain Dustin Brown skated with center Anze Kopitar and forward Marian Gaborik in warm-ups. It also appears that forward Jordan Nolan will be in the Los Angeles lineup in favor of Kyle Clifford and play on the fourth line with center Mike Richards and forward Dwight King.

The other Kings lines were Tanner Pearson-Jeff Carter-Tyler Toffoli and Trevor Lewis-Jarret Stoll-Justin Williams.

The King-Richards-Nolan line is likely to counter Anaheim's fourth line of Daniel Winnik, Nick Bonino and Kyle Palmieri. Los Angeles is looking to generate offense, particularly from its top players. Carter, Williams and Brown have combined for one goal in Games 1-4, and the Kings are 2-for-12 on the power play in the series.

As expected, the goalies are John Gibson for Anaheim and Jonathan Quick for Los Angeles.

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.
