Quick back at work
El SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Jonathan Quick is expected to return in goal for the Kings on Tuesday after he was given a rare night off Saturday. Quick will have four days of rest between starts.

How much will it pay off?

"We'll find out in the next few hours," said Kings coach Darryl Sutter.

Fatigue was a concern with Quick under former coach Terry Murray, who started Quick 72 games in 2009-10. Quick will make his 61st start tonight.

Sutter, who rode Miikka Kiprusoff in Calgary, said the rest period was planned.

"It was the best time to do it," he said.

Here is what the rest of the Kings' lineup could look like:

Dustin Brown - Anze Kopitar - Justin Williams
Dwight King - Mike Richards - Jeff Carter
Dustin Penner - Jarret Stoll - Trevor Lewis
Kyle Clifford - Colin Fraser - Jordan Nolan

Rob Scuderi - Drew Doughty
Willie Mitchell - Slava Voynov
Matt Greene - Alec Martinez

Jonathan Quick will be in goal, with Jonathan Bernier the backup.
Quote of the Day

I think Loui Eriksson is a player that can be even better than he was last year. I think we started seeing that at the end of the year, and he could be a replacement for Jarome as a possibility.
