VANCOUVER, Canada - There were fights. Thunderous hits. Superb goaltending. Fine penalty killing. A dramatic late rally. "There was a little bit of everything in it tonight," Kings forward Mike Richards said. And a lot of relief on the Kings' part Monday as they skated off with a 3-2 overtime victory over the Vancouver Canucks. GAME SUMMARY: Kings 3, Canucks 2 (OT) Despite being outplayed and outshot, 28-8, in the second and third periods combined, the Kings pulled even with 2 minutes and 54 seconds left in the third and stunned the crowd at Rogers Arena when Anze Kopitar rifled home a feed from Slava Voynov 48 seconds into overtime.

VANCOUVER, Canada - Anyone who saw John Tortorella's testy, 20-second news conferences when he coached the New York Rangers might have been shocked Monday when he conducted a cordial 20-minute session before the Canucks' morning skate at Rogers Arena. Tortorella scored a few mild jabs when asked about the lineup - a subject he has established as a no-go - but he was personable and thoughtful, as he has been since he was hired to coach the Canucks last summer. It's a deliberate difference from his rudeness in New York.

This post has been updated. See below for details. VANCOUVER, Canada -- Greetings from Vancouver, where it's chilly but sunny. The big news from the Kings' morning skate at Rogers Arena was that they planned to activate forward Jeff Carter off injured reserve before Monday night's game against the Canucks, and they will have Carter skate in the warmups with 12 other forwards. If all goes well, Carter -- who has been out of the lineup because of a foot injury -- would play for the first time since Oct. 30. Carter had five goals and nine points in 14 games before he was injured.

Take away their leading scorer and starting goalie, and the Ducks still win. Forced to adapt through a Sunday scratch of acknowledged leader Ryan Getzlaf (upper-body injury) and a last-minute illness to goalie Jonas Hiller, the Ducks weathered being outshot by Pacific Division rival Vancouver to win, 3-1, at Honda Center. "You've got to be ready when you're called upon to give the team a solid chance to win the game," said rookie goalie Frederik Andersen, who found out he was starting for Hiller 30 minutes before the game and stopped 35 shots to improve to 6-0. GAME SUMMARY: Ducks 5, Canucks 1 Owning the most points (31)

  Kings center Jarret Stoll skated hard for about an hour at practice Saturday morning, trying to rush back from an upper-body injury that has sidelined him a week. But given the way his replacements played in his absence Saturday night, Stoll might as well take his time. Linden Vey and Tyler Toffoli, minor league linemates called up Nov. 2 following injuries to Stoll and forward Jeff Carter, combined for two goals and two assists to spark the Kings to a surprisingly easy 5-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks.

The long-running goaltending saga in Vancouver came to a merciful, if not stunning, finish Sunday at the NHL's Entry Draft in Newark, N.J. It had looked as though goalie Roberto Luongo and his onerous contract would be moved out of Vancouver. Instead it was the younger and less expensive Cory Schneider going from the Canucks to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for the No. 9 pick. With that selection, the Canucks took forward Bo Horvat of the London Knights. So instead of succeeding Luongo in Vancouver, Schneider will be doing that with New Jersey incumbent Martin Brodeur, who turned 41 in May. Vancouver GM Mike Gillis said on TSN, a Canadian cable network, that this was the first time he had had this high of a draft choice in his tenure with the Canucks and that the team had explored various options during the goalie saga.

The Kings have granted other NHL teams permission to interview assistant coach John Stevens for their respective head coaching vacancies. The Vancouver Canucks appear to be the front-runner for Stevens, who was the Philadelphia Flyers' coach for parts of four seasons before he joined the Kings' staff in June 2010. He has spent the last three seasons guiding the Kings' highly regarded defense corps and strong penalty-killing unit. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter said Monday he considers Stevens "a head coach with us" because of the responsibilities Stevens has fulfilled.

Kings winger Jordan Nolan was fined $1,436.94 by the NHL on Sunday for cross-checking Henrik Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks during the teams' game Saturday at Staples Center, the league announced. It was the maximum fine allowed under the collective bargaining agreement between the NHL and the players' association. Nolan's hit on Sedin occurred at 5:58 of the second period and was not penalized at the time; however, the league can review any play for the purpose of dispensing supplementary discipline.
