LOS ANGELES -- Darryl Sutter said his Los Angeles Kings were losing the depth battle in this Western Conference First Round series against the San Jose Sharks, and potential new forward lines Tuesday in Game 3 at Staples Center (10 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS, CSN-CA, PRIME) might be his attempt to rectify that problem.
Mike Richards was centering the fourth line during warm-ups for the Kings, with Jeff Carter sliding into the middle on the second unit. Trevor Lewis, who has two of the Kings' five goals in the series, moved up next to Carter. Rookie Tanner Pearson skated on the third line, and Kyle Clifford was not on the ice.
Here's what the Kings lineup looked like during warm-ups:
Marian Gaborik - Anze Kopitar - Justin Williams
Tyler Toffoli - Jeff Carter - Trevor Lewis
Dustin Brown - Jarret Stoll - Tanner Pearson
Jordan Nolan - Mike Richards - Dwight King
Jake Muzzin - Drew Doughty
Robyn Regehr - Slava Voynov
Willie Mitchell - Alec Martinez
