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.
