GAME 2 RECAP ATTACK:
ARE THE KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?:
The LA Kings backs are up against the wall (yet again) and with their young defensemen struggling mightily... Darryl Sutter is left with only one option.

Willie Mitchell is skating on his own this morning for the #LAKings.— Cörey Masisak (@cmasisak22) May 13, 2014
Willie Mitchell is on the ice by himself, skating and taking shots before practice.— Rich Hammond (@Rich_Hammond) May 13, 2014
Willie Mitchell was briefly on the ice before LA Kings practice. He's been out for 6 games.— Greg Beacham (@gregbeacham) May 13, 2014
There is still a lot of time left in this game... but, since I have your attention... I will be SHOCKED if @Willie_Mitch33 doesn't play Wed.— The Mayor John Hoven (@mayorNHL) May 13, 2014
Willie Mitchell skated today, but don't expect him to play tomorrow: http://t.co/H5Bbylikm7— Jon Rosen (@lakingsinsider) May 13, 2014
Chances of Willie Mitchell playing Game 6 seem tiny at best. Then again, it is the playoffs.— Rich Hammond (@Rich_Hammond) May 13, 2014
Wireless issues earlier, so retweeting that Kings D Willie Mitchell skated before team today. First skate since injury. Ruled out by Sutter— Helene Elliott (@helenenothelen) May 13, 2014
If you think NHL coaches are the best sources for injury updates, you're wrong. Enough said.— The Mayor John Hoven (@mayorNHL) May 13, 2014
@vapper1971 Said my peace on this. It's all over MayotsManor, twitter, radio, etc. Expecting 33 or 44 to play tomorrow. Slight edge to 33..— The Mayor John Hoven (@mayorNHL) May 14, 2014
So, if for some reason (even though Darryl Sutter clearly said wasn't going to do it) Willie Mitchell is in the starting lineup tonight... it will be the unveiling of the latest breakthrough in injury rehab technology since the Vancouver Canucks used a hyperbaric chamber...
