A few moments ago, Elliotte Friedman of the 32 thoughts podcast and Sportsnet insider announced that LA kings head coach Jim hiller made it major lineup change to which backup goalie David Rittich will draw in for Game four against the Oilers.

It appears the LA kings are trying something different as starting goaltender Cam Talbot has not been able to outplay Oilers goaltender Stuart Skinner as he has given up 17 goals in three games. Over the past three games, he has only one win but an eye watering goals against of 5.30 and a save percentage of .861.
Those numbers will not win you a playoff series.
Meanwhile, the Oilers have released their line up for Game 4 where head coach Kris Knoblauch has not made any changes. Stuart Skinner will man the pipes for the Oilers and the team continues to have hope that Evander Kane will re-emerge and become a force in this series as he is alongside Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent Hopkins.
Starting your backup goaltender does not give your fanbase confidence especially with Rittich but to be fair he has only played two playoff games in his whole career with less than flattering numbers.
Game 4 will take place today on April 28th and game time will be at 10:30 PM eastern
