CHICAGO -- Los Angeles Kings center Mike Richards (concussion) made the trip here for Game 5 of the Western Conference Final against the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS), but it's likely he'll miss his fourth straight game.
"Honestly, I couldn't tell you," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "It is doubtful at best."
Richards hasn't played since he was hit hard behind the goal line by Chicago center Dave Bolland in Game 1. Richards skated the day in between Games 3 and 4, but Sutter said he did not do much in the way of a workout Thursday and the Kings did not skate Friday.
I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
