Kings grab opener from Canucks

Los Angeles 4, Vancouver 2

We have Kings Vs Canucks Tickets in stock for the Friday night battle at Rogers Arena as well as Sunday at the Staples Center.

KINGS 4, CANUCKS 2: Dustin Penner snapped a tie with 3:14 remaining in the third period as visiting Los Angeles upset the Presidents’ Trophy winners in the opener of their Western Conference quarterfinal series.

Mike Richards recorded a goal and two assists, defenseman Willie Mitchell and captain Dustin Brown also scored and Jonathan Quick made 24 saves for the Kings, who outshot the Canucks 39-26.

Richards caused a turnover in the offensive zone and made a pass from the top of the left faceoff circle to Jeff Carter, who directed the puck across the slot with his skate. Penner quickly fired the puck past Roberto Luongo to give Los Angeles a 3-2 edge.

Brown sealed the victory with an empty-netter with 18 seconds remaining.

With Daniel Sedin sitting out his 10th straight game with a concussion, the Vancouver Canucks got on the board 4:17 into the first period on a questionable goal by Alex Burrows.

Burrows grabbed his own rebound in the high slot and fired it past Quick, who was knocked down moments earlier by Ryan Kesler. Quick’s protest fell on deaf ears, however, as Burrows was awarded his 17th career playoff goal.

Los Angeles answered during the first of its two 5-on-3 advantages in the session as Richards banked a shot from the bottom of the right faceoff circle off Luongo with 6 1/2 minutes remaining.

Former Canuck Mitchell gave the Kings a 2-1 lead with 3:27 left in the second when his blast from the left point deflected off Jannik Hansen’s stick and past Luongo with 39 seconds to go on Byron Bitz’s five-minute major for boarding.

Canucks blue-liner Alex Edler evened the contest with 7.3 seconds remaining in the second as his wrist shot from the right point hit a defender’s stick and sailed over Quick.

Kesler notched two assists and Luongo stopped 35 shots for the Canucks, who lost for the first time in nine playoff series openers.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Carter returned to the Kings’ lineup from an ankle injury and recorded a pair of assists. … Los Angeles defenseman Drew Doughty led all players with 28:18 of ice time. … Vancouver lost for only the second time with Sedin out of the lineup. … The Kings have won only four of their last 12 visits to Rogers Arena.

THE STORY: The status of Daniel Sedin remains the burning topic surrounding the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Vancouver Canucks as they begin their Western Conference quarterfinal series against the Los Angeles Kings. The 2011 Art Ross Trophy winner missed Vancouver’s last nine regular-season games with a concussion but joined the team for practice on Monday. However, Sedin skated with the Canucks’ extras and other injured players following Tuesday’s practice, leaving his status for Game One up in the air.

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, RDS, KCOP-13 (Los Angeles)

ABOUT THE LA KINGS (40-27-15): Los Angeles also hopes to have one of its ailing stars ready for the series opener as Jeff Carter practiced with the club for the second straight day on Tuesday as he recovers from an ankle injury. “I feel like I’m getting better and I feel like I can contribute,” Carter said. The Kings will be without Brad Richardson, as the center underwent an emergency appendectomy Tuesday night and is out indefinitely. “We won’t have him for a while,” coach Darryl Sutter said. Andrei Loktionov was recalled from Manchester of the American Hockey League to replace Richardson on the roster. Los Angeles has the upper hand in goal as Jonathan Quick led the league with 10 shutouts, finished second with a 1.95 goals-against average and was fifth in both victories (35) and save percentage (.929).

ABOUT THE CANUCKS (51-22-9): Coach Alain Vigneault refused to tip his hand regarding Sedin’s availability for the series opener. “It’s a unique injury and he will continue the protocol, and when he’s ready to play, he’ll address (the media),” Vigneault said. Vancouver went 8-1-0 after Sedin went down with a concussion but was just 4 for 39 on the power play in his absence. Although Roberto Luongo will start Game One, the Canucks’ stronger goaltender this season was backup Cory Schneider, who was second in the league with a .937 save percentage and third with a 1.96 GAA. Rookie Zack Kassian is hoping to be in the lineup after missing the final two regular-season contests with an upper-body injury. “I’m going to talk to the trainers, and they have the final say,” he said.

