A lot of that has to do with the defensive personnel in the line up, which is directly related to the injuries to Forbort and Muzzin and then obviously Friday night Doughty being out. The Kings' attack begins from he defensive zone, I'm sure you can connect the dots as to how this affects the forwards. Steven's actually hits it in the link below, also some information about line up changes: "We always talk about having fuel tanks full in that (offensive) zone," Stevens said. "If we manage the puck well and execute cleanly, we’re going to get into that situation with lots of gas in the tank, as opposed to spending too much time in your zone and then you’re looking just to get a puck in and change because your tank is empty." April 15 notes; Muzzin, Perron in; That 70's Line; prospect news; more - LA Kings Insider I'm glad Stevens is not like Sutter in the sense that he's willing to change things up, and I must pat myself on the back about that third line because I called it earlier in the thread. =)~~ Lots of speed on that third line, the Kings will finally have a full line with some speed that can back the Knights off like they have been doing to LA. Hopefully they generate some pressure, sustained attack. I don't expect them to score but that would be great. At the very least it creates some issues for Vegas. This is as close to the full lineup that the Kings will have in this series it looks like. Perron is in too for the Knights, always an adventure with him as we are well aware of from the Blues' days against LA. I'm sure he will be back to his dirty little tricks so I hope the Kings are prepared to handle that and send a strong message tonight.
