Ducks defenseman James Wisniewski is well on the way to recovering from the bruised lung he suffered when he was hit in the chest by a shot during Game 3 Tuesday, though he didn't play Thursday in Game 4 and is doubtful for Game 5 Sunday at Joe Louis Arena. But he's still seething over being elbowed in the head by Tomas Holmstrom while he was reeling from the shot. The Detroit winger wasn't penalized on the play and the NHL did not impose supplementary discipline.

James Wisniewski, whose physicality and offensive skills energized the Ducks' defense after they acquired him from Chicago in March, signed a one-year contract that will pay him $2.75 million next season. If it were up to him, he would have signed for much longer. "Sometimes it's rough going off a bunch of one-year deals, but I can see where the Ducks are coming from," Wisniewski said Monday during a conference call with reporters. "They want me to play a full season of injury-free hockey."

Not to look past the NHL draft, which begins Friday at Staples Center with the first round and wraps up Saturday with the last six rounds, but the NHL's free-agency period will start next Thursday and the Kings and Ducks have been as busy preparing for that as for the draft. Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi said this week he had met with defenseman Sean O'Donnell , who is eligible for unrestricted free agency, but they haven't agreed on O'Donnell's future role. Lombardi praised the nearly 39-year-old's leadership, saying that "as a person, he was everything I could have imagined….

Novak Djokovic won the China Open with a 6-2, 7-6 (4) victory over Croatia's Marin Cilic , and Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia defeated Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, 6-2, 6-4, in the women's final Sunday. The second-seeded Serb broke Cilic's serve in the sixth game and again in the eighth to take the first set following a 90-minute rain delay. The second set was much tighter, with each breaking the other's serve three times to force the tiebreaker. But Cilic then struggled, and his return at 6-4 went wide, giving Djokovic the win. "My patience and the choice of certain shots and a little more experience than he has decided the winner today," said Djokovic, who has won all four matches between the two, all on hard courts.

As a coach you sometimes weigh what you see and what your gut tells you and make risky decisions. Ducks Coach Randy Carlyle made several such moves Sunday when he shifted a struggling Bobby Ryan to the second line and benched Erik Christensen and George Parros in favor of two forwards who hadn't played in a while. Petteri Nokelainen last played for the Ducks two weeks ago. Josh Green last played in the NHL in the 2006-07 season.

Kings-Ducks tonight When: 7:30. Where: Staples Center. On the air: TV: FS West. Radio: 1150, 830. Records: Kings 44-27-6, Ducks 37-31-8. Season record: Kings 3-1. Update: Jonathan Quick is to start in goal for the Kings after Jonathan Bernier won back-to-back starts. Bernier was assigned to Manchester of the American Hockey League after Erik Ersberg (strained back) was cleared to play. Forward Jeff Halpern (upper-body injury) is expected to be out a week after taking a shot to the head from Vancouver's Tanner Glass on Thursday.

Time was running out for the Ducks on Friday night, which seemed a fitting metaphor for the season. But they came back with a furious finish, scoring the tying goal with 32 seconds left in regulation before Saku Koivu netted the winner 14 seconds into overtime for a 5-4 victory over the New York Islanders at the Honda Center. The Ducks' third win in a row — after an 0-4-1 start following the Olympic break — left them seven points out of the final Western Conference playoff spot with 12 games to play.

The Ducks probably can't win this struggle, but they still have some fight in them. After a feisty 4-2 win over Chicago on Wednesday at the Honda Center, they have beaten the top two teams in the Western Conference in consecutive games. But even after the wins over San Jose and Chicago, they are still eight points out of a playoff spot with 13 games left — and four teams between them and eighth-place Detroit. Add another concern after defenseman James Wisniewski's second-period hit on Brent Seabrook knocked the dazed Chicago defenseman out of the game with what was termed — in one of hockey's euphemisms — "an upper-body injury."

It's time for action, not mere words, but a little talking-to from General Manager Bob Murray and Coach Randy Carlyle this week might have spurred the Ducks. Their 4-2 victory over St. Louis on Thursday at the Honda Center was their second in a row. Maybe, just maybe, this is not another false spring but the real thing for a team that was expected to be a contender but instead is far out of the playoff picture. "Obviously, I think it ignited a fire," said Bobby Ryan, who pulled the Ducks into a 2-2 third-period tie when he flew down the right wing and ripped a shot between a defenseman's legs for his team-leading 20th goal.

The difference between the Ducks and the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins did not look as vast on the ice Tuesday as the gulf between the teams in the NHL standings. That gap grew a little wider after a 4-3 victory gave the Penguins their NHL-best 12th victory of the season and a 7-0 start on the road that ties a league record. Still, the intensity and effort the Ducks played with was strikingly better than in some games they have played at the Honda Center, where a crowd of 16,128 saw the liveliest home game of the season by the unexpectedly struggling team.
