Tonight’s Lines: Scandella returns

New, comments

There aren’t many changes from Wednesday evening’s game

NHL: Los Angeles Kings at St. Louis Blues Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Marco Scandella missed Wednesday evening’s 2-1 shootout loss to the Sharks, which gave Niko Mikkola a chance to get his season debut. Mikkola played well, making two blocks in his 14:25 of ice time. He also held his own on the PK with nearly five minutes of short handed time on ice.

Scandella’s upper body injury was a quick fix, though, so he’s back in tonight and Mikkola sits. Kyle Clifford also returns against his old team, the Los Angeles Kings, while Sammy Blais returns to the pressbox. Here are tonight’s expected lines:

Forwards

Sanford - O’Reilly - Perron

Schwartz - Schenn - Kyrou

Hoffman - Thomas - Bozak

Clifford - Barbashev - Sundqvist

Krug - Parayko

Scandella - Faulk

Dunn - Gunnarsson
