Jason Blake is confused and frustrated. He sees an opportunity fleeing and wonders when another will come. And he wonders if a shot against Boston on Sunday night that goalie Peter Skudra handled with ease wasn't his undoing. "Maybe if I'd scored on that breakaway," Blake said, musing. He was given an opportunity to fill in for Glen Murray, who injured his knee in a Nov. 18 game against Colorado. Three games later, Blake had not scored and was minus-five on the plus/minus scale.

Surely, there has to be a snappy nickname when you see Jason Blake, Saku Koivu and Teemu Selanne playing on the same line for the Ducks. Wait a minute. That means Koivu, at 37, happens to be the youngster on the line. Their line, formed again for the first time since last season, features a combined 116 years of age and experience. Coming through Wednesday was Blake, 38, who scored the winning goal with 5:54 remaining in the Ducks' 4-3 victory against the league-leading St. Louis Blues at Honda Center The special qualities of the three men have been well chronicled and go well beyond the confines of the rink.

It didn't figure to be this way. Jason Blake became an NHL winger last season, then spent the summer playing 20-25 minutes a game for the U.S. team in the World Championships in Russia. He worked out all summer, reported to King training camp with optimism and in the best condition of his life, played most of the exhibition games, then started the season with the "energy line," centered by an old college rival, Steve Reinprecht, and including veteran winger Nelson Emerson. Life was good.

'I got flattened ... going to the net. I had no clue. I looked up and the puck was right there. I got a piece of it. I don't even know where it went.' --Jason Blake, New York Islander forward, who poked in his second of three goals while flat on his stomach in a 4-2 victory over the Flyers on Saturday

Three weeks ago, Jason Blake suffered a four-week knee injury, but don't bother asking him if he'll be ready to play when the Kings open their season Saturday night at Nashville. "He'd say he was ready if he was 40%," said Dave Taylor, the King senior vice president and general manager, chuckling. Actually, Blake's right knee tested at 85% only two weeks after surgery to deal with torn cartilage, and the center practiced Tuesday.

Ducks veteran forward Jason Blake, who suffered a severe cut above his left wrist in Friday night's game against the San Jose Sharks, will have surgery Monday to repair damage to a tendon. The team announced Saturday that Blake will be out of action for about three months but is expected to make a full recovery. He was taken to UCI Medical Center in Orange immediately after the game and received sutures to close the wound. His surgery, to be performed by Dr. David Hay, will be at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic.

Reporting from Nashville The Ducks made NHL history Sunday. It may not be a story Teemu Selanne tells when his grandkids cluster around him, but the fact is this will always be the answer to a Tennessee trivia question: Whom did Nashville beat to finally win a Stanley Cup playoff series? Answer: The Ducks. Ducks-Predators Game 6 box score The Predators, only two days removed from the giddy feeling that came from stealing Game 5, found even greater happiness at home.

Teemu Selanne, who said he has never seen such tense jostling for a playoff spot, reduced the Ducks' hopes to one thing. "Consistency," Selanne said. "We have to play the same way every shift. " That didn't happen Wednesday, but he'll take it. The Ducks turned to someone borrowed, someone old to beat the St. Louis Blues, 2-1, at Honda Center. Ray Emery, whose career the Ducks salvaged in February, made his first start in 13 months and stopped 30 of 31 shots. Jason Blake, a spry 37, knocked in two goals, one on his pass that went off a Blues defenseman and the other he knocked from the sky like manna to break a 1-1 tie two minutes into the third period.

Things could be a little hairy for the Ducks for however long they have to play without captain Ryan Getzlaf. But they shook off the big hole in their lineup and didn't buckle against the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night, taking a 5-2 win at the Honda Center even after allowing a 3-0 lead to shrink to one. Jason Blake scored two goals in his first multiple-goal effort in more than a year, and defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky scored two goals...

Rookie Jason Blake is still learning to play wing in the NHL, after playing center for 29 games, and the transition is difficult. "I was nervous at first," said Blake, who has replaced injured Donald Audette and moved onto a line with center Bryan Smolinski and winger Glen Murray. "Those are two outstanding players. . . . I'm in a good situation." How long he stays there "is up to Jason," Coach Andy Murray said.
