We now know that the Los Angeles Kings will open their second-round series against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday, but what their lineup will look like for that contest remains to be seen.

The Kings were without Kyle Clifford for Game 6 on Friday due to an undisclosed injury and he wasn’t on the ice for the team’s practice on Monday. Kings coach Darryl Sutter wouldn’t provide an update on his status, according to LA Kings’ Insider.

Meanwhile, Matt Greene (undisclosed) was on the ice Monday, but he didn’t want to provide a potential timetable for his return.

“Just cruising along and rehabbing and listening to the doctors. That’s it,” Greene said.

Greene was limited to just five games in the regular season and didn’t play in the first round.

As a side note, Greene turned 30 today and to celebrate his teammates were sporting green jerseys during Monday’s practice.

    YOU GUYS ARE ALL “GREENE” WITH ENVY !!!

    Siegfried Line, Berlin Wall, Hoover Dam … call it whatever you like, but the bottom line is that we Kings have the absolute ‘best’ defensive corps in the business and it’s only going to get better for us as we go forward ! Matt Greene is easily counted among the ‘top 5′ NHL blue liners today and we haven’t even had him in our lineup yet. Can you imagine how much stronger we’re going to be when he does rejoin the team shortly? … it’s almost too scary to imagine ! :)

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) :) :) :) :)
