Kings played through injuries

There has been speculation throughout the playoffs of high profile Los Angeles Kings players dealing with injuries that would have normally kept them out of action in the regular season. Darryl Sutter addressed the issue without going into specifics following the Game 5 loss.

Darryl Sutter, on how banged up the team was:
“Three, four guys that were game time after Game 6 in San Jose, literally. I think most teams are going to say that the farther you go. Also tells you how tough it is to win, how you need that. I know it’s something that gets talked lots about. You have to stay healthy. Have you to be close to 100%, especially with your top guys. I know we weren’t.”

Shortly afterwards, Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com and Lisa Dillman of the LA Times provided the specifics.
