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.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
