The Kings’ injury updates are not good.
Ryan Smyth will not play tomorrow night and will be out “longer than that, for sure,” according to Terry Murray. Smyth, still officially listed with an upper-body injury, is scheduled to see a team doctor tomorrow for an evaluation. Hopefully we’ll know more after that.
Murray said Rob Scuderi came to the practice facility for treatment this morning but also will not play tomorrow. Murray said he is “progressing, but not ready.”
In Smyth’s absense, Alexander Frolov becomes the first-line left wing, alongside Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams. Murray said he had not yet decided who would skate on Michal Handzus’ left wing.
