Terry Murray said this morning that Erik Ersberg will start in goal Tuesday night against Dallas. It will be Ersberg’s fourth consecutive start.
“It is just an opportunity for Ersberg to come out and play and keep playing well,” Murray told the Kings’ website. “What we are trying to do is to win games. He came up big vs. St. Louis and had a huge second period with some big saves. … It is very important for a young hockey club to get some wins under their belt.”
Also, Jack Johnson skated with Daryl Evans before practice, his first on-ice workout since his shoulder surgery. Johnson is way ahead of schedule and updated estimates have him possibly returning in the middle or late part of next month.
