After a crazy game, here's a crazy thought: Maybe the Ducks can get through all this injury trouble after all. They took a 5-4 victory over Buffalo on Tuesday, beating one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference for their eighth win in a row at the Honda Center and their seventh in their last eight games overall. They made it harder than it had to be, taking a 4-0 lead in the first 10 1/2 minutes only to watch it nearly evaporate, but they did it. "Tonight wasn't the prettiest effort throughout the whole game, but we were able to get that early lead and hold it," said center Ryan Getzlaf, who returned to the game despite a nasty gash over his right eye that required stitches after he was hit by a puck.

Once again veering off in opposite directions, the Kings and Ducks reversed course Thursday in a game that could have significant playoff implications. The Kings halted a three-game losing streak that had dropped them out of the top eight in the West for the first time since Oct. 21, recording an emphatic 4-0 victory at Staples Center while ending the Ducks' five-game winning streak and damaging their faint playoff hopes. Jonathan Quick stopped 22 shots to earn his fifth career shutout and first this season.

The timetable for Ducks forward Teemu Selanne's return after surgery to repair two broken bones in his jaw is two to six weeks, the Ducks announced Thursday. That leaves his fifth Olympics appearance for Finland in question, but still a possibility. Finland's first game in Vancouver is Feb. 17 against Belarus -- five weeks from the date of Selanne's injury. The Ducks have 14 games remaining before the Olympic break, and won't play after that until March 3, seven weeks after Selanne's injury.

As breaks of the game go, this was a bad one. The Ducks' Teemu Selanne, freshly returned from a broken hand, suffered a broken jaw when he was struck by a puck in the third period of the Ducks' 4-3 victory over Boston on Wednesday at the Honda Center. "Obviously, he will be unavailable to us for a number of days, weeks, here going forward," Coach Randy Carlyle said. "We'll have to see -- it will be surgically repaired tomorrow -- we'll have to see what kind of time frame they're going to give us."

The Kings and Ducks always seem to be at opposite ends of competitive cycles, perhaps explaining why they have never made the playoffs in the same season since the Ducks entered the NHL in 1993. As they prepared for their second meeting of the season, Thursday at Staples Center, they were again on opposite paths. The Kings, after an impressive start, have lost three straight games and seven of their last 10 and are in danger of dropping out of the top eight in the West. The Ducks, thin on defense and plagued by injuries, have been following their post-lockout pattern of gathering strength in the second half of the season, cutting in half what was once a 12-point gap between them and the last playoff spot.
