PHILADELPHIA - If Flyers fans booed every time Jeff Carter touched the puck Monday, it must have sounded like music to his ears. With extra zip in his step if not revenge in his heart for the acrimonious end to his tenure with the Flyers, Carter scored the Kings' first goal in his first game back at the Wells Fargo Center. Another former Flyer longer removed, Justin Williams, scored the second goal of the Kings' eventual 3-2 victory. "There's an added incentive any time you play your former team, especially the way things ended here," Williams said of Carter, who didn't speak to the media after the game.

The Ducks are just five games away from the playoffs. A three-game losing streak with a four-game trip to Canada starting Friday does not qualify as momentum. Wednesday, the playoff-motivated Columbus Blue Jackets beat the playoff-qualified Ducks, 3-2, in overtime at Honda Center, heightening the home team's angst over how prepared it is for the postseason. BOX SCORE: Columbus 3, Ducks 2 (OT) "We're not playing complete," Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said.

WINNIPEG, Canada -- Kings forward Jeff Carter was once the new kid in town, attempting to fit in with a tight group late in the term. Big transitions, in life and work, aren't always seamless. And so, Carter fully sympathized with new teammate, winger Marian Gaborik, who was acquired Wednesday from Columbus. Gaborik had a long travel day, getting routed through Toronto, before he joined the team in Winnipeg late that night and made his Kings' debut Thursday. For Gaborik, there were moments of tentativeness and other spells of chemistry with new linemates Anze Kopitar and forward Justin Williams in a 3-1 victory over the Jets.

It said something about the Ducks' state, and the downward spiral of their game, that one of the bigger cheers came when the outcome of a game in St. Louis flashed on the scoreboard in the third period. The Kings lost by a goal. And not much later, so did the Ducks, blowing a third-period lead and wasting a vintage performance from Teemu Selanne, who scored twice. Misery loves company, and there is plenty to go around in a cratering season of futility as the Columbus Blue Jackets, last in the league, beat the Ducks, 3-2, in overtime on Friday night at Honda Center.

The Kings honored their six Olympians on Thursday, inviting them to take one more trip around the Staples Center ice before leaving for Sochi and next week's tournament. But all six had to put in a little extra work on their way out the door. And that led to a nice parting gift, with defenseman Robyn Regehr scoring in overtime to end a four-game losing streak and give the Kings a 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. Regehr's goal, on a rising shot from just off the left circle at 2 minutes 33 seconds, also gave the Kings their fourth win in six overtime periods this season.

The Columbus Blue Jackets fired Dave King on Tuesday, severing ties with the only coach the team has had since entering the league in 2000. At 14-20-4-2, the Blue Jackets have the second-worst record in the Western Conference. King was in the last year of a three-year contract. President and General Manager Doug MacLean will be the team's interim coach. * Minnesota Wild goaltender Manny Fernandez is expected to sit out a month because of a sprained left knee....

The Kings went back to one of their favorite trading partners -- the Columbus Blue Jackets - and acquired flashy forward Marian Gaborik on Wednesday for forward Matt Frattin and some conditional draft picks. Columbus is keeping about 50% of Gaborik's salary. It was the biggest move for the surging Kings, who have won five straight games, on what has been a hectic trade-deadline day. They are obviously hoping the same circumstances are triggered after a deal with the Blue Jackets, the way it unfolded after they traded for Jeff Carter two years ago. That was the biggest and final piece of the Kings' Stanley Cup winning team in 2012.

Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews scored twice in the third period and added an assist as Chicago rallied to sweep a home-and-home series against the Columbus Blue Jackets with a 6-5 victory Saturday. Andrew Ladd, Marian Hossa and Troy Brower each had a goal and an assist, and Ben Eager also scored for Chicago, which is tied with San Jose for the most points in the league (70). Patrick Kane added three assists and Patrick Sharp two assists for the Blackhawks, playing the first of a season-high eight-game, 15-day trip.

Branko Radivojevic scored midway through the third period -- his third goal in five games -- and the Phoenix Coyotes rallied to tie the Columbus Blue Jackets, 3-3, Monday night at Phoenix. Marc Denis made 20 of his 38 saves in the third period and in overtime for Columbus, which was outshot, 41-22. The game was played in front of 9,639, the smallest home crowd for the Coyotes since the franchise moved from Winnipeg in 1996.

It took several years and a stop in New York and a more recent move to Columbus, but Marian Gaborik finally became a Los Angeles King. Gaborik was interested in the Kings a long time ago, and Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi had toyed with the idea of bringing in the forward with game-breaking potential. Timing is everything and it all finally came together shortly before Wednesday's trade deadline. Lombardi acquired Gaborik from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for underperforming forward Matt Frattin and conditional draft picks.

To add the scoring threat he felt the Kings urgently needed and stay under the salary-cap limit, General Manager Dean Lombardi had to persuade the Columbus Blue Jackets to retain half of winger Marian Gaborik's remaining salary this season, give up winger Matt Frattin and two draft picks, and still had to demote forward Linden Vey to Manchester (N.H.) of the American Hockey League. All of which is fine. When not injured, Gaborik is a pure scorer who brings speed and commands attention from opponents.

  The Ducks continued to stagger toward the Olympic break Monday night at Honda Center, where their recent flaws again were on display in a 4-2 loss to Columbus. In the same place where they started the season 20-0-2, the Ducks lost for the fourth time in five home games. Overall, they have lost three of their last four and are 4-5 in the nine games since their 18-1 surge ended in mid-January. They again fell behind in the first period, again committed penalties that led to power-play goals and again looked like they can't wait to reach the three-week rest from NHL action that begins after Saturday's game at Nashville.

Columbus Blue Jackets center Brandon Dubinsky will not be fined or suspended following his Sunday night ejection for a big hit on Ducks veteran center Saku Koivu. Columbus General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen told the Columbus Dispatch on Monday that NHL Player Safety informed him there would be no in-person hearing for Dubinsky, who was given a five-minute major penalty for interference and a game misconduct for the second-period hit on Koivu. Koivu had to be helped from the ice and didn't return.

The 13-year-old girl hit by a puck at an NHL game died from a rare injury to an artery that was damaged when her head snapped back, a coroner said Wednesday. Brittanie Cecil died Monday, two days after she was struck in the forehead by the puck at a game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Calgary Flames. The damage to the artery, which runs from the spine to the back of the brain, led to a "vicious cycle" of clotting in the artery and swelling of the brain, said Franklin County Coroner Brad Lewis, who performed the autopsy.

One disgruntled forward and one desperate team. That perfect hockey storm resulted in the struggling Kings' acquiring center Jeff Carter from the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday in exchange for defenseman Jack Johnson and a first-round draft choice in 2012 or 2013. If the Kings do not make the playoffs this season, the pick slides to next year. The deal reunites the 27-year-old Carter, a former 46-goal scorer, with Mike Richards, his close friend and former teammate in Philadelphia.

Tom Lasorda, legendary former Dodgers manager, always had quite the competitive streak, and it showed Thursday night when he dropped the ceremonial puck before the Kings played the Columbus Blue Jackets. Lasorda, as you can see in the video above, walked the carpet from the edge of the rink to center ice where Kings captain Dustin Brown and former King and Blue Jackets assistant captain Jack Johnson waited for him. The man who bleeds blue never made eye contact with Johnson, said a few words to Brown and then dropped the puck, which Brown collected.
