Tampa Bay Lightning's Marty St. Louis hurt but plays vs. Los Angeles Kings

LOS ANGELES — Somehow, Marty St. Louis got his foot into a skate.

Despite a swollen left big toe that was hit by a puck in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Ducks, the Lightning left wing, who could not even put on a sneaker, played Thursday against the Kings.

St. Louis extended his consecutive-games-played streak to 402, the league's fourth-longest active streak.

"But he's not in top shape, that's for sure," coach Guy Boucher said.

Even so, Tampa Bay's injury list expanded. Defenseman Victor Hedman was sidelined with a foot injury sustained Wednesday and that apparently required X-rays.

Also out: left wing Simon Gagne (neck), defenseman Matt Smaby (foot) and center Dominic More (groin).

Moore might play Saturday against the Sharks, though Tuesday against the Maple Leafs is more likely, Boucher said.

Also hurting but playing were forwards Nate Thompson (knee), Steve Downie (back) and Mattias Ritola (illness).
