Here are the projected lineups for the Edmonton Oilers and the Los Angeles Kings for their matchup Thursday night at Staples Center. The Oilers have won five straight to surge to the top of the Northwest Division, while the Kings could be level with the Stars on points at the top of the Pacific Division with a victory.
I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
