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.

Their hard-earned road mentality survived the flight home intact, making the trip back to Staples Center with the Kings. That hasn't always been the case this season. But the Kings chased one goalie (Ondrej Pavelec) and scored once on his replacement (Al Montoya) to defeat the Winnipeg Jets, 4-2, on Saturday night for their sixth straight victory. Leading scorer Anze Kopitar scored twice for the Kings, his 23rd and 24th goals of the season, his linemate Marian Gaborik added two assists, as did defenseman Willie Mitchell for his first multi-point game in nearly two years.

Just weeks after a plea for her birth mother to step forward blazed through media outlets across the globe, Katheryn Deprill stood just one room away from the woman who abandoned her as a newborn 27 years ago in a Burger King bathroom. As she got ready to meet with her birth mother, Deprill entered the lawyer's conference room with a lifetime of questions. Why did she leave me? What does she look like? But before the answers even started, Deprill got something else.

Call this the month of the one-goal game. Four of the Kings' last five games have been won by one goal. They beat Washington in a shootout at home last week and swept their three-game trip by one goal each, winning the second one, at Washington, again in a shootout. It's an admirable asset to have in the stretch run, gearing up for the playoffs and possessing the ability to perform in tight situations. "I think we're comfortable in those types of games," Kings captain Dustin Brown said after Thursday's 3-2 win at Pittsburgh in regulation.

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - President Obama spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin for an hour Friday in an effort to resolve the crisis over Ukraine, the first direct conversation between the two leaders after nearly two weeks of tension. Putin initiated the call, White House officials said. It came after a televised interview in which Obama called for Russia to pull its troops back from the Ukrainian border. In the phone conversation, Obama asked Putin to "put a concrete response in writing" to a proposal the United States has made to resolve the crisis, which involved Russia's incursion into the Crimean region of Ukraine.

Just in case anybody wonders, Don King is alive and well. Actually, more so than ever. He is 82 going on 50. The hair doesn't quite stand on end in its salute to electrical shock treatments as it once did. That's because there isn't enough of it anymore. But the faded American flag jacket, and the big cigar that he just kind of chews on, and the five or six layers of jeweled necklaces, and the American flag tie, remain standard props. Also standard is the hilarious babble with which he promotes a boxing match from a podium.

PITTSBURGH -- As much as the Kings' 3-2 victory over the Penguins was about numbers -- highlighted by their seven-for-seven penalty-killing effort as they tied a franchise record with their eighth straight road win -- their success was equally about their attitude and being at their best when the situation seemed to be at its worst. In earning one-goal wins in Philadelphia, Washington and Pittsburgh in a four-day span and in holding NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby to one assist Thursday while blanking the league's most potent power play, the Kings turned apparent adversity into an advantage to win their fifth straight game and 13th in their last 16. They finished play against the East at 21-8-3, tying San Jose and St. Louis for the most wins by a West team against the East.
