Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell update
Kings coach Darryl Sutter called the play of defenseman Willie Mitchell “solid,” after Mitchell played nearly 17 minutes in Game 1, his first action since he suffered a leg injury in Game 6 of the Kings’ first-round series against the San Jose Sharks.
Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr update
Sutter said defenseman Robyn Regehr hasn’t resumed skating after he was injured in Game 1 of the Kings’ second-round series against the Ducks. Sutter’s policy is to avoid talking about injured players, so that was the only update he would provide reporters.
Blackhawks center Andrew Shaw update
Injured center Andrew Shaw is expected to skate with his Blackhawks teammates today, and Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said the team would “assess” his progress, adding, “He’s made real good progress the last few days and he felt pretty good (Monday).”
