The Week Ahead

Wednesday, at Mighty Ducks, 7:30 p.m., Fox Sports Net 2 -- The Kings may have dominated the Ducks lately, but it hasn't been easy. Los Angeles had to come from behind to win, 5-4, at Staples Center last month and tied Anaheim, 2-2, at the Pond in November. The only game the Kings dominated was when they defeated the Ducks, 4-2, at the Pond the first month of the season.

Thursday, Minnesota, 7:30 p.m., Fox Sports Net 2 -- If the Kings are to make the playoffs, one of the teams they may have to catch is the Wild. After a fast start, Minnesota has dropped in the standings but the Wild got off to a good start on its current trip with a 2-1 overtime victory over the Ducks on Monday.

Saturday, New Jersey, 7:30 p.m., Fox Sports Net -- This will be the only time the two teams will meet this season as the Kings look to defeat the Devils at home for the first time since Nov. 29, 1997. Forward Patrik Elias leads New Jersey in goals and points.

Monday, San Jose, 7:30 p.m., Fox Sports Net -- This will be the final game of a three-game homestand and the first of consecutive games against the Sharks, who will play host to the Kings on Jan. 28. The Kings beat visiting San Jose, 3-2, last week. The Sharks won at San Jose, 5-2, in November.
