Based on Darryl Sutter's comments Friday, it appeared that veteran defenseman Robyn Regehr would be back in the Los Angeles Kings lineup for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, but that won't be the case. Regehr, who has been out of the lineup since injuring his knee in Game 1 of the Kings' series against the Anaheim Ducks, was listed as a scratch on the final roster report.

Matt Greene, who Regehr would likely have replaced had he been inserted into the lineup, will remain in for the Kings. He has been paired occasionally with Alec Martinez on the Kings' third defensive pairing.

It sounded as though Regehr was healthy enough to play, so this may just be a lineup decision by Sutter.

The New York Rangers will have a change in lineup, however, as defenseman John Moore is back in for the Blueshirts. The puck-moving defenseman sat out the last two games while serving his suspension for a late hit on Canadiens forward Dale Weise in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Moore has one assist in 17 playoff games and has average just over 14 minutes a game. He replaces Raphael Diaz in the lineup.
