Kings forward Marian Gaborik, who left Friday's game after a knee-on-knee collision with Rangers forward Dominic Moore, will be returning to Los Angeles on Saturday for additional evaluation.
Gaborik was hurt in the first period and did not return as the Kings went on to win, 5-4, in overtime. He was unable to put any weight on his left leg after the collision and needed assistance getting back to the dressing room.
The Kings will not be making a recall from their minor-league team in Ontario (Calif)., for now, since they have two extra forwards available and it doesn't make sense to fly someone cross-country to join the team on this long trip.