OVERTIME:

1. The Kings have lost eight of their last 11 visits to Rogers Arena.

2. The teams split their four regular-season meetings and combined for a total of 15 goals, with half of Los Angeles’ eight tallies coming in one game.

3. Vancouver has won eight consecutive series openers overall and 10 straight at home.

PREDICTION: Kings 3, Canucks 1.

Sharks take a bite out of Kings

San Jose 3, Los Angeles 2

SHARKS 3, KINGS 2 (OT): Dan Boyle scored twice, including the game winner 3:58 into overtime, as San Jose beat Los Angeles to set up a first-round playoff matchup with St. Louis.

With the extra session winding down, Boyle finished off an odd-man rush with a high backhander that beat Kings netminder Jonathan Quick as the Sharks completed a comeback from a two-goal third-period deficit. The thrilling victory moved San Jose into seventh place in the Western Conference, matching them up with the second-seeded Blues in the opening round.

The Kings wound up eighth in the conference and will face the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Vancouver Canucks in round one.

Justin Williams put the Kings on the board 11:09 into the opening period, connecting on a Los Angeles power play for his third goal in the back-to-back series against the Sharks.

San Jose lost sniper Joe Pavelski later in the period after he was hit in the face with the puck. He scurried off the ice but returned after being stitched up.

With the score still 1-0 late in the second period, the game took a chippy turn when the Kings’ Mike Richards was given a two-minute boarding minor after drilling Sharks forward Logan Couture into the boards. Richards provided more ire for Sharks fans less than 40 seconds after leaving the penalty box, banging home a rebound of a Williams shot with the Kings enjoying a man advantage.

Couture earned his revenge on the scoresheet, assisting on San Jose’s two third-period goals. Boyle cut into the lead 35 seconds into the frame, blasting a shot past Kings netminder Jonathan Quick.

Patrick Marleau brought the fans out of their seats less than eight minutes later, firing a shot that hit someone in front of the goal and eluded Quick for his 30th goal of the campaign. The Sharks veteran reached the 30-goal plateau for the fourth straight seasons.

San Jose had a golden opportunity to end the game late in regulation, but Pavelski rang a shot off the post.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Marleau’s milestone tally gave the Sharks three 30-goal scorers for the first time in franchise history. Couture and Pavelski share the team lead with 31 goals apiece. … Fifteen of Marleau’s goals have come in the third period. … San Jose failed to win the Pacific Division title for the first time in six seasons. The Phoenix Coyotes clinched their first division crown in franchise history with a 4-1 victory in Minnesota earlier Saturday. … Three of the eight West playoff teams come from the Pacific, with four more emerging from the Central and only one – division-champion Vancouver – based out of the Northwest.

Sharks Vs Kings Tickets have sold out for this huge game.

THE STORY: The final game of the NHL‘s regular season will determine the complexion of the Western Conference postseason picture. The San Jose Sharks entertain Los Angeles on Saturday night in a contest that could see either team capture the Pacific Division title. The winning team will wind up with 96 points, which will be good enough for the division crown if the Phoenix Coyotes lose in Minnesota. The losing team is assured an eighth-place finish.

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, NHL Network, KCOP

ABOUT THE KINGS (40-27-14): Los Angeles squandered a chance to gain the upper hand on their geographical rivals in the opener of their home-and-home series, dropping a controversial 6-5 shootout decision Thursday night. The Kings were incensed when Sharks forward Ryane Clowe interfered with the play while on the bench, poking his stick out to break up a play in the neutral zone. The officials didn’t see the play, and no penalty was called.

