Mike Richards plays in Game 5


Darryl Sutter was careful to hedge his bets for Game 5 on Saturday, listing Mike Richards as a “50-50” chance to play. It turns out the versatile center will, in fact, suit up for the Los Angeles Kings against the Chicago Blackhawks tonight.

Jordan Nolan is also making his way back into the Kings lineup as Colin Fraser and Brad Richardson are out of the mix.

Meanwhile, on the Blackhawks side, Sheldon Brookbank is the odd man out with Duncan Keith returning from his suspension.
