Kings center Mike Richards season-ending interview (part 2)

Kings center Mike Richards said he felt helpless while sitting out with a concussion for three games during their conference finals loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. Here’s more from the veteran, who returned to the lineup and scored an unforgettable goal on a deflection in the closing seconds of regulation play to force Game 5 to overtime:

“It was a frustrating experience to watch, one I don’t want to have to do again. It was frustrating to sit in the press box with a concussion. I would feel good and then I would try to skate and I didn’t feel well. You realize you’re not only putting the team at risk, but yourself, too (by trying to play with a concussion). That’s the most frustrating part because you can’t help the team. You sit there and you wish you could do something.”
