Ducks & Rangers are LA Kings Top Tickets of the week

After a solid Christmas week that included home victories over St. Louis, Arizona and San Jose, the Los Angeles Kings had a tough swing through Canada, followed by a Saturday night home matchup at STAPLES Center versus the Nashville Predators. The Kings lost three of four during the week, including overtime losses to the Predators and Edmonton Oilers. The week ended with a wild lost to Nashville, 7-6 in overtime, following a ferocious comeback from the Kings to tie the game.

Week Recap: The Kings kicked off the week with a trip to Calgary to take on the Flames, falling behind 2-0 on two first period goals from the Calgary Flames, a minute apart from Curtis Glencross and Markus Granlund. Tyler Toffoli scored in the second period to pull within a goal, but the Kings were unable to get another shot past Flames goaltender Jonas Hiller. Following the loss in Calgary the Kings made the trip north to Edmonton to complete the Alberta back-to-back, losing 3-2 to the Oilers in a shootout. Like the night before the Kings fell behind 2-0, coming back with third period goals from Drew Doughty and Jake Muzzin to tie the game and send it to overtime and then the shootout. The Oilers would prevail in the shootout, ending a nine-game losing streak. The Kings would preserve an all important road point, setting up the opportunity to pick up a victory in Vancouver to complete the three-game road trip on a positive note. The Kings prevailed in Vancouver by a 3-2 score with Justin Williams and Jarret Stoll scoring late to give the Kings a come from behind win. The victory overshadowed the fact that the Kings fell behind 2-0 in for the third consecutive game, coming from behind once again. The Kings comeback gave them three points on the road trip and send them back to STAPLES Center for a Saturday night matchup with the Predators on a winning note. In one of the wildest games of the NHL season the Kings would score first and then give up five unanswered goals to the Predators, eventually falling behind 6-3 on an Ollie Jokinen goals mid-way through the third period. Amazingly the Kings would storm back and score three times in the final two minutes of regulation to tie the score at 6-6 and send the game into overtime. The Kings expended effort likely contributed to their sudden loss when the Predators scored just 18 seconds into overtime.

Up Next for the Kings: The Kings have three days off before they host the New York Rangers at STAPLES Center on Thursday in a Stanley Cup rematch. The Kings defeated the Rangers in six games last summer to win their second Stanley Cup title in three seasons. The Kings complete the week with another game at STAPLES Center on Saturday, January 10 when they host the Winnipeg Jets.

Where They Stand: With 47 points the Kings are in 5th place in the Western Conference, tied with the Vancouver Canucks. They are eleven points behind the Anaheim Ducks, who lead both the Western Conference and the Pacific Division.

Rangers & Jets Top Ducks Tickets Of The Week

After dropping their first game of the week to the San Jose Sharks, the Anaheim Ducks rallied back and won consecutive games over two solid teams, defeating the St. Louis Blues and Nashville Predators by identical 4-3 scores. With another successful week the Ducks extended their lead in the Pacific Division and the Western Conference.

Week Recap: The Ducks hosted the San Jose Sharks on New Year’s Eve at Honda Center, losing 3-0 behind a shutout from Sharks goaltender Antti Niemi, his third of the season. Joe Pavelski scored twice for the Sharks, his 18th and 19th goals of the season. Corey Perry returned to the Ducks lineup but, like the rest of the Ducks, was unable to find the back of the net. After a day off on Thursday the Sharks hosted the St. Louis Blues on Friday night, winning 4-3 in a hard fought game. Ryan Getzlaf, Kyle Palmieri, Andrew Cogliano and Matt Beleskey scored for the Ducks, with Beleskey picking up his team leading 16th of the season. It was the 16th victory by just a goal in the last 18 Anaheim wins. The Ducks continued their homestand on Sunday night when they hosted the Nashville Predators. Nashville was coming off of a wild 7-6 overtime victory over the Los Angeles Kings the night before. Matt Beleskey opened the scoring for Anaheim with his 17th goal of the season in the first period, with Corey Perry notching his 15th goal in the second period in his third game back from injury. The Predators would go up 3-2 before Francois Beauchemin scored his second goal of the season to tie the game at three. The game would go into overtime with the Ducks eventually prevailing in the shootout on goals by Jakob Silfverberg and Ryan Kesler. Frederik Andersen made 27 saves to earn the victory in goal. The Danish goaltender now has 21 victories on the season.

Up Next for the Ducks: The Ducks have a busy upcoming week with home games versus the New York Rangers, Winnipeg Jets, Toronto Maple Leafs and New Jersey Devils. The culmination of the 8-game home stand is a prime opportunity to gain additional ground in both the division and the Western Conference. If the season ended today the Maple Leafs, Rangers and Jets are all in solid playoff positioning, with the Jets off to their best start since the franchise relocated to Winnipeg in 2010.