ABOUT THE SHARKS (42-29-10): Clowe’s bizarre move – one he claims he doesn’t remember doing – has overshadowed what has been a solid stretch of hockey for the 29-year-old Newfoundland native. Clowe had a down year – recording 20 fewer points than a season ago – but has scored four goals over his last six games while remaining as truculent as ever. San Jose is seeking a fifth straight division crown.

OVERTIME:

1. San Jose owns a 3-2 edge in the season series, with two of those wins coming in a shootout.

2. The Sharks have won 22 of their last 32 home encounters with the Kings.

3. The Kings’ last division championship came in 1990-91, when the club played in the Smythe Division.

PREDICTION: Sharks 4, Kings 3.

ABOUT THE OILERS (32-38-9): Edmonton continues to collect points away from home. Teemu Hartikainen scored his first two goals of the season as the Oilers improved to 5-0-2 in their last seven road matches with a 2-1 victory over Anaheim on Sunday. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins notched an assist for his 51st point, tying him with Colorado’s Gabriel Landeskog for the rookie scoring lead. The top overall pick of the 2011 draft, Nugent-Hopkins also had an assist in Friday’s 4-1 loss to Los Angeles. Devan Dubnyk, who has won four of his last five starts, turned aside 20 shots in a 2-1 win over the Kings on Jan. 15.

ABOUT THE KINGS (39-27-13): Brad Richardson is filling in admirably for Jeff Carter, who is nursing an ankle injury. Richardson tallied twice and captain Dustin Brown also scored in Los Angeles’ 4-3 shootout loss to Minnesota on Saturday. Anze Kopitar, who has collected 21 points in his last 17 games, recorded a goal and an assist on Friday. All-Star Jonathan Quick sat out versus Minnesota, but turned aside 13 of 14 shots Friday to improve to 6-1-3 in his career versus Edmonton.

OVERTIME:

1. Although its record leaves a bit to be desired, Edmonton has given Los Angeles a tough go of it this season. The Oilers have won two of the three meetings.

2. The Kings won’t have to leave the Golden State in their final three games. After hosting Edmonton, Los Angeles will tangle with San Jose in a home-and-home series.

Los Angeles Kings 2012 Playoffs?

With 5 games remaining in the regular season for the Los Angeles Kings, the playoff race is as tight as ever and every point is incredibly valuable. Right now the race in the Pacific division for the division crown is between 4 different teams. The Dallas Stars with 89 points, the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks with 88 points, and the Phoenix Coyotes with 87 points. Currently it appears 3 of these 4 teams will make the playoffs with 1 of them earning the 3 seed and home ice advantage in the first round thanks to winning the division.

The Kings have a very favorable schedule in the home stretch as they face cellar dwellers Edmonton Oilers, Minnesota Wild, and Edmonton again before taking on the Sharks in their final 2 games of the season. The Sharks will finish off the season playing only division rivals as they will face the Phoenix Coyotes once and Dallas Stars and Los Angeles Kings twice which should help create some parity in points in the division. The Dallas Stars have a very tough schedule as they will face division leaders Vancouver and St. Louis before the season ends and Phoenix also has to face the St. Louis Blues once before the season ends. The Kings definitely do have the schedule on their side to close out the season and should be able to make it into the playoffs. The question is will it be as a 3, 7, or 8 seed. If the Kings miss out on the playoffs however, they will nobody to blame but themselves.

He’ll become the 277th player – and 91st defenseman – to reach the milestone. “I’ve thought about it a little bit lately,” Chara said. “But I’m trying not to think about it too much because this is an important game for us.”

ABOUT THE KINGS (37-25-12): Los Angeles is 3-0-0 on its four-game homestand. The team is 10-3-0 since the addition of Jeff Carter, who has six goals and nine points with the Kings. Others benefiting from his presence are Anze Kopitar and captain Dustin Brown. Kopitar has recorded a point is 10 of 12 contests while Brown has gotten on the scoresheet in 11 of 13.
