Frederik Andersen will make a third consecutive start as Ducks' goalie Wednesday night, with Coach Bruce Boudreau saying he wants typical starter Jonas Hiller to get more rest as the Stanley Cup playoffs loom. “I was thinking [Hiller] was a little mentally tired coming back from the Olympics,” Boudreau said. “A good little rest of two or three games -- or even four -- might be apropos for him to get him back where he should be.” Hiller (29-11-7) won 14 consecutive games from Dec. 6 to Jan. 12, but is 6-6-3 since and gave up four goals on 23 shots Friday night in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers, when the Ducks had 48 of 51 shots stopped by Ben Scrivens.

In an agonizing overtime loss to the last-place Edmonton Oilers, Ducks star forward Corey Perry took seven shots, was around the net routinely and couldn't score a goal. "We've got to put those in … don't look for the easy outs," said Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau . "When he bears down on those, he usually scores. " Less than 24 hours later, with first place in the Pacific Division at hand against a Vancouver Canucks team clinging to playoff life, Perry bore down. He powered to the net again Saturday, took a Saku Koivu pass through traffic and banged at the puck until a clinching third-period goal seized the night.

EDMONTON, Canada - Traded Ducks goalie Viktor Fasth left Anaheim on March 4 in 82-degree weather, arriving at his new team's home with the thermometer at minus-13. That's minus-25 Celsius up here. "Here we go … ," Fasth said to himself, capping events that reveal how fast yesterday's rising star can transform into an expendable commodity. Fasth, 31, went from being goalie 1-A for the playoff-thinking Ducks (47-18-7) to sharing time in net with ex-King Ben Scrivens for the last-place Edmonton Oilers (25-39-9)

CALGARY, Canada -- Kings forward Jordan Nolan is facing potential supplementary discipline from the league for punching Oilers left wing Jesse Joensuu in the Kings' 4-2 win at Edmonton on Sunday night. The incident occurred late in the second period. Nolan received a double minor for roughing, and Joensuu went off for cross checking. With the Kings playing the Flames on Monday night, Nolan will have a phone hearing with the league today. It had been set for this morning but the league has had to make adjustments to its schedule because of the ongoing meetings in Boca Raton, Fla., with the general managers.

The Edmonton Oilers were in a quandary Wednesday. They had traded backup goalie Ilya Bryzgalov to Minnesota and newly acquired goalie Viktor Fasth had yet to arrive from the Ducks. That left them with just one goalie, Ben Scrivens, for practice. Unless they wanted to run Scrivens ragged, what to do? Place a call to Shannon Szabados, the goalie for Canada's women's hockey team, which just won a gold medal at the Sochi Games. "She's pretty good," Oilers right winger Jordan Eberle told Chris Purdy of the Canadian Press.

Depth has been a major reason the Ducks have the most points in the NHL, but as the playoffs near the emphasis has shifted to a tighter, tougher, more talented roster. Ducks General Manager Bob Murray thinned the forward ranks Tuesday by trading Dustin Penner to the Washington Capitals for a fourth-round pick, and sent that pick to Dallas for defenseman Stephane Robidas. Murray also resolved the goalie backlog by dealing Viktor Fasth to the Edmonton Oilers for a fifth-round draft pick this year and a third-round pick in 2015.

The bizarre mingled with the familiar Saturday night, when the sensory overload of seeing beach volleyball, street hockey and Frisbee tossing taking place amid Dodger Stadium's greenery was balanced by seven concise words that set a sellout crowd to roaring. "And now it's time," Vin Scully said, his voice vibrating as he paused for dramatic effect, "for NHL hockey!" And so it was, with Wayne Gretzky dropping the puck between the Kings and Ducks for the first NHL regular-season outdoor game played in California.

Faced with an oversupply of good goaltenders, the Kings on Wednesday traded Ben Scrivens to the Edmonton Oilers for a third-round pick in this year's entry draft. The move, announced after the team practiced at El Segundo, wasn't surprising because of Jonathan Quick's return to top form after a groin strain and the emergence of rookie Martin Jones as a capable NHL goalie. Jones was recalled from Manchester (N.H.) of the American Hockey League and was expected to meet the Kings in St. Louis for the start of their four-game trip.

Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the previous week: + Good to see the late Ruslan Salei elected to the International Ice Hockey Hall of Fame. The former Ducks defenseman played internationally for Belarus; he was killed in the Yaroslavl Lokomotiv plane crash in 2011. Retired Detroit Red Wings Steve Yzerman and Nicklas Lidstrom also were chosen, with Soviet-era Olympic champions Viacheslav Bykov and Andrei Khumotov. + Ed Jovanovski returned to Florida's lineup on Saturday, eight months after undergoing a relatively new procedure called hip resurfacing surgery.

Ben Lovejoy's life-changing week added another wrinkle Friday night, when he scored near-duplicate goals in a 2-minute 43-second span of the first period to pace the Ducks to a 5-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers. “I just tried to hit the net,” the defenseman said. “Two good shots, great feeling, great win. It's been an awesome couple of days, and I'd love to keep it going.” Lovejoy called Tuesday “an all-around amazing day,” when he witnessed the late-morning birth of his first child, daughter Lila, then contributed the defensive play of the night to help the Ducks beat San Jose.
