Pro Sports Daily:
Los Angeles Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell is expected to sit out Saturday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.
Kings coach John Stevens said Mitchell was doubtful to play due to a groin injury.
Mitchell has missed four of the past five games. After he was sidelined for two games, he returned to play against Dallas last Saturday before sitting out games at Boston and Columbus this week.
In 25 games this season, Mitchell has one goal and five assists.

I had to watch this one from my family’s Christmas party (it was lovely) with the volume off for over half the game, but I felt that the Wings’ 8-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings finished at such a lopsided score for a simple reason: around seven minutes into the second period, when the Wings would have been very happy to cruise along with a 4-1 lead, still shaking the loosey...
