quick's return highlights kings' victory over ducks


talk about getting up off the mat.the kings were where they’ve been for most of the past two weeks — playing from behind with their playoff aspirations on the ropes.then the right hand of the ducks’ ryan kesler felled jeff carter in a second-period fight, and that was the jab the kings desperately needed. carter returned to the game and made a masterful pass to tyler toffoli for the game-winning goal as the kings rallied for a 4-1 win against the ducks at staples center.carter’s 30th goal, on an empty net, capped the kings’ third win in nine games. it was made special by the return of goalie jonathan quick and kings coach darryl sutter’s 216th win to become the franchise’s all-time leader in coaching wins.sutter finally got what he sought from his top players. in addition to quick’s 32 sav






what we learned from the kings' 4-1 win over the ducks


the kings needed a win. the ducks probably needed a breather.boosted by the return of goalie jonathan quick, the kings erased a one-goal deficit late for a 4-1 win against the ducks on saturday at staples center. the kings pulled to three points out of a playoff spot while the ducks are stuck in win-loss mode. here’s what we learned:perhaps the best moment was before the game. the roar of the crowd when quick led the kings out for warmups marked a special moment, about five months in the waiting, as fans welcomed back the man who backstopped the team to two stanley cups.“i think the fans we’re more excited than the the guys on the ice were,” tyler toffoli said of quick.quick was his usual subdued self after the game, but his coach expounded on having him back.“it was exciting for everybody






ducks defeat kings, 4-3, in overtime to clinch pacific division title


a sense of relief, mixed with exhaustion, came from the ducks’ dressing room after it finally ended. the ducks have talked strictly about getting to the playoffs, so their fifth straight pacific division title earned with a 4-3 win against the kings on a drama-filled sunday finale was gravy. they fought off a die-hard kings team in announcer bob miller’s final game, clinched the division just by going to overtime and got shea theodore’s overtime goal for good measure. the ducks will play the calgary flames on thursday in the first round, but not without some reflection.“we went through a lot of ups and downs this year,” forward ryan getzlaf said. “we grew as a group as we went along, and that was a good sign. i thought the second half of the year, we did a lot better job with our composure






what we learned from the kings' win over the ducks


the ducks punched. the kings counterpunched.one was quite literal, in the form of kevin bieksa’s knockout blow to the kings’ andy andreoff. the other was a gritty, low-scoring win the kings needed in a season that was sinking fast.they prevailed, 2-1, in the fourth round of a shootout at staples center in a game between two struggling teams that got better the longer they went.here’s what we learned:the kings won’t put this on their mantlethey were on the verge of a regulation loss to a vulnerable rival that was missing its leading scorer (rickard rakell), top two centers (ryan getzlaf, ryan kesler) and fielding a lineup heavy on minor league players. a regulation loss would have put the ducks only two points behind the kings in the pacific division.that’s not really a confidence builder f

los angeles — the latest freeway faceoff wasn't even three minutes old when the anaheim ducks and the los angeles kings dropped the gloves.they did it again on the ensuing faceoff — and again on the faceoff after that."that's good hockey right there," ducks captain ryan getzlaf said with a grin.these rivals know it's never too early to fight for playoff position, and the ducks landed the biggest blows in the latest edition of their southern california feud.ondrej kase had two goals and an assist, john gibson made 23 saves and the ducks held on in the third period for their first victory of the season over the kings, 4-2 saturday night.ryan kesler scored a power-play goal and corey perry added an empty-net goal as the ducks returned from their bye week with a physical, entertaining performa






kings look to build off solid performance in win over ducks


trevor lewis of the kings hardly ever gets tapped on the shoulder to take part in a shootout. and when it happened late saturday night, he wasn’t flowing with confidence.lewis was sent out in the fourth round against ducks goalie ryan miller. it so happened that miller and lewis practiced together in informal offseason skates, and miller had stopped lewis in a shootout in 2013.“i think i’ve shot in two shootouts in my life and one was against him,” lewis said.lewis actually had four previous shootout attempts in his 10-year career with no success, until he beat miller cleanly with a wrist shot to help the kings earn a 2-1 win at staples center.“i think he’s studied shooters a lot and i’ve shot on him in the summertime quite a bit, so i think he kind of knew what i was going to do, so i swi






kings get off the mat to beat ducks 2-1


getting up off the mat took on two meanings for the kings.frustrated and irritable from a string of losses, they were perfectly willing to take out those aggressions against the ducks on saturday night. but that came to a literal halt when ducks defenseman kevin bieksa delivered an incredible knockout blow to andy andreoff on the first punch of their opening-period tussle.andreoff never returned. but the kings did.down a goal with 92 seconds remaining against the vulnerable and depleted ducks, the kings tied it on dustin brown’s goal with an extra attacker and won it, 2-1, in a shootout in front of 18,230 fans at staples center.anze kopitar and trevor lewis scored in the shootout, and jonathan quick allowed only a goal to corey perry in the extended session as the kings ended a three-game

wild, dumba find redemption in overtime win over ducks


a 3-2 overtime win over the ducks friday at honda center wasn’t just redemption for the wild after it bobbled a third-period lead earlier in the week in a loss to the kings.it was also an opportunity for defenseman matt dumba to rebound, and he did – scoring the game-deciding goal in the extra period while skating a career-high 30 minutes, 4 seconds.“i think he likes overtime,” coach bruce boudreau said. “he’s such a good skater, and he gets to roam a little bit. it works out really good for him.”dumba was on the ice for the wild’s third-period meltdown against the kings tuesday, as he was caught out of position when the kings broke out for a two-on-one that ended up as the first of four unanswered goals in the period for los angeles en route to its 5-2 victory.but against the ducks, dumba






kings must get better, and fast, but there’s no quick fix


in an instant the kings went from the tension of overtime to the end of their season, veering from the giddy notion that they could prevent the ducks from winning the pacific division title to the realization that their next important decision will be when to schedule their tee times. the kings’ playoff hopes expired a week ago but the finality of an underachieving season hit them hard sunday after their 4-3 overtime loss to the ducks at honda center. while the ducks prepare to face the calgary flames, the kings will go through exit meetings with team executives and try to figure out where it all went wrong. “it sucks. that’s one thing we talked about after the game. brownie addressed it,” defenseman drew doughty said of forward dustin brown, whose leadership was still captain-like even th

kings kept to their game plan and, eventually, earned a win over the ducks


this was when the kings might have wavered, when they might have accepted defeat as readily and steadily as they did last season.down a goal to the ducks on saturday night with less than two minutes remaining in regulation time, with another loss all but sure to be strung onto a spiraling 1-6-1 slump, the kings could have abandoned the game plan that had brought them early-season success. they could have turned their backs on first-year coach john stevens and his insistence that they needed only to keep doing what they were doing and sharpen their execution.instead, they trusted him and each other enough to stay on a path that had become pitted and rocky but ultimately led them toward victory again.“i thought tonight was our best effort in terms of staying with our game plan throughout the

in case the crowd’s roar during the pregame introductions wasn’t a clear enough welcome-back message for kings goaltender jonathan quick after a 59-game absence, ducks winger corey perry was happy to provide him another welcome later in saturday’s game. perry’s version was of the rude variety, taking the form of a swift, nasty slash to quick’s leg during a goalmouth scramble during the third period.“didn’t take long,” quick said, with a half-smile.nor did it take long for quick, the backbone of the kings’ stanley cup championships in 2012 and 2014, to get into top form after returning from the groin injury he had sustained on opening night.quick’s contributions to the kings’ 4-1 victory at staples center on saturday went far beyond a 32-save performance that included 14 stops in the third
