SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Los Angeles forwards Mike Cammalleri and
Alexander Frolov missed the Kings' 3-2 shootout win against the San Jose Sharks
on Wednesday night because of groin injuries, leaving the club
without two of its three leading scorers.
Cammalleri had a team-best 12 goals and eight assists while
playing in each of the Kings' first 23 games. He scored 10 goals in
Los Angeles' first 10 games, but had just one assist in the last
five before he was made a late scratch against the Sharks.
Frolov, whose four goals and 16 assists match Cammalleri and
Anze Kopitar for a team-leading 20 points, didn't make the trip to
San Jose. Frolov, who has a seven-game scoring streak, has missed
three straight games with the injury.
Because of the injuries, 37-year-old defenseman Jon Klemm played
his second straight game at forward on a line with Matt Moulson and
Brian Willsie. Klemm was recalled from the Kings' AHL affiliate in
Manchester on Sunday.
