The game plan had been clear going into Thursday night's contest against the Los Angeles Kings, a big, physical team trying to avoid missing the playoffs a year after winning the Stanley Cup.

The Isles played one good period, the Kings played two. The New York Islanders extended their home winless streak to six games against a team that played like it had more on the line and had been through such situations before. Though the Isles had one lead and the score was tied for three-quarters...

Canucks top Kings in key Pacific Division contest Radim Vrbata set up the tying goal by Nick Bonino in the second period and scored the go-ahead goal during a 5-on-3 power play in the third Saturday to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 4-1 victory over the host Los Angeles Kings. With the victory, Vancouver maintained its hold on second place in the Pacific Division, extending its lead over third-place Calgary to three points and keeping the Kings in fourth place. “It was huge,” Canucks goalie Eddic Lack said. Blue Jackets 3, Flames 2: Rene Bourque scored his second goal of the game at...
Their loss of discipline was swift as the Kings unraveled in the third period against the Vancouver Canucks and just as quickly they lost ground in the Western Conference playoff race.
Whether you agreed with it, Southern Methodist Coach Larry Brown raised an interesting point about the goaltending call that gave UCLA a one-point win over his team Thursday.
Sami Vatanen kept insisting he was ready to return from the unspecified lower-body injury that sidelined him since Feb. 15 and help the Ducks.

The Wizard of Oz was a man who laughed in the face of death and sneered at doom, which is what the Vancouver Canucks were doing Friday when discussing their next opponent, the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings. The Canucks have not fared well against the champs this season. They have lost three straight, been outscored 12-3 and been outshot 96-54.

Four games or 15 games … it’s seemed like too long of an absence for both Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen and defenseman Sami Vatanen.
Barring any setback, Ducks defenseman Sami Vatanen will return to the team's lineup Friday night against the Colorado Avalanche.
This was at the other end of the spectrum from Monday’s often-boring contest against Arizona. A few takeaways from a game on Wednesday night at Honda Center, one certainly with the playoff vibe going from the start.
It started in November, when new Ducks’ addition Ryan Kesler entered the Kings’ rivalry with two goals and the deciding shootout goal to beat L.A. after Anaheim couldn’t do so in last season’s playoffs.
This was why the Ducks were so eager to acquire Ryan Kesler from Vancouver last season and pursued him again in June: to win games like their 3-2 overtime decision over the Kings on Wednesday and the other four games they won from the Kings in the rivals' season series.
The anointed difference-maker between last season's Ducks, who lost to the Kings in the playoffs, and this year's version is Anaheim center Ryan Kesler.
