VANCOUVER, Canada  - The panicked hue and cry from the Kings' fan base when defenseman Drew Doughty left Thursday's game in San Jose was almost like that bleak November night in Buffalo when goalie Jonathan Quick suffered a serious groin injury. That's where the similarities end. Quick immediately went home to Los Angeles and missed a substantial portion of the season. By contrast, Doughty, who appeared to injure his shoulder against the Sharks in the first period, continued on the trip with the team to Canada.

There were no loud celebrations in the Kings' locker room at Staples Center on Wednesday, no high-fiving or back-patting or any other hint players appreciated the significance of their 4-0 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes. And that's as it should be for the Kings, who elevated their expectations by winning the Stanley Cup in 2012 and reaching the Western Conference finals last season with a bruised and battered team. Their seventh win in eight games and 15th in their last 19 assured them of the third spot in the Pacific Division and a first-round playoff matchup against the No. 2 team in the division -- likely the San Jose Sharks -- but it didn't set off any partying.

Robert L. Brosio, a retired federal prosecutor who supervised high-profile cases that included those against bank swindler Charles Keating Jr. and Los Angeles police officers who were involved in the beating of Rodney King, has died. He was 77. Brosio, who for 28 years led the criminal division of the U.S. attorney's office in Los Angeles, had a massive pulmonary embolism in February, his daughter Serena Brosio said. He died Friday at a Pasadena hospital. While he seldom argued cases in court himself, Brosio was in charge of more than 100 prosecutors and set a standard of "ramrod integrity," said Nora Manella, an associate justice of the California Court of Appeal in Los Angeles.

Desperate Hockey Teams, Part II. The other entry in the three-way battle between Minnesota, Phoenix and Dallas for two wild-card playoff spots in the Western Conference, the Coyotes, visits the Kings on Wednesday night. It's no coincidence that Minnesota and Phoenix are the only teams to beat the Kings this season when the Kings led after two periods. They both did so in March with the Wild rallying for a 3-2 win Monday night. "It's hard but you just have to realize the desperation of teams," Kings center Mike Richards said.

After an international bidding war, a Westside mansion often described as a French palace has changed hands for $102 million, making it the most expensive residential sale ever recorded in Southern California. As is often the case with high-end properties, the identity of the trophy home's unnamed buyer has been obscured behind layers of lawyers, agents and a limited liability company. But the real estate equivalent of a bread crumb trail suggests that the purchaser of the opulent estate is onetime junk bond king Michael Milken, who has spent more than two decades devoted to philanthropic efforts since he pleaded guilty in 1990 to securities fraud.

It was all going so well until the brother-in-law got involved. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick was picking up right where he left off the other day, looking sharp, poised and on his game, even if all of his teammates weren't quite along for the ride Monday at Staples Center. Then Minnesota forward Matt Moulson, who is Quick's brother-in-law and a former teammate, got opportunistic and sparked a third-period rally by the Wild as Minnesota beat the Kings, 3-2, scoring twice in a span of 1 minute 2 seconds.

Jake King, a golfer at North Hollywood High, had to miss last week's scheduled match because he was in Maryland helping represent his school in the CyberPatriot VI competition that was won by North Hollywood.  Competitors show off their cyber-defense knowledge to "thwart attacks on computer systems and networks. " Said North Hollywood golf Coach Steve Miller: "I hope he breaks into the 80s like he can can break into a computer. " Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

Upon further review . . . Teammates were more than impressed with Kings goalie Jonathan Quick's incredible kick save on Blake Wheeler with just under a minute remaining in their 4-2 win over Winnipeg on Saturday night. Quick was on his stomach and kicked his right leg back to make the save on Wheeler, who was shooting from a sharp angle from the right corner. The view on the ice was one thing. But it looked even better when the Kings were finally able to watch the replays afterward.
