 LOS ANGELES (AP) - Kings center Jarret Stoll is likely to miss Game 2 of Los Angeles' second-round playoff series against the Sharks after a hard hit from San Jose's Raffi Torres in the opener.
Los Angeles coach Darryl Sutter implied Wednesday that Stoll could be out for a significant length of time after getting hit by Torres, who has a history of dangerous play.
Torres hit Stoll late in the second period of the defending Stanley Cup champions' 2-0 victory over San Jose on Tuesday. Stoll didn't return.
Torres is expected to have an in-person disciplinary hearing with NHL officials over the hit. Game 2 is Thursday night.
Sutter says he thought the hit was ``careless.'' A suspension for Torres wouldn't make him feel better because ``our player is quite a bit more important than theirs.''
