Carter sidelined at least one game with ankle injury
The Kings' push to the postseason will have to go on without Jeff Carter for at least one game.

Carter suffered an ankle injury in Wednesday's win at Calgary and likely will not play Friday in Edmonton, according to the L.A. Kings Insider blog on the team's website.

Carter has 6 goals and 3 assists in 16 games since arriving in Los Angeles in the Feb. 24 trade. He has been a regular on the second line with Mike Richards and the Kings are 11-5 with Carter in the lineup.

If Carter can't go, it is possible that Brad Richardson takes his place on the second line with Richards and either Dwight King or Jordan Nolan. Richardson has 3 goals and 2 assists in 54 games this season. He has been a healthy scratch 23 times.

"I haven't decided yet," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "Lots of guys can play different positions. We'll see what the Oilers are doing first."
Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
