Williams doesn't seem to gel with anyone as well as he does Kopitar. I'd sooner try Brown (who is amazing these playoffs) with Richards and throw King or Penner on Kopi's left wing. Just to see. Might open up some room for a healing Richards and Carter to operate.

He works for the Kings. If DL wanted him to post a first line of Westgarth/Loktionov/Parse he would.

ESPNLA also reported the lines are the same.

I think this is our team going forward, we'll see who is inserted if there is another injury.

This.

3rd year in a row that Richardson is playing well in the playoffs.

How can anyone possibly want Penner on the 1st or 2nd line? Guy looks like he's skating with a parachute on his back. I'm hoping the collective inexperience of Fraser/King/Nolan is the only thing preventing Penner from being the player with the least amount of ice time.

As much as I dogged pancakes during the year he is playing much much better. I'm not saying he is a stud out there but he reminds me of frolov right now. He has been really really strong on the puck and has busted his ass on the back check.

I hate to say it because I have been a huge supporter of Nolan but he would be the guy I would take out of the lineup whenever Clifford's healthy.

I think they can shuffle around the bottom six based on matchups though.

Top six they have found a winning formula, only tweak might be an experiment at second-line LW but the top line should stay together and Richards/Carter combo should as well.
