The Kings will be without Dustin Brown when they face the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday after the forward was suspended one game following a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety. Brown was penalized for kneeing Tampa Bay defenseman Mikhail Sergachev in the second period of Saturday's game in Florida. That earned Brown a penalty and an ejection, punishment the league increased on Sunday. The fact that Brown is a repeat offender likely figured in the league's decision. Just three weeks ago he was fined $10,000 for cross-checking Justin Schultz of the Pittsburgh Penguins. He was suspended two games in 2013 for an illegal elbow to the head of Minnesota's Jason Pominville.
