LOS ANGELES (AP) — Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals between the Kings and Rangers is on tap tonight in Los Angeles. The Kings are on top after capturing the opener in overtime.
Los Angeles is expected to welcome veteran defenseman Robyn Regehrback to the lineup after missing 14 games with a knee injury. Kings coach Darryl Sutter said yesterday that Regehr “probably” will play in Game 2, which means assistant captain Matt Greene could be the odd-man out on defense.
Defenseman John Moore is eligible to return for the Rangers after a two-game suspension for a hit on Montreal’s Dale Weise in the conference finals. Moore’s availability could send fellow blueliner Raphael Diaz to the bench.
