Those who have been wanting to see Brian Boyle in more than a fourth-line role will get their wish tonight, as the Kings are expected to skate much like they did in the third period Thursday:
In discussing the Boyle/Stoll flip, Terry Murray once again referenced Stoll’s delay of game penalty. He really, really didn’t like that one.
Jonathan Quick will be in goal.
It was an optional skate this morning, so Kopitar, Frolov and Handzus (and Murray) stayed off the ice.
I’ll have quotes on this stuff a bit later, plus an explanation from Oscar Moller about his situation.
