As much as Jonas Hiller and Viktor Fasth keep things friendly sitting next to each other in the Ducks' dressing room, each goaltender works fervently on the ice to take away the other's playing time. Last season, Fasth, in his rookie campaign, matched Hiller's regular-season victory total (15) and was given the nod to start the season opener. If Hiller felt his job security threatened after playing in 73 of 82 games in 2011-12, he was right. But after the announcement Friday that Fasth had suffered a lower-body injury, Hiller stiffened to stop Phoenix's Shane Doan on a final shootout try to secure the Ducks' sixth consecutive victory, 3-2. Fasth's injury will keep him out of Sunday's game at Honda Center against the Dallas Stars.

Staged in the center of the outdoor mall's park area, where the Christmas tree sits each holiday season, the event showcased eight designers.

Kenan Thompson is fed up with having to wear a dress on "Saturday Night Live. " A 10-year veteran of NBC's sketch comedy show, Thompson has donned drag to play characters such as Maya Angelou, Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey. And it's not just because he thinks he looks good in a skirt. The current incarnation of "SNL" has no black female cast members - a lack of diverstiy that another cast member, Jay Pharoah, has already complained about this season. So guys have had to step in to the high heels.

The Bohemian Society presented its Spring 2014 collection last Thursday as part of the Los Angeles Fashion Council's Grove-hosted fashion showcase. The inspiration: Designer Victor Wilde offered a single sentence as his Spring 2014 manifesto: "O.W.N. - Own Won Now - Live for the moment. Forget winning, you've won. " The look: While the brand's familiar repurposed military vibe - parachute fabrics, cargo pocketed pants and the like - was still very much present, the line seems to be continuing its move away from one-off statement pieces and into the realm of more easily produced cut-and-sew garments.

PARIS - Step-dancing hijinks, jungles of flowers and enough art world inspiration to fill a Chanel-branded gallery. The spring 2014 collections shown at Paris Fashion Week this fall were entertaining, to say the least. And between philosophical discussions about how best to reinvent old brands for the 21st century, whether what's on the runway should be transporting or merely commercial, and what is going to happen to Louis Vuitton now that artistic director Marc Jacobs has left (Nicolas Ghesquière, late of Balenciaga, is poised to take the helm, rumors say)
