CJ made one notable line change at practice on Monday, placing Paul Byron on a line with Max Domi and Andrew Shaw, while Jonathan Drouin was paired with Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Joel Armia. We'll likely see if that switch remains intact when the Canadiens hit the ice for Tuesday's morning skate in El Segundo at 1:45 p.m. ET.

I liked JK and Drouin in the Pre-season.   I really think we need to give the kid some talent on his wings. Byron is great but he's a garage goal specialist, he's never jived well next to JK. 

Lines at practice were:

Tatar - Danault - Gallagher
Byron - Domi - Shaw
Drouin - Kotkaniemi - Armia
Lehkonen - Thompson - Weise

Extras: Hudon - Deslauriers - Peca - Weal

Mete - Weber
Benn - Petry
Kulak - Folin

Extra: Reilly

Not sure why Benn is playing in the top 4 still. He's been brutal every time we've had him higher than 3rd pair.  I know they want Folin in (and he looked good) but surely Kulak or Reilly next to Petry makes more sense?

I won't be watching this one. I'm on Newfoundland time... which is 4 1/2 hours ahead of the Pacific timezone. Go Habs!

Claude Julien says Jesperi Kotkaniemi seems fatigued and less efficient of late. Scratching him vs. LA Kings.

Wow. For real?   

I guess if he needs rest then it makes sense but seems so odd to see him sitting for Weal.  I suppose in the end it will be good if he's better rested for the playoffs... but, will we make it there if he doesnt play?

Yes, Weal in for JK... not sure I see signs of fatigue. He's been just as good in the 2nd half and far from being our worst forward. Drouin has been the guy playing lazy-looking hockey. Lehkonen has struggled to finish. Weise has been as negligible asset. There were other guys who probably could have come out first, and if JK is tired, wouldn't the upcoming B2B have made more sense as a game to sit?

Kings are low in the standings, so today is the day you mess with your lineup and still think you can win regardless.

Really need these two points to keep pace tonight. Everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong, with the exception of the Carolina game,,, yet they still got the loser point.

Canes lose to the ruins in OT

Isles win in a SO

Pitts wins in OT

CLB wins in a SO

Annnd we're out of the POs.
