Anze Kopitar And Jeff Zatkoff Injured In Loss To Ottawa

from lisa Dillman of the LA Times,

First, of course, the one on the scoreboard, in which they let two points slip away and didn’t even skate away with one. Ottawa forward Zack Smith tied the game with 3:54 remaining in regulation, and the Senators won with Mark Stone’s goal with 6.5 seconds left, beating the flustered Kings, 2-1, at Canadian Tire Centre on Friday night....

The Kings lost their captain Anze Kopitar to injury for most of the third period. He took a hit along the boards from Senators defenseman Marc Methot early in the third and left the game. Judging from one replay, by the way Kopitar reacted, it appeared as though the left arm-wrist area was affected.

Kopitar later came back for a shift, and then shut it down....

Kings Coach Darryl Sutter said that Zatkoff, “pulled himself after the second period. I don’t know what it is.”

The Kings PR staff said it was a lower-body injury. Zatkoff said he would wait until Saturday to talk about what happened. He made a sprawling save in the second period but played the rest of the period....

Sutter noted that Kopitar attempted to come back after his injury. “He’s the kind of guy who is going to try to play,” he said.

50 Years Of Hockey In LA

from Rob Blake, Ted Irvine, Anze Kopitar, Luc Robitaille AND Charlie Simmer at the Players' Tribune,

Rob Blake (1989–2001, ’06–08)

I was in my college dorm at Bowling Green the day Wayne Gretzky got traded. It’s certainly one of those “I know where I was” moments for anyone in the hockey world. So when the King’s called me up to play the final four games of the NHL season a year and a half later, I knew I’d get to meet him.

“Hey, I’m Wayne Gretzky, nice to meet you,” he said, right as I walked into the dressing room of the Forum for the first time.

All I could think was: I know exactly who you are. I have your posters on my wall!

Ted Irvine (1967–70)

Yeah, it wasn’t quite like that for us back in in 1967, I can assure you of that. The Kings were the first real step into California for the NHL, and there were definitely some growing pains. First and foremost was fielding a team. The expansion draft back then wasn’t at all like what is today. The original six owners just didn’t want to give up any of their players — plain and simple. So our team was made up of minor leaguers … and also the legend, Terry Sawchuk.

Darryl Sutter On His Goaltender

from Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insiders,

On how to turn around the losing streak (3 losses):

Score a goal. I mean, disappointing. Not a recipe for success tonight when you don’t score and don’t get any saves.

On the decision to pull Peter Budaj:

He wasn’t very good. I mean, did you look at the shots and scoring chances? He wasn’t very good. That’s clear. I don’t pull goalies very often, but they’re expected to make some saves. When they scored with 15 seconds left in the first period, that’s deflating to our hockey club. Or whatever it was – less than that, maybe. I’d say the only good goal tonight was Kesler’s tap-in.

Another LA Kings Goalie Goes Down With A Groin Issue

from Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider,

The Los Angeles Kings’ goaltending health took another blow on Saturday as Jeff Zatkoff suffered a groin injury during the morning skate. A Kings public relations representative said that the goaltender is “questionable” for tonight’s game against Vancouver, but because the goalie needed assistance off the ice and towards the dressing room, it should be expected that Jack Campbell, who backstopped Ontario to a 6-5 overtime win last night at Citizens Business Bank Arena, would be brought in to back up Peter Budaj at Staples Center tonight.

“He stopped a shot, and his groin tightened up,” Darryl Sutter said. “We’ve seen it in a game, and now we’ve seen it in practice.”

There’s no word yet on the severity of the injury or whether Zatkoff will see a doctor today.

continued

Reports are Jack Campbell has been recalled and will back-up Budaj in net tonight.

Video- Lindy Ruff Not Happy With LA Kings OT Goal

"I think that was a terrible call at the end of the game. I thought our goaltender was interfered with, he was elbowed in the head before the puck went in the net. Terrible. Someone is going to have to explain why that goal counts. I want an explanation. He's in the paint, he's elbowed in the head before the puck gets there and it goes in our net. They look at it for five seconds and they call it a goACod goal. Take a look at the replay. Elbowed in the head, in the paint before the goal was in. I got a call in London, in preseason, where the referee came over and said, he's in the paint, it's no goal and we didn't even touch the goaltender. Terrible call.

-Dallas Stars head coach Lindy Ruff.  Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News has more post-game talk from Ruff.

You can watch the goal below at the 3:00 mark of the video.  Video of just the goal doesn't show a replay but the game recap video does, so that is what I used.

Also, watch the hit on Patrick Sharp below   Ruff says Sharp will be out and evaluated today.
