"When you get slashed . . . and they don't call it, it's frustrating," said Forsberg, who took two penalties, including a first-period roughing call that the Kings turned into a power-play goal and their first score in a 3-2 victory at Staples Center. "That's great, when he pays more attention to me than to his game," Tuomainen said.

The Ducks are one of several teams that have had contact with the Philadelphia Flyers about acquiring center Peter Forsberg if the Flyers decide to put him on the block before the Feb. 27 trade deadline. Philadelphia has a league-worst 12-32-5 record and Forsberg, who turns 34 in July, has been the subject of trade talk most of this season. The Ducks are closely monitoring his availability, according to a source.
