The Los Angeles Kings made a major change to the line up to deal with the Edmonton Oilers in game four.

According to multiple reports, it looks like the Kings decided switch things up in front of the net for their fourth clash against Connor McDavid and the Oilers.
Per Elliotte Friedman:
"In Los Angeles, head coach Jim Hiller tells reporters the Kings will start David Rittich in Game 4"

In game three, Cam Talbot allowed six goals on 40 shots, and it looks like Hiller decided it was time to change things up. Im the first three games, Talbot has a 5.30 GAA and a .861 SV%, which is very far from what we've seen from him this season. He had a 27-20-6 record, a .913 SV% and a 2.50 GAA.
Rittich, 31, took part in 196 NHL regular season games in his career. He played in only two games during the playoffs; oen with the Calgary Flames in 2019-20, and one with the Nashville Predators in 2021-22.
During the playoffs, such bets can pay, but they can also be a big risk. We'll know soon enough if Hiller made the right call, as game four is set to go down on Sunday night, at 22:30 pm E.T.
Stay tuned.
