Here are what the lineups for the Kings and Blues likely will look like tonight when they meet in Los Angeles. It's the Kings' first game at home since a Sept. 25 preseason game against the Ducks.
In addition to the opening-night festivities, the wives and girlfriends of Kings players will sell "Love for Lokomotiv" bracelets near section 103 of Staples Center for $10 each to benefit the families and children of the KHL team members that were killed in a plane crash Sept. 7.
We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
