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.

CALGARY, Canada - Kings forward Jordan Nolan will miss Monday night's game against the Flames because of a one-game suspension from the NHL for punching Edmonton Oilers left wing Jesse Joensuu. The incident occurred near the end of the second period in the Kings' 4-2 victory over the Oilers in Edmonton on Sunday night. Nolan had a telephone hearing this morning with the league's department of player safety. He will be eligible to return Thursday against the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs.

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.

EDMONTON, Canada - Goalie Ben Scrivens knew he would have to worry about the usual suspects among his former Kings teammates. Of course, there was leading scorer Jeff Carter and the two-way brilliance of center Anze Kopitar. Then there was the man who came to dinner: Kings defenseman Alec Martinez. Martinez put the Kings ahead for good in their 4-2 victory against the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night at Rexall Place. Carter scored twice, his 23rd and 24th goals of the season. His first goal went off the left skate of Edmonton defenseman Philip Larsen, just 1 minute 36 seconds into the game, and Carter's other goal glanced off his own skate, giving the Kings a 3-1 lead at 10:16 of the second period.

The coach who banned the E-word slipped up Friday night. He used it himself. Repeatedly. But Mighty Duck Coach Ron Wilson might not mind paying the team fines for uttering the word expansion --and they'll be increased because his faux pas appeared in print. His Ducks reached an expansion milestone Friday by winning for the 32nd time this season. Their 3-1 victory over Edmonton in front of 15,701 at Northlands Coliseum tied the NHL record for victories by a first-year team.

UFC women's champion Ronda Rousey, the biggest active star in MMA, could put an end to Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s unbeaten streak. During an interview on Power 106 FM, Rousey was asked what her game plan would be if the battle of unbeaten fighters ever took place. “I would drop down to the ground and crawl over to him as fast as I can,” Rousey said. “I wouldn't even stand up, I wouldn't be near him. I would just do a little army crawl over there and he would have to run away.

The Kings on Wednesday traded backup goaltender Ben Scrivens to the Edmonton Oilers for a third-round pick in this year's entry draft, loosening up their goaltending logjam. Martin Jones was recalled from the Kings' Manchester (N.H.) affiliate and was scheduled to meet the team in St. Louis to serve as Jonathan Quick's backup on the upcoming four-game trip. Scrivens, acquired by the Kings from Toronto last summer, is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent next summer, and the Kings' goaltending depth means he wasn't part of their long-term plans.

The Martin Jones Era has been so blissfully straightforward. Six starts. Six wins. Three shutouts.

+ A key to the early success of the Phoenix Coyotes (10-3-2) is the production they are getting from their defense. Oliver Ekman-Larsson (three goals, 11 points), Keith Yandle (1-10 - 11) and Derek Morris (4-6 - 10) ranked 4-5-6 in defensemen scoring through Sunday's games. + Welcome back Manny Malhotra, who returned to the NHL last Friday with the Carolina Hurricanes. The classy forward suffered a devastating eye injury in 2011 while with the Vancouver Canucks; fearing his impaired vision jeopardized his safety, they played him in only nine games last season and didn't re-sign him. He won 15 of 20 faceoffs in his first game back and 10 of 14 in his second.

Let's take a skate down memory lane and into the Los Angeles Times' archives in honor of Friday being the 25th anniversary of the Kings' acquisition of Wayne Gretzky, a trade that changed the fortunes of the Kings and the NHL. The Times' Lisa Dillman wrote a fine story that quoted the principal players on their thoughts about the deal, with the benefit of a quarter-century's hindsight. There really was no way to anticipate the effect Gretzky's arrival would have on the NHL - think Sunbelt expansion - and also on youth hockey in Southern California , which is now regularly sending players to major college hockey programs, the Canadian junior ranks and to the NHL. Rumors that Gretzky might be traded by the Edmonton Oilers had circulated for weeks before the deal, though both sides denied that a trade was imminent less than a week before it was done, as cited here.
