Trying to bounce back after their shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday, the Los Angeles Kings take on the Calgary Flames Monday night.
Puck drops at 7:30 PM.
The Kings dominated possession on Saturday but lost the special teams battle and struggled to solve Thatcher Demko in net.
The Kings will make a few changes to the lineup on Monday.
Zack MacEwen will draw in for Arthur Kaliyev on the fourth line and Sean Walker will come back in to replace Jordan Spence.
The fourth line with Kaliyev has looked good recently, but coming up against a big, physical Flames team. Todd McLellan likely wants to match some of that size and physicality with MacEwen.
Pheonix Copley will start between the pipes.

Quinton Byfield-Anze Kopitar-Adrian Kempe
