Bernier to start one split-squad game, Quick the other
Jonathan Bernier is scheduled to start in goal again Thursday at Phoenix in the Kings' split-squad game against the Coyotes' split-squad team. He was the winner Wednesday in the Kings' 4-2 decision over Colorado in their exhibition opener.
Jonathan Quick is scheduled to start the other split-squad game for the Kings on Thursday night at Staples Center, against the Coyotes' other split-squad team.
Confusing, but there it is. That's exhibition hockey.
Also expected to play at Phoenix are the lines of Alexei Ponikarovsky-Brad Richardson-Bud Holloway; Jordan Nolan-Jarret Stoll-Justin Williams; John Zeiler-Corey Elkins-Kevin Westgarth and Ray Kaunisto-Rob Czarnik-David Meckler.
The defense pairs are scheduled to be Davis Drewiske-Peter Harrold; Andrew Campbell-Thomas Hickey and Alec Martinez-David Kolomatis. Jeff Zatkoff will be Bernier's backup.
It will all be simpler when the season starts...
