Jonathan Quick is to start in goal for the Kings after Jonathan Bernier won back-to-back starts. Bernier was assigned to Manchester of the American Hockey League after Erik Ersberg (strained back) was cleared to play. Forward Jeff Halpern (upper-body injury) is expected to be out a week after taking a shot to the head from Vancouver’s Tanner Glass on Thursday. For the Ducks, defenseman James Wisniewski will be eligible to return after serving an eight-game suspension for his illegal hit on Chicago’s Brent Seabrook on March 17. Center Ryan Getzlaf (ankle) and goalie Jonas Hiller (back spasms) are still day to day.
