#LAKings Projected Lineups – LA Kings vs. Columbus Blue Jackets; the Semi-Revenge Game (Mayors


Riding high at 6-0-1 in their past seven games, the Kings head into Thursday’s game in a very winnable situation. Columbus arrives in town having gone 3-4-3 of late and with 49 points on the season, they sit dead last in the NHL standings.
With Kevin Fiala and Sean Durzi both still sidelined (listed as day-to-day), coach Todd McLellan’s lineup is expected to remain fairly static from the team’s last game. Perhaps there could be a change in the fourth line, giving Zack MacEwen and/or Jaret Anderson-Dolan an opportunity to slide back into the lineup.
Considering Jordan Spence remains up with the Kings, we’re again assuming he has at least a 50% shot at replacing Sean Walker on the third defensive pair. Former Columbus blueliner Vladimir Gavrikov will once again anchor the second pair, and he’s coming off a two assist performance earlier this week.
In goal — and in somewhat of a surprising declaration — McLellan has said he won’t alter his 50/50 goalie rotation yet. Thus, Pheonix Copley will start in net over former Blue Jacket goalie Joonas Korpisalo.

On This Day in Kings History
On March 16, 2012, Jim Fox predicted that the @LAKings were closer to winning the Stanley Cup over the Anaheim Ducks in an intermission segment with Brian Hayward. The #LAKings went on to defeat the Ducks, 4-2, at Honda Center.#GoKingsGo
