LOS ANGELES - We may be in Hollywood, but the star power for Game 4 of the Western Conference final has lost some of its shine for both participants.

The Chicago Blackhawks, looking to stretch their lead to 3-1 tonight at the Staples Center, will be without suspended all-star defenceman Duncan Keith.

The Kings will once again have to generate offence without talented centre Mike Richards, who may have suffered a regression in his recovery from a concussion.
