Dustin Brown is dealing with more than just an illness. The Los Angeles Kings captain didn’t play on Saturday and missed Sunday’s practice due to a lower-body injury as well, according to LA Kings Insider.

The ailment is being termed as minor, but it looks like he’ll probably miss a second straight game on Monday and his availability for Thursday’s contest is still up in the air.

He was hurt earlier this week, which means that this might be related to his benching on Thursday. He was limited to 10:12 minutes in that game and when Kings coach Darryl Sutter was asked about it, he said it was because Brown’s line was tired.

The 29-year-old forward is having a rough season, but he was hot following the Olympics with two goals and six points in six games. Meanwhile the Kings have lost two straight games and are all-but locked in as the Pacific Division’s third seed.

    No the benching was more about him being useless this year.

        hate to say this, but you three losers are what we used to call ‘suck holes’ back in the 70’s … all tough and pompous in their shiny leather jackets, but once the action started, nothing but ‘bloodied & beaten’ fools lying face down in the street …

        Blom, you are the only one making physical threats with your internet muscle. I imagine you knee and run like your idol, Browknee . . .

        “suck holes” – you just described Brown.

    Kings better pick it up.

    Not only SJ in 1st but due to the playoff brackets and seeding changes if the the winner of KINGS/SHARKS series would likely play ANAHEIM DUCKS in the 1st Rd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    NHL has regionalized playoffs so that the 1st 2 rds are (minus the wild cards) will be division specific.

    If 2 powerhouse teams are in the same division CHI/STL or ANA/SJ/LA they will have to meet in the 2nd rd for years to come instead of usually having a 1-2 Seed meet in the Conference finals…..they will be forced to knock each other out by the 2nd round every year!

    Reminds me of the Mid 80’s to 90’s where the OILERS and FLAMES were the 2 best teams in the NHL but since they were in the same division they ended up knocking each other out in the 2nd RD and the Conference Finals were a Joke because the they would get ROLLED by the Oilers or Flames

      Dear diary.

        I’m sorry. I can’t address you as macho – that name you chose evokes thoughts of someone who overcompensates for his shortcomings (SHORT being the operative word here, if you get my drift).

        You seem to have an obsession with blomfeld and joey. One might even suspect that you are, in fact, a third iteration of them – the triplet who is evil and who posts remarks in order to argue with the others (rather, with yourself). It’s either that, or you have some sort of man-love thing going for blomfeld, and a man-boy fascination with joey4id.

        I’ve noticed that you don’t post substantive comments nor comments having anything to do with the particular article. This leads me to believe that you are merely a troll who searches for people to insult and call names. This speaks of someone who was picked on as a child … one having been bullied who grows up to be a bully.

        I suggest you get help for this mental problem of yours. As to your physical problem (your shortcoming), I’m afraid there is no help for that. Perhaps, for your next screen name, you might fantasize further and call yourself some variation of John Holmes. That might make you feel better about yourself.

        Bye-bye, LITTLE man.

      yes Aldog83, I agree … however we have to play through them regardless and so why not ‘deal’ with them sooner than later ? … regardless, we Kings are a team ‘built’ for the playoffs as you know … so don’t read too much into this ‘regular season’ fluff …

    Full marks to Dadoun and crew for penning this excellent article ! It’s like ‘of course’ there was an explanation for our SC winning captain not feeling up to par eh ? Anyway, now all we can do is hope that Dustin can mend his hurts ‘post haste’ and thus be able to take his place back in our vanguard asap. Friends, I believe that that will be the case and God willing it will ! :)
