It may only be the pre-season but tonight is what Kings fans have been waiting for this since their team was eliminated from the playoffs this past spring.

 

The Los Angeles Kings open their pre-season schedule at Staples Center tonight when they play host to the Phoenix Coyotes. Both teams will be playing a split-squad game as the other half of each time will be squaring off in Glendale.

 

Jonathan Quick should get the start in goal tonight with Martin Jones backing him up. Following is the Kings' lineup, thanks to Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider:

 

Richardson-Richards-Brown

Clifford-Stoll-Parse

Nolan-Loktionov-Hunter

Kaunisto-Cliche-Meckler

 

Scuderi-Johnson

Drewiske-Voynov

Muzzin-Hickey

 

Quick

Jones

 

Enjoy the game!
