Saturday skate update

After a brief skate today, Brad Richardson said he felt better than he expected to — following his appendectomy on Monday — but it doesn’t seem likely that Richardson will play tomorrow. He said he is scheduled to see a doctor again on Monday, but he’s also getting good treatment at home. His mother, Jan, was visiting this week. She’s a nurse and told Richardson to go to the doctor, because she believed be was having issues with his appendix.

Kyle Clifford, officially listed with an upper-body injury, didn’t skate today and isn’t expected to play tomorrow. Darryl Sutter offered no further update.

Lots of talk today about the kings not being overconfident and about “hitting the reset button” at home, particularly given the Kings’ struggles at home in the playoffs in the last two years. More notes and quotes to come…
