Mike Richards injury: Kings forward out for third straight game with concussion

The Los Angeles Kings have already gone two games without one of their best two-way forwards, and will now have to try and play a third.

Forward Mike Richards is out yet again for Los Angeles. Richards, who took the warmups for Game 2 and then was scratched, skated briefly on Wednesday, but did not take part in the morning skate for the Kings. He is listed as out for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.

The Kings won Game 3 of the series, despite not having one of their biggest offensive threats. They're used to getting by without a lot of scoring, as they've only scored three or more goals (without an empty netter) in three games this entire postseason. Richards still leads the Kings in scoring, providing eight assists and 10 points. Rookie Tyler Toffoli will be in the lineup again for Richards.
