EL SEGUNDO, CA — That their Western Conference Semifinal series against the San Jose Sharks is now tied, 2-2, might be the bottom line for the Los Angeles Kings heading into Thursday’s Game 5 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Did San Jose Sharks GM Doug Wilson Try To Pull A Fast One In Statement On Torres Suspension?

COMMENTARY: Over the last few weeks, the Los Angeles Kings have been involved in two incidents involving blows to the head of a player. Both times, the player who was hit suffered an injury, and in each case, a player was suspended.
