Ryan Kesler played the majority of the postseason with a shoulder injury.
He suffered the injury back on April 21 in Game 4 against the Los Angeles Kings when he hit Anze Kopitar. "It's playoffs: You've got to play hurt, you've got to play injured, you've got to play through it," Kesler said. "Obviously I didn't have my best series and it hurts." He collected four assists in six games against the Blackhawks in the second round, while tallying one goal and five helpers in six contests versus the Kings.
