The Los Angeles Kings will be traveling to Dallas after today's practice to begin their three-game road trip. During their trip, they will take on the Dallas Stars (7-2-0), Phoenix Coyotes (3-3-2) and Colorado Avalanche (6-2-0).
The Kings are coming off a 3-0 shutout loss to New Jersey. Although many fans understand the decision to start Jonathan Bernier in goal last night, there are still others who feel coach Terry Murray needs to do a better job of understanding when to give Jonathan Quick a rest.
It is expected that Murray will start Quick in goal against Dallas on Thursday and Phoenix on Saturday, but he'll then have to make a decision on whether or not to start him against Colorado on Sunday.
Drew Doughty did practice in a black jersey this morning according to Kings' broadcaster Jim Fox. However, his availability for the upcoming trip is unknown.
Los Angeles, which is second in the Pacific Division with a 5-2-1 record, trails Dallas by three points.
