PHOENIX — In nearly four decades around professional hockey, Bruce Boudreau has seen a lot of strange things. But the coach can't remember seeing a team play consecutive games on the road in the same city during the regular season, something his division-leading Ducks will do Monday night when they meet the Phoenix Coyotes for the second time in three nights in Arizona. "I can't recall. In recent years anyway," Boudreau said. "But I'm getting old, so maybe my memory's getting old too. " Forward Bobby Ryan's memory is a lot fresher.

The Ducks badly wanted a fast start in this lockout-shortened season, and their attention to that reached historic proportions Friday night, when they surpassed the Stanley Cup season of 2006-07 for their best start ever. Boosted by a three-goal lead courtesy of Ryan Getzlaf, Teemu Selanne and Matt Beleskey, the Ducks survived a late Minnesota Wild rally to win 3-2, with goaltender Jonas Hiller contributing a strong 31-save effort in his third consecutive victory. The Ducks' eighth consecutive victory at Honda Center lifted them to 15-3-1.

EDMONTON, Canada - Wasted days and wasted nights. It could be that mournful country and western song. Any song about a lost dog, a lost love … or a lost hockey team. The early days of the condensed schedule sent the Kings hopscotching through the West, from Los Angeles to Denver to Edmonton to Glendale, Ariz. They weren't able to leave Edmonton until about 1 a.m., hours after losing 2-1 in overtime to the Oilers. This meant the Kings arrived in Phoenix around 5 a.m. Friday and practice was canceled.

Kings President and General Manager Dean Lombardi had strong words on Friday about the behavior of some of the Phoenix Coyotes players, condemning the post-game actions of goalie Mike Smith, who threw his stick toward an official and later lashed out at the officiating. Lombardi asserted that Smith incited the crowd at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Ariz., after the Kings beat the Coyotes, 4-3, in overtime in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals. He referenced European soccer and the rules governing the actions of the players in terms of inciting the crowd.

Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi blamed members of the Phoenix Coyotes for inciting fans at Jobing.com Arena to hurl debris at players and Coach Darryl Sutter on Tuesday after the Kings won the Western Conference title. Goaltender Mike Smith threw his stick toward an official and center Martin Hanzal nearly made contact with a referee after Dustin Penner 's overtime goal ended the series. Moments earlier, Coyotes defenseman Michal Rozsival had been helped off the ice after an unpenalized hit from Kings captain Dustin Brown . "I know they wear the same color jerseys, the refs as the Kings, but they didn't have to play for them tonight," defensman Keith Yandle said.

There was the celebratory group hug taking place by the glass, followed by a loud chorus of boos and then objects being tossed on the ice by some fans. Yes, the Kings' long strange journey to the Stanley Cup finals -- returning there again for the first time in 19 years -- ended with one long thrilling night of hockey and in somewhat surreal fashion. Weren't they supposed to be showered with champagne, not debris? The final step of the journey back to the finals came courtesy of the man who received more criticism since he arrived in Los Angeles a little more than a year ago than any other Kings player in recent memory.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The NHL announced the dates for the Stanley Cup finals, starting a week from Wednesday at the home of the Eastern Conference champion. Either the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils, who are competing for the East title, would have home ice because they compiled better regular-season point totals than the Kings or the Phoenix Coyotes. The Kings need one more victory over the Coyotes to earn the West title and the teams will meet Tuesday night at Jobing.com Arena in Phoenix, the Kings' a second opportunity to clinch their first Cup finals berth since 1993.

Special-teams play is considered crucial to playoff success, but the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup a year ago with a so-so power play and the Kings reached the Western Conference finals this spring without getting significant production with a man advantage. The Kings also won their first three games against the Phoenix Coyotes despite scoring only two power-play goals, each generated during a two-man edge in Game 2. But their power play's failings were magnified Sunday when they had a chance to advance to the Stanley Cup finals but were stymied six times in a 2-0 loss that sent the series back to Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Ariz., on Tuesday.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Clarence Campbell bowl, awarded to the champion of the NHL's Western Conference, is not what the Kings dreamed of lifting or kissing or winning this season. Always, their goal was to win the Stanley Cup, as preposterous as it seemed while their offense went stale and they struggled to score goals and went through the turmoil of a midseason coaching change. Sometimes it seemed that they alone believed, that they alone saw what they could become with the right tweaks and right coach and right approach.
