07:30 AM ET 10.30 | The Kings on Tuesday suffered their fifth loss of the season, and Dustin Brown was again held scoreless -- he has only two goals on the year, both coming back on Oct. 9. What's more noteworthy is that his hits-per-game average is dramatically down, a key statistic for a player whose physicality helped create and sustain the Kings' identity. Brown has been credited with 25 hits in 12 games, ranking him 63rd in the NHL through Monday's games. ... Stats don't always tell the full story, but Brown's hit total means something to Coach Darryl Sutter. "Yeah, it does, because he's got to play a certain way to be effective and that's important," Sutter said.

The headline should have been, "what Brown can't do for you".

The Kings are a shell of a team without Scuderi.

Crosby's breathing heavy knowing Phil's only two points back of him.

Only PM would want Phil back of him. :o)

As long as PK keeps potting them I'll have a reason to watch Leafs highlights...hockey pool purposes only.

I can admit the guy can play!

Picking 10th overall it had to be done.

Just like turning on the CBC at the top of the hour on a Saturday night to watch Don Cherry!

Yeah, broken ankle, that will be rough. Worked out good for Maatta though. They were debating on sending him down to Juniors for one more year, but when Scuderi went down that ended the debate.

That is a disturbing image. Sid breathing hard and Phil in back of him.

Indeed. You don't like to see him cheating on Bozack.

Do they really expect the guy to maintain that level of hitting for the rest of his career? That's nuts! He'll self destruct!

Still has more points than Stephen Weiss.
