Stoll likely to miss Game 2 of LA's playoff series against Sharks after hard hit from Torres

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Kings centre Jarret Stoll is likely to miss Game 2 of Los Angeles' second-round playoff series against the Sharks after a hard hit from San Jose's Raffi Torres in the opener.

Los Angeles coach Darryl Sutter implied Wednesday that Stoll could be out for a significant length of time after getting hit by Torres, who has a history of dangerous play.

Torres hit Stoll late in the second period of the defending Stanley Cup champions' 2-0 victory over San Jose on Tuesday. Stoll didn't return.

Torres is expected to have an in-person disciplinary hearing with NHL officials over the hit. Game 2 is Thursday night.

Sutter says he thought the hit was "careless." A suspension for Torres wouldn't make him feel better because "our player is quite a bit more important than theirs."
