Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, is usually a nice and calm place for the Los Angeles Kings, but not when their team is in the Stanley Cup Final. During the regular season and playoffs, you can usually have a clear view of the practice and get an interview with the players who are around, but on June 6 there was local and national reporters invading the humble home of the Kings.
The boys may have had this experience before, but there’s many that haven’t, but they are taking in how great it is to be where they are.
During practice the line rushes were as follows:
It seems as though the lines are going back to the way they were before Game 1. During Game 1 head coach Darryl Sutter had shifted the lines around a bit, but most likely Saturday, the line-up will go back to the way it’s been prior to Game 1.
Defenseman Robyn Regehr, who hasn’t played since the Anaheim series due to a knee injury while attempting a hit on Devante Smith-Pelly in Game 1, has been practicing and joined the Kings on ice when they became the Western Conference Champions. On Friday, Sutter said “He’ll probably play tomorrow,” in regards to Regehr and Game 2. If Regehr returns to the lineup most likely it will be Greene who is out.
Game 2 is on Saturday, at STAPLES Center, with a early start time of 4:00 p.m. Most likely Kings will not hold a practice.Tags: Hockey, Los Angeles, Los Angeles Kings, NHL
