BREAKING: LA Kings Announce Worst-Case News Before Tonight's Matchup vs Edmonton Oilers

In breaking news ahead of tonight's NHL playoff round 1 matchup between the Edmonton Oilers and the LA Kings, it has been confirmed that the Kings' best player and highest point scorer of the regular season, Kevin Fiala, will be missing game 1 and may be out for the entire best of 7 game series. This news comes after Fiala and Vilardi were not on the ice during this morning's practice, with Fiala not even skating on his own. While Vilardi skated yesterday, he will also be missing tonight's game.



This is a significant blow to the Kings' chances of advancing in the playoffs, as Fiala's absence will be felt both on and off the ice. However, the Oilers will be looking to take advantage of this situation and start the series off with a win. It remains to be seen if Fiala will be able to return later in the series, but for now, the Kings will have to find a way to cope without their star forward.
