A trompe l'oeil photograph may seem like an oxymoron - photographs are constantly fooling the eye with their verisimilitude. Yet in his exhibition at Luis De Jesus, L.A. artist Chris Engman has managed to create photographic images that evoke this playful artistic tradition while examining the mechanisms of their own presentation. They engage in a kind of generative navel-gazing: Photography has caught itself looking. At a minimum, the photos are neat tricks. “Surface” looks like a frame filled with shredded paper but is actually a photograph of the same.

Familiar problems resurfaced Thursday for the Dodgers and their manager. Brian Wilson again didn't resemble the pitcher he was last season, as he was charged with four runs in the ninth inning of a 7-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. There were problems aside from the continued instability of Wilson, who has already spent 15 days sidelined because of issues with his surgically repaired elbow. BOX SCORE: Philadelphia 7, Dodgers 3 The Dodgers made another costly error, this time in the form of a routine bouncer hitting first baseman Adrian Gonzalez's glove and dribbling into the outfield.

Their big guys played big, the leaders led by fearless example, and the Kings, on the brink of going home for the summer, got the result they so urgently needed, a 6-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday at Staples Center that extended their season by at least one more game. "We're alive," said winger Marian Gaborik, who played a huge part in resuscitating them by scoring their first and fifth goals. Justin Williams scored twice in a three-goal spree in the second period, and rookie Tyler Toffoli chipped in with the kind of skillful goal the Kings need from him in the short- and long-term future.

MESA, Ariz. - A buzz ran through the crowd, an accumulation of murmurs and applause that drifted across the pool to where Michael Phelps stood. It was just loud enough to make the swimmer grin as he stepped onto the block. "You heard people starting to get excited," he said. The 1,200 spectators at poolside weren't alone - an entire sport watched intently as the most-decorated athlete in Olympic history began his comeback from retirement this week. With an unprecedented 22 medals from three Games, Phelps is the Michael Jordan of swimming.

DALLAS - The captain is hurt, the goalie is shaken, old demons are at the door. The top-seeded Ducks are now in a three-game fight for survival against an energetic, upset-minded Dallas Stars team that roared back Wednesday for a 4-2 victory to tie the Western Conference first-round playoff series at two games apiece. “It's all about us and our execution,” Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler said. “We're lying if we tell ourselves we've played our best hockey in any one of these four games.

What looked like a routine NFL play wound up leaving a life-altering mark on former Jacksonville linebacker Russell Allen. Allen, 27, who was released by the Jaguars last week, is finished with football. He suffered a stroke on the field in a Week 15 game against Buffalo last season, something he recently revealed to Robert Klemko of TheMMQB.com . He was released after failing a physical. Allen developed a dime-sized dead spot on his cerebellum after a face-to-face collision in the first half with Bills center Eric Wood -- what seemed like a hard but typical hit. "It was strange because it was so routine," Allen told Klemko.

DALLAS -- Ducks forward Teemu Selanne told reporters he won't play Wednesday night after taking just two shots in 10 minutes-plus Monday. The Ducks' fourth line is expected to be Patrick Maroon-Nick Bonino-Kyle Palmieri. Ducks defenseman Mark Fistric expects to replace Robidas and appear in his first game since March 15 following a lower body nerve injury and minor-league conditioning stint last weekend. Rookie goalie Frederik Andersen was first off the ice Wednesday and should make his fourth straight playoff appearance after not playing four consecutive times during the season.

The Kings are the only team in the Western Conference to be mired in a 3-0 playoff hole, which is why there was more talk Wednesday about 2010 than their 2012 Stanley Cup championship resume. There is something special about rallying from an 3-0 series deficit, so extraordinary that it has happened only three times in NHL history. Current Kings Mike Richards and Jeff Carter are members of that select club, having accomplished the feat when they were with the Philadelphia Flyers, who pulled off the trick against the Boston Bruins in 2010.

Were they grasping at straws or coaxing small embers into becoming flames when the Kings repeatedly pointed out that their best players played better in the team's third straight playoff loss to San Jose than in the first two defeats? Better, in this case, is a relative term. And despite a more intense and effective effort by the top players who must carry the load, the Kings still lost, 4-3, in overtime. Now, they must defeat the Sharks on Thursday at Staples Center to avoid being swept - and to prolong a season that only a few weeks ago held great promise for another long postseason run. "It's a good opportunity for us to show - everybody's kind of writing us off right now - a good opportunity to show how resilient we are right now as a group," forward Mike Richards said Wednesday after the Kings' optional practice in El Segundo.
