The Kings pulled out a 3-2 overtime victory over the Ducks in Game 1 of their Freeway Series on Saturday night, but they finished the game without defenseman Robyn Regehr. The veteran played only 3 minutes, 23 seconds in the first period and was the target of a couple of hard hits along the boards, including one from the Ducks’ Teemu Selanne that left Regehr in an awkward position.
Kings coach Darryl Sutter declined to talk about Regehr’s injury except to point out the obvious that he was injured and didn’t return to the game. Regehr’s status is uncertain. If he can’t play in Game 2 on Monday, it would mean the Kings would be without two of their veterans. Willie Mitchell sat out Game 1 because of an unspecified injury suffered during Game 6 of the first-round series against San Jose. Mitchell did not play in Game 7 against the Sharks.
