Who’s Next? Nolan and Doughty Hurt?
Jordan Nolan played only one shift in the 3rd period. Now, you could say it was a 0-0 game and the Kings needed some scoring and less grit, but Nolan was absent from the bench.
Doughty got his hand whacked in the game against the Islanders and last night was hurt when he was checked into the boards. He’s “banged up” according to my source. Sutter used the same phrase when talking about Matt Greene. If DD plays against the Rangers, it will be surprising. Manchester is close enough that the Kings could call up the experienced Jeff Schultz, but knowing Doughty, his limbs would have to be dangling off of him in order to keep him off the ice.
Would the Kings bring up ANOTHER kid? Andy Andreoff or Brandon Kozun or Jordan Weal or Brian O’Neill?
The Kings are off today – great – an off day in New York City – On a Saturday – I’m expecting a sluggish game against the Rangers, who luckily are in Montreal today.
