Cam Fowler is doubtful for the game against the Kings as he continues to recover from an upper-body muscle injury, suffered in the first period Wednesday against Colorado.
"It's just sore," the defenseman said. "It's kind of a day-by-day thing. Got to see how it goes and go from there. (I'm) keeping an eye on it. I'm doing a good job of whatever we have to do to get it to feel better. We'll see." If Fowler is unable to play, then Toni Lydman will draw in. Lydman has often been the odd man out in the blue-line mix as he has appeared in only three of the past 10 games.
