Kings Vs Ducks

In a week where they badly needed to pick up some key victories the Los Angeles Kings are mired in perhaps their toughest stretch of the season, going winless over the past week to run their overall losing streak to five games. After losing consecutive road games in Boston and Columbus Los Angeles returned to Sourthern California and were swept in back-to-back games by their LA rivals, the league leading Anaheim Ducks. The second of the back-to-back contests was the much anticipated outdoor game at Dodger Stadium, taken by the Ducks 3-0.

Week Recap: Monday night the Kings lost a tough one in Boston to a solid Bruins team. Boston jumped on top 2-0 on first period goals by Brad Marchand and Torey Krug. The Kings fought back to tie the game on goals by Willie Mitchell and Jeff Carter, only to see Marchand score his second goal of the game just 18 seconds after Carter scored to tie the game at 2. The Bruins would hold on to the victory, and the Kings would go on to Columbus for the second half of a back-to-back. The Kings scored the first goal Tuesday night in Columbus on a tally by Dwight King only to see the Blue Jackets score consecutive first period goals by RJ Umberger and Ryan Johansen to go up 2-1. Jeff Carter notched his 20th goal of the season early in the second to tie the game at 2, but the Blue Jackets took control with three consecutive goals to put the game away. Martin Jones had a tough night in goal for the Kings. With three consecutive losses the Kings returned to Southern California for two with Anaheim. The Thursday and Saturday games were a big test and the chance for Los Angeles to make up ground on the NHL leaders. The two games, won by Anaheim via a combined score of 5-1 are an indication of just how strong of a club the Ducks have become. Anaheim is seemingly able to adapt to any opponents style, winning high scoring contests as well as gritty defensive games, like Thursday night at the Honda Center. The Kings were shut out Saturday night by the Ducks Jonas Hiller, putting the Ducks 19 points up on their division rivals.

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.
