LOS ANGELES — Center Artem Anisimov will be ready to go for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Anisimov, who suffered an apparent leg injury last month, has been skating well in Chicago during the team’s season-ending road trip and will be in the lineup when the playoffs open, likely Thursday.
‘‘I don’t know if [there is any] doubt at all,’’ Quenneville said. ‘‘He’s good to go.’’
Meanwhile, defenseman Michal Rozsival (upper body) and winger Andrew Desjardins (lower body), both of whom figure to be extras when the playoffs begin, are day-to-day with injuries suffered Thursday against the Ducks. Rozsival was sucker-punched by the Ducks’ Nick Ritchie, a blow that earned Ritchie a two-game suspension.
Quenneville said he hadn’t heard any news about defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson, who has been tending to a family matter this week.
The Hawks got a scare for the second consecutive game when winger Marian Hossa left in the first period Saturday after taking a slash on the right arm from the Kings’ Jarome Iginla. He returned for the second period and appeared fine.
On Thursday, winger Ryan Hartman left the game briefly after being slashed on the right arm by the Ducks’ Corey Perry after the whistle. The Ducks and Kings are two of the more physical teams in the league.
The Kings spent the game honoring broadcaster Bob Miller, who is retiring after 44 seasons with the team.
