What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Hopefully that doesn't apply to the Stanley Cup. Members of the Kings celebrated their NHL championship at the TAO nightclub in the Venetian Las Vegas Resort and Casino on Thursday night. And it was quite the show.

The Alberta high couldn't even last 24 hours for the Kings. Forward Jeff Carter , acquired from the Columbus Blue Jackets shortly before the league's trade deadline, injured his ankle late in Wednesday's resounding 3-0 win against the Flames at Calgary. From what Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi was saying, it sounded as though Carter would not be able to play Friday at Edmonton. Still the team is calling the injury day to day. "It happened late, but he was able to finish the game," a glum-sounding Lombardi said on Thursday afternoon in a telephone interview.

The Kings lost a game Thursday but dodged a far more dire fate. Center Anze Kopitar, helped off the ice at 12:12 of the third period of what became a 5-4 shootout loss to the Dallas Stars at Staples Center, had a bloody nose and sore neck and shoulder and will be monitored Friday. However, General Manager Dean Lombardi said Kopitar's injuries were not as serious as they initially appeared. "He should be fine," Coach Darryl Sutter said, a bloody nose and sore neck being all in a day's work for him in his playing and farming days.

The defenseman played at Phoenix on Saturday and at Colorado the following day and was a minus-two and had one assist in the Kings' loss to the Avalanche. "Drew has played with a great deal of 'I-want-to-do-it,' " Coach Terry Murray said after practice Tuesday. "And he wants to make a difference every time he is on the ice every shift, and sometimes you can get yourself into a little bit of a jackpot when you go into that with that attitude.

Center Mike Richards won't be in the lineup when the Kings face the Chicago Blackhawks at Staples Center Thursday night in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, Coach Darryl Sutter confirmed after the team's optional skate and morning meeting. The Kings trail the series, two games to one. Richards, who suffered a concussion when he was hit by Chicago's Dave Bolland in Game 1, missed Games 2 and 3 but skated for about 20 minutes with the Kings' extra players on Wednesday. However, Richards did not participate in the game-day skate Thursday, and Sutter ruled him out of the game.
