Los Angeles Kings get injured C Mike Richards back in lineup for Game 5 against Blackhawks

CHICAGO - Los Angeles Kings centre Mike Richards is back in the lineup for Game 5 of the Western Conference finals against the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Richards missed three games because of an apparent concussion after he took a big hit from Chicago's Dave Bolland late in Game 1.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter said Friday that Richards' return was still doubtful. However, Richards skated on Saturday morning, and Sutter placed his chances of playing at "50-50."

Richards then warmed up with the team and was listed in the lineup for the game. His return comes at a pivotal time for the Kings, who trailed the best-of-seven series 3-1. Richards leads the club with eight post-season assists.
