Flipping through the channels tonight trying to find the Mighty Duck-King game? Good luck. For the first time since the Ducks began playing 11 seasons ago, a Duck-King game won't be on television, breaking a string of 56 televised games between the local rivals. On an unusually busy Wednesday night, the Lakers and Seattle SuperSonics are on Fox Sports Net, and the UCLA-USC men's basketball game is on Fox Sports Net 2.

Maybe it was because it was a special day, the day school pictures were being taken. It was that day when a youngster chooses the face he wants to show the world. Or maybe it was just because you could pick any day of the week, and Teemu Selanne likely as not would be wearing that jersey. Edmonton Oilers, with No. 17 stitched on the back.

Chris Kunitz scored two goals Saturday, pushing the Mighty Ducks closer to clinching a Stanley Cup playoff spot, and was all grins in the upbeat dressing room afterward. The Kings' Sean Avery didn't get off the bench in the third period, then was nowhere to be seen in the grim postgame scene. That summed up both teams' moods after a 4-2 Duck victory at Staples Center. The Ducks were in a dressing room with a playoff view.

Desperate Mighty Duck fans were waving their giveaway towels in a furious fashion early and often Saturday night, imploring their team to turn its fortunes in the Stanley Cup finals while transforming the Pond into a swirling sea of white. Except for one seat -- in section 206, Row R. Dalia Gomez stood defiantly and pulled out her own rally rag, a red number emblazoned with the New Jersey logo, and went to work when her son, Devil center Scott Gomez, took the ice.

The Mighty Ducks may have found their power play ... hiding among their penalty killers. The Minnesota Wild was left looking for new weapons ... after the verbal stinger it tossed at goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere, contending his pads were illegal, was no more effective than any of its shots. The Ducks won by more than one goal for the first time in the playoffs ... inching closer to their first Stanley Cup final.

The Mighty Ducks have been trying to earn a playoff spot with a defense that isn't quite major league, so General Manager Jack Ferreira moved to shore it up Friday by acquiring veteran defenseman J.J. Daigneault from Pittsburgh for winger Garry Valk. The Ducks have played with only two veteran defensemen and as many as three rookies after recent injuries to Dave Karpa and Ken Baumgartner--and their defense was shallow to begin with.

Tom Kurvers has worn the uniforms of seven NHL teams, but now he spends most game nights in different attire--a coat and tie. He has played in only two games in the past month, and Mighty Duck Coach Ron Wilson has scratched the defenseman from the lineup 10 times in the last 11 games. After nearly 11 seasons in the NHL, Kurvers, 32, is out of the picture with the Ducks.
