Kings’ Stoll suspended for Game 2

 

The challenge of  the heavily underdog, Los Angeles Kings, of evening their play-off series against the San Jose Sharks, got that much more challenging when it was announced that forward Jarret Stoll has been suspended. Stoll, who scored 20 goals this year and provides plenty of sandpaper, was sentenced by league senior vice president, Colin Campbell, for his controversial Game 1 hit from behind on Sharks’ Ian White. “Obviously I’m disappointed with the decision but I respect it,” said Stoll, whose Kings lost the opener by a 3-2 score. This ugly event occurred in the opening period, when players were fighting for the puck in the Sharks zone. Stoll skated in and drove White’s head into the glass. White went right to the dressing  and did not return, and is questionable for Game 2 on Saturday night. Stoll, who didn’t get a penalty on that play, won’t be back until Tuesday in Los Angeles for Game 3.
