KINGS (26-21-4) at FLYERS (26-20-6)
1 p.m. ET; NHLN, CSN-PH, FS-W, NHL.TV
Kings team scope
Tyler Toffoli could return to the Los Angeles Kings after being activated Saturday. He has been out since Dec. 20 because of a lower-body injury. At practice Friday he was at right wing on a line with center Jeff Carter and left wing Tanner Pearson. "He'll be a game-time [decision]," coach Darryl Sutter told LAKingsInsider.com on Friday. "I'll talk to him tonight. I wanted him to practice with the line today and see, and then go from there." Toffoli, who led the Kings with 31 goals last season, has eight goals and 20 points in 32 games this season. Forward Jordan Nolan is not with the Kings as they start a four-game road trip. He sustained a lower-body injury during the second period against the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday.
Flyers team scope
Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere and forward Travis Konecny likely will be scratched for the second straight game. Coach Dave Hakstol said he's considering going with the same lineup he used in a 3-1 victory against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday. "It's about winning hockey games," Hakstol told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Friday. "We're in the middle of a [Stanley Cup] Playoff battle here. ... It's just about a roster and a lineup that gives us the best opportunity to win." Gostisbehere was second in the voting for the Calder Trophy last season but is a Flyers-worst minus-19 in 48 games this season. Konecny, a 19-year-old rookie, has seven goals and 22 points in 50 games. "I'm happy with those two kids," general manager Ron Hextall said. "There's learning curves with young players that old players have been through. And they're going through some ups and downs right now. … I don't like it, they don't like it, [Hakstol] doesn't like it. But it's what the coaching staff deemed the right thing right now. I'm fine with it."
