Joffrey Lupul waited a year for this? After undergoing two back surgeries and battling a debilitating blood infection that left him bedridden for almost two months, the Ducks winger on Sunday resumed an NHL career that once seemed lost. And his teammates welcomed him back with what may have been their most listless effort of the season in a 3-0 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes at the Honda Center. "Pissed off? Yeah, that'll do it," captain Ryan Getzlaf snapped when asked to sum up the mood in the dressing room after the Ducks were shut out for the second time in three days.

On Nov. 27, 2011, the Ducks lost a seventh consecutive game, to the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs, and Anaheim's coach then, Randy Carlyle assessed, “We just seem to be dead between the ears.” Three days later, after the team won for just the third time in 19 games, Carlyle was fired and Bruce Boudreau was named the new coach. Tuesday night, Boudreau's Ducks (7-1), riding a record-tying seven-game winning streak, start an eight-game road trip against Toronto (6-3), now coached by Carlyle.

Now that the Ducks have matched their franchise record with seven consecutive victories, their reward is an eight-game trip, their longest of the season, that starts Tuesday in Toronto.

Duck rookie Joffrey Lupul had another NHL first Tuesday. His first experience in what a hip check from Colorado defenseman Rob Blake feels like. Blake caught Lupul behind the Avalanche net and banged him loudly into the boards. "I saw him coming, but he was tangled up with [Steve Rucchin] and I thought I could sneak by him," Lupul said. "I was wrong. Next time I'll be ready. "I've seen him on TV hit guys with his hindquarters. It hurts more in person."

Taylor King , a onetime Santa Ana Mater Dei High basketball star who played at Duke and Villanova before recently announcing he would transfer to USC, will not play for the Trojans after all, a USC spokesman said Tuesday. King would have had to sit out one year before becoming eligible had he come to USC, and the details were not immediately clear why the former McDonald's All-American, who became notable for committing to UCLA as a 15-year-old, will not become a Trojan. — Baxter Holmes Houston Rockets All-Star center Yao Ming is confident that he'll be ready for the start of the regular season after a team doctor declared his surgically repaired foot fully healed.

The last hockey season for Joffrey Lupul was one he didn't quite imagine. One of the few bright spots in the Mighty Ducks' dismal 2003-04 season, Lupul appeared to be on a fast track but the NHL canceled last season and the 22-year-old forward was relegated to playing at the club's minor league affiliate in Cincinnati. Lupul, the Ducks' 2002 first-round pick, had a team-leading 30 goals and 56 points but also sat out a month because of a concussion.

The education of Mighty Duck rookie Joffrey Lupul continues. In a season of general underachievement, Lupul will be held up as one of the signs that the Ducks can be better next season -- barring a lockout. He had two assists in Sunday's 6-3 victory over the Kings, extending his point streak to three games.

When Bryan Murray took over as the Mighty Ducks' general manager, his priorities leaned heavily to bigger, more physical players. "We are out of small jerseys," he said at the time. Now in his second season, some of that has panned out. Murray was able to send to Cincinnati last week for defenseman Chris Armstrong and forward Casey Hankinson, two career minor leaguers Murray signed as free agents last summer. The Colorado Avalanche felt their presence in a 4-3 Duck victory Friday.

Pluses When the Washington Capitals took the lead in the Southeast Division on Thursday and became the No. 3-ranked team in the East, it was the first time they held a playoff position this season. The Carolina Hurricanes and Winnipeg Jets have faded and the Capitals have taken advantage by winning seven of their last 10 games. Pittsburgh Penguins forward Tanner Glass was generous to give up his number, 10, to new teammate Brenden Morrow. Glass, who switched to 15, followed that with an even classier move: He said via Twitter any fans who had his jersey with his old number on the back could get it changed to 15 at the team store, "and I'll pay for the switch.

+San Jose forward Patrick Marleau opened the season with four consecutive two-goal games as the Sharks went 4-0. That doesn't make up for his disappearing act during their playoff loss to St. Louis last spring, but it's commendable for him and for an aging team whose window of opportunity may soon close. +Edmonton rookie Nail Yakupov's celebration of his score-tying goal against the Kings on Thursday had a lot of hot dog to it, but it instantly grabbed attention. He slid on his knees from the offensive blue line almost to his own net as the crowd roared, touching off a debate over whether it was over the top. It seemed spontaneous, so let the kid express himself — but he should know opponents won't react kindly to repeats of that display.

Rewarding his players for persevering through a rocky start and 14 games without injured team captain Ryan Getzlaf, Ducks General Manager Bob Murray upgraded his defense for a playoff run and improved his financial flexibility. Murray on Wednesday reacquired Francois Beauchemin, who was a vital force during the Ducks' 2007 Stanley Cup run but became too pricy as a free agent and signed with Toronto in 2009. The cost for the Ducks to get him back was considerable ? winger Joffrey Lupul, premier college defense prospect Jake Gardiner and a conditional 2013 draft pick ?

The Ducks' All-Star break is over, but they slept through their alarm. They gave up a goal 14 seconds into the game against the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday, then fell behind by three in the first 12 minutes. That sent their All-Star goaltender, Jonas Hiller, to the bench before a comeback that was too little, too late in a 4-3 loss at the Honda Center. "I don't know what the problem was. We weren't ready," Hiller said. "And it seemed like instead of waking up, we just kept trying to play the same way. " Hiller held some of the NHL's best players to two goals in a 20-minute appearance in the All-Star game Sunday.

If it looked as if life without Ryan Getzlaf would be difficult for the Ducks, maybe this was worth remembering: He's not the only Ryan they have. Bobby Ryan, the 23-year-old star winger pressed into duty as a center to replace the Ducks' injured captain on the first line, scored two goals in the first period and added another 30 seconds into the third Wednesday for his third career hat trick in a 7-4 win over St. Louis on Wednesday night at...

Talk is cheap but losses are costly in the congested Western Conference, and the Ducks have done their share of talking and losing this season. But a series of one-on-one meetings between players and coaches appeared to reinforce the urgency of their dodgy situation and inspire them to do something about it Tuesday against the Phoenix Coyotes. "I think we came out with a lot of fire, a lot of passion," defenseman Luca Sbisa said. And promptly gave up a two-on-none break in the first 30 seconds.
