PITTSBURGH - When the Kings wrap up their three-game, four-day trip Thursday against Pittsburgh, they'll also finish the non-conference portion of their schedule. They might not want it to end because they've had such success against the East this season, at 20-8-3. Among West teams, only San Jose (21-7-4) and St. Louis (21-5-2) have more wins against the East. But playing exclusively within the West means less travel, and that's always welcome. After Thursday, the Kings will have eight games remaining, four against teams currently holding playoff spots and four against non-playoff teams.

WASHINGTON - Greetings from the nation's capital, where winter seems to be firmly entrenched even though spring officially began last week. It's snowing here, and accumulations of two to four inches are expected to build until the snow tapers off Tuesday evening. The snow isn't sticking on roads and streets but it is slowing traffic locally. The Kings arrived early Tuesday morning from Philadelphia, boarding a train after their 3-2 victory over the Flyers. Because of their arrival in the wee hours, they canceled their morning skate.

WASHINGTON -- At least Kings Coach Darryl Sutter is consistent. His standard response when asked which goaltender will start a particular game is, “Be there for the song,” meaning you'll see who it is when the starters are on the ice for the national anthem. Mostly, he doesn't want to give anything away. Although he didn't use those exact words Tuesday, he still wouldn't disclose whether Jonathan Quick - the winner Monday at Philadelphia - or Martin Jones will start Tuesday against the Capitals.

Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the previous week: + The San Jose Sharks touched many hearts by going all-out to grant the wish of 17-year-old Sam Tageson, who has a debilitating heart condition. They signed him to a one-day contract and let him skate onto the ice with them last Tuesday, triggering a flood of emotions from him and all who saw or read about it. Many teams do similar good deeds. Bad guys make headlines but there are good people in the sports world.

PHILADELPHIA - If Flyers fans booed every time Jeff Carter touched the puck Monday, it must have sounded like music to his ears. With extra zip in his step if not revenge in his heart for the acrimonious end to his tenure with the Flyers, Carter scored the Kings' first goal in his first game back at the Wells Fargo Center. Another former Flyer longer removed, Justin Williams, scored the second goal of the Kings' eventual 3-2 victory. "There's an added incentive any time you play your former team, especially the way things ended here," Williams said of Carter, who didn't speak to the media after the game.

Forget the torch passing. Maybe there should have been the passing of a goalie stick when legend Rogie Vachon and Jonathan Quick convened in the dressing room Saturday afternoon after Quick became the winningest goalie in Kings history. Quick made 24 saves in recording his fifth shutout of the season as the Kings beat the Florida Panthers, 4-0, at Staples Center. Scoring for the Kings were Trevor Lewis, Mike Richards, Dustin Brown and defenseman Alec Martinez. They have twice shut out the Panthers this season.

For the Kings, it was almost like a carbon copy of their previous victory over the Florida Panthers this season. Close enough. This time, it was goalie Jonathan Quick with the 4-0 shutout against the Panthers, not Ben Scrivens, who pulled off that feat in a 3-0 Kings victory at Florida on Oct. 13. The win marked a career achievement for Quick -- his 172nd victory with the Kings, passing franchise legend Rogie Vachon. Vachon, in fact, was on hand at Staples Center on Saturday afternoon for the moment, a nice touch.

Let's pause for a moment of appreciation for Rogie Vachon and Toe Blake. And Marian Gaborik. First, the present-day man of the moment: Gaborik. The recently acquired Gaborik set up the first goal and later scored the decisive goal in a three-round shootout, leading the Kings to a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Thursday night at Staples Center. BOX SCORE: Kings 2, Capitals 1 (SO) The victory was the Kings' first in four games, stopping a three-game losing streak.

Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick and winger Dustin Brown, both stricken by flu, will be game-time decisions Saturday night for the encounter with the Ducks at Staples Center. Neither player participated in the Kings' morning skate at El Segundo, an optional session that most veterans skipped. Quick and Brown both missed Friday's practice because they were ill. “We'll see tonight,” Coach Darryl Sutter said Saturday morning when asked if one or both will be available to face the Ducks.
