Update: The Kings' four-game winning streak ended Wednesday in their 2-1 shootout loss at San Jose, but they have earned points in five straight games. Anze Kopitar's scoring streak ended at six games, but he still leads the NHL with 21 points. The Canucks absorbed a setback Wednesday when goaltender Roberto Luongo was found to have a fractured rib. He's expected to be out for a week. Backup Andrew Raycroft is expected to start tonight. Center Ryan Johnson won't play as a precaution after he fell and crashed headfirst into the boards and was briefly knocked out Tuesday.
