The Anaheim Ducks Defeated The Los Angeles Kings In A Pacific Division Battle

from Curtis Zupke of the LA Times,

The Kings and Ducks have always produced a tug-of-war dynamic, spiked with as much hatred as any rivals in the NHL. But they decided to keep their gloves on Friday to exchange different kinds of blows.

The Ducks continued to pull themselves up with a 2-1 win that drew them even with the Kings with 53 points in the Pacific Division. The Kings got pushed further down with their sixth straight loss and no end in sight for an offense that has scored three goals in three games.

Ryan Kesler delivered the game-winner on a deflection with 7:39 to play in the third period and the Ducks fended off the extra-attacker surge by the Kings in front of an announced 17,258 standing-room only crowd at Honda Center.

“That was a huge win for us, coming off the last game and trying to keep this going, keep the momentum going at home for this homestand,” said Adam Henrique, who gave the Ducks a 1-0 lead in the third period. “I thought we played well. They were in a back-to-back situation and we were trying to take advantage of that in the first period and get pucks and bodies to the net. They came back with a push in the second period and I thought we did a good job responding and coming out hard in the third.”

Losing Streak Hits Five For The Los Angeles Kings

from Curtis Zupke of the LA Times,

It was one fell swoop, er, one illegal hit against the one team they couldn’t put on the power play that doomed them Thursday. Dustin Brown’s hit on Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Justin Schultz resulted in a five-minute boarding major that the Penguins used to put the game away 3-1 and send the Kings to a season-high fifth straight loss in front of 18,230 fans at Staples Center.

The reverberations were felt in the standings, too, because the Kings fell to ninth in the Western Conference, or out of the playoff picture for the first time this season. That’s based on a game in hand by the Colorado Avalanche, but it’s a minor detail in a bigger picture that is slipping from the Kings’ hands.

“It’s been tough,” Brown said. “It’s frustrating to lose five straight, especially in the situation we were in … it’s one of those things where you have to realize where you are. It’s been hard. It’s been brutal here for us, frustrating. But … we’re still fighting for a spot.”

Big Win For The Anaheim Ducks Over The Los Angeles Kings

from Eric Stephens of the OC Register,

The message was laid out in simple terms from a team that is peering through the window at those who currently reside in the playoff positions within the Western Conference.

Hours in front of another tense, fight-filled Freeway Faceoff against the Kings, the Ducks’ Kevin Bieksa offered his to-the-point summation. “That’s a team that we need to catch,” the longtime defenseman said. “This is the best way to do it, by taking two points from them.”

Ah, if it were only that easy. Nothing is in this series that’s often decided by one goal and the Kings weren’t going to fade away at Staples Center on Saturday night, even when they stared at a three-goal deficit.

Nick Shore and Anze Kopitar gave them a look at a dramatic comeback in the third period but Corey Perry’s long-distance goal into an empty net secured a 4-2 win for the Ducks as the rivals kicked off another important stretch in their respective schedules following a bye week.

Another Loss For The Edmonton Oilers

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

Slaughtered 5-0 by the Winnipeg Jets, then bludgeoned to the same 5-0 tune by the Los Angeles Kings – in consecutive home games – the Edmonton Oilers season is swirling the bowl this morning....

Tuesday night a familiar flaw was first star at Rogers Place, as the Oilers’ historically horrid penalty killing unit allowed three goals in a five-minute major penalty, ensuring Edmonton’s fourth straight loss since the Christmas break.

With the score 1-0 for L.A. and just five seconds to play in the second period, Edmonton’s Pat Maroon was given a match penalty and ejected for a head shot on Kings defenceman Drew Doughty.

By the time Maroon left the box at 4:55 of the third period, the score was 4-0. Game over.

Kings vs. Oilers Means Doughty vs. McDavid

from Curtis Zupke of the LA Times,

Kings defenseman Drew Doughty will go against Edmonton’s Connor McDavid for the first time this season in a juicy sub-story to an important game for both teams. Doughty is having another Norris Trophy-worthy season, and McDavid is widely seen as the best, if not the most skilled, player in hockey.

“There’s a good chance I’ll be made foolish at least once,” Doughty said after the morning skate. “I enjoy it so much. When I have to play superstars like him on the other team, I get up for those games. That’s the most fun I have. I enjoy getting to know him off the ice a little bit, but when he’s on the ice, I’m going to do everything I can to play my best against him.”

Doughty remembers being embarrassed by the video game-like moves of McDavid before, and he’s keenly aware of not letting that happen again.

“I don’t forget those things, ever,” Doughty said. “I kind of owe him one. The only way I can really owe him is by hitting him, I think. It’s kind of hard to do that.”
