Straka actually left the game temporarily in the second period after being checked into the boards by Tkachuk near the King blue line. He returned later than expected, in the third period, because on-site doctors hired by the Blues did not respond quickly, Murray said.

"Martin Straka gets hurt in the seven-minute mark of the second period and the doctors finally get to our dressing room in the intermission," Murray said. "We were screaming for the doctors and they don't show up. That's unacceptable. I told them that too. We'll call the league on that."

Straka was diagnosed with a bruised right shoulder but said he would play Thursday against the Dallas Stars.
I think that he will fit in with the Kings just fine. Only took him less than half of a game to get injured.
