LOS ANGELES - Vladimir Tarasenko is back in the lineup and will start the game on the first line with Jordan Kyrou and Ryan O'Reilly on Saturday night against the Los Angeles Kings (8 p.m. CT, FSMW, 101 ESPN).
Tarasenko's return means Zach Sanford, who was previously on that line with O'Reilly and Kyrou, was skating on the third line with Nathan Walker and Sammy Blais in pregame warm-ups.
Mike Hoffman appears to have joined Brayden Schenn and David Perron's line.
Oskar Sundqvist, who did not play in the third period Friday, will not be in the lineup Saturday.
Kyrou - O'Reilly - Tarasenko
Hoffman - Schenn - Perron
Walker - Sanford - Blais
Clifford - Joshua - MacEachern
Krug - Faulk
Dunn - Scandella
Mikkola - Bortuzzo
