Los Angeles Kings Forward To Miss Crucial Game Three

The Los Angeles Kings started their first-round series against the Edmonton Oilers strong, picking up a 4-3 overtime win, but fell in Game Two, and now they head back to Los Angeles looking to take charge of their series.

Unfortunately, they'll have to do so without one of their best young players, as Blake Lizotte has officially been ruled out with a lower body injury, adding to an injury report that already has Kevin Fiala ruled out as well. 

During the regular season, Lizotte appeared in 81 games with 11 goals and 23 assists for 34 points, and is a key piece of the Kings third line, and if they are to take down the high powered Oilers offence, they'll need to get healthy in a hurry.
