TAMPA -- The Los Angeles Kings are in the midst of a three-game win streak, but that hasn't stopped coach Darryl Sutter from doing a little line shuffling.
When the Kings take the ice Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Lightning, look for Mike Richards to play between Justin Williams and Dustin Brown, while Jeff Carter will shift to the wing on a line with center Anze Kopitar and Dwight King. Daniel Carcillo was moved down to the fourth line.
Sutter downplayed the change as "insignificant," pointing out that his top four skaters get significant ice time together on power plays.
"They play a lot together as it is," Sutter said. "Their minutes are different than everyone else."
Here is the line the Kings likely will use Tuesday:
Dustin Brown - Mike Richards - Justin Williams
Dwight King - Anze Kopitar - Jeff Carter
Kyle Clifford - Trevor Lewis - Matt Frattin
Daniel Carcillo - Jarret Stoll - Jordan Nolan
Alec Martinez - Matt Greene
Slava Voynov - Willie Mitchell
Robyn Regehr - Drew Doughty
Scratched: Keaton Ellerby, Jake Muzzin, Colin Fraser
