According to Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider, Justin Williams declared himself good to go for the start of the Sharks-Kings quarterfinal series.

The Los Angeles Kings winger said that he will "probably" make a decision on his status today as he continues to work back from a dislocated shoulder.

Williams practiced Tuesday and was seen taking contact in the corners and participating in drills, although he wore a gray jersey designated for injured players and was not part of the line rushes.

He said he would later talk to coach Terry Murray and stopped short of saying he was ready to play Game 1 of the Kings' opening round series against San Jose on Thursday.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
