Mike Richards scored two goals, Tanner Pearson scored a goal and added an assist, and Nic Dowd scored a goal for the Kings in Glendale, but that was not enough as the Coyotes got two goals from Martin Hanzal and goals from Henrik Samuelsson, and Sam Gagner, along with the shootout game-winner by Samuelsson, giving the Coyotes a 5-4 win.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — With defenseman Drew Doughty still a no-show on the ice at the Los Angeles Kings 2014 training camp due to an upper body injury and with players and coaches refusing to comment on the status of Kyle Clifford (wrist), Jonathan Quick (wrist), and Jarret Stoll (hip), who are all recovering from off-season surgery, the story lines for Day 2 of the Kings training camp sounded a lot like they did for Day 1.

However, some new tidbits surfaced, including a commitment each player made before they all went their separate ways for the summer.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Day 2 of the Los Angeles Kings 2014 training camp has come and gone with very similar story lines compared to Day 1 on September 19.

On both days, players touched on their goals for the season and about the chance they have to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — On September 19, the first day on the ice during their 2014 training camp, the Los Angeles Kings were missing one notable player and had several others operating at less than 100 percent.

Missing in action from the morning session was defenseman Drew Doughty, who suffered an upper body injury during the off-season.

Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reported seeing Doughty skating just prior to training camp at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California (Kings practice facility), so it would appear that the injury is not serious.

Center Jarret Stoll and left wing Kyle Clifford skated during training camp drills after undergoing off-season hip and wrist surgeries, respectively.
