Controversy usually unfolds AFTER a playoff series starts. But it's already there, riding shotgun with the Kings and Sharks, who will be meeting for the third time in the postseason in the last four years. This all has to do with the knee-on-knee collision between Kings captain Dustin Brown and the Sharks' dynamic rookie Tomas Hertl on Dec. 19. Hertl, who required knee surgery, returned to action last week. Sharks fans haven't forgotten. Nor has Hertl, who told Bay Area reporters: "Playoff time, it's more important, because it's L.A. I not much like L.A. this season.

It was a win. That was all that mattered to the Clippers. The intensity was lacking for the most part, but the Clippers still worked hard enough for a 117-101 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday afternoon at Staples Center. No one really expected the Clippers to play with the same passion against a Kings team going nowhere as they displayed Wednesday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder in a game that had playoff implications. "Certain games are a little tougher than others just because one team might not be playing for anything and one team might," said Blake Griffin, who led the Clippers with 27 points on nine-for-15 shooting and nine assists.

This will be the first time in 17 playoff series the Kings will have home-ice advantage. They last had home ice at the Forum, in a first-round series against Edmonton in 1992. The fifth-seeded Kings and sixth-seeded Sharks each won two games in their season series, but the Kings got five points because one of their losses was in a shootout. Brent Burns led both teams with eight points, on two goals and six assists. Justin Williams led the Kings with six points, on two goals and four assists.

The Kings are on the verge of clinching a playoff spot -- but there's also a chance they could finish ninth and miss the postseason party. Courtesy of Jeremy Zager, the Kings' stat guru and manager of communications and broadcasting, here are their playoff scenarios as they prepare to finish the season with home-and-away games against the San Jose Sharks. The Kings' magic number to clinch a playoff spot is one. They can clinch a spot Thursday by one of the following ways: -- A Dallas loss (in regulation, overtime or shootout)

Defenseman Randy Jones stayed home with wooziness but the Kings aren't calling his injury a concussion. The Kings' 4-3 loss to Minnesota on Monday was their third in a row and fourth in five games.

There is one small downside to winning the William M. Jennings Trophy, according to Kings goalie Jonathan Quick. The Jennings award goes to "the goalkeeper(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against it. " It had never been won by a Kings' goalie and Quick won it outright when the Boston Bruins allowed three goals Sunday in their final game of the season, bringing their total to 177. Los Angeles allowed 174 goals this season. "The goalie is nominated to make the speech at the awards there, but the team gave up the least amount of goals in the league," Quick said on Saturday night.

They paid tribute to his “class and charisma,” and the Kings sent Finnish icon Teemu Selanne of the Ducks off with a whimsical gift in a pregame ceremony honoring Selanne's career. A standup paddleboard. Selanne is not going off into the sunset on his board - where he can presumably hang with buddy and former teammate and avid surfer, Paul Kariya - just yet. BOX SCORE: Ducks 4, Kings 3 (SO) The Staples Center fans may not have seen the last of Selanne, who will be retiring after the season and did not play against the Kings on Saturday.

If the hockey gods had a sense of humor, they would have arranged for the Kings and the Ducks to play for the Pacific Division title Saturday at Staples Center. At the very least, they would have put one team in position to knock the other out of the playoffs. Alas, the hockey gods must have been busy elsewhere because they didn't leave much drama surrounding Saturday's game. The Kings have been locked into third place in the division for a while, certain that they will start on the road against the San Jose Sharks, likely on Wednesday.

EDMONTON, Canada - Records, refining and an imminent retirement. The three Rs marked the Kings' final regular-season road game as they defeated the Edmonton Oilers, 3-0, on Thursday night at Rextall Place behind Marian Gaborik's three-point effort and the fourth shutout of the season for rookie goalie Martin Jones. Records were matched and others broken with the Kings' late-season tour of the also-rans in the Pacific Division ending, thankfully, as did their three-game losing streak.

Hockey fans will have to wait for the first-ever playoff series between the Kings and the Ducks, but a matchup between the Kings and the San Jose Sharks promises to be the next-best thing. The Ducks on Wednesday wiped out any chance of there being a local derby in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs by clinching first place in the Pacific Division when they powered past the San Jose Sharks for a 5-2 victory at the Honda Center. In winning, the Ducks assured themselves of the No. 1 or No. 2 seeding in the West -- they're a point ahead of St. Louis but the Blues have a game in hand -- and consigned the Sharks to second place in the Pacific and a matchup with the third-place Kings.

CALGARY, Canada - After 80 regular-season games, it is official: The Kings will be making their way to San Jose. That's where they will open the first round of the playoffs with many signs pointing to a Game 1 possibly Wednesday at San Jose. The drama in Anaheim with the Ducks beating the Sharks paved the way and set up the playoff matchups. At the same time, there was an uneven game going on at the Scotiabank Saddledome as the Calgary Flames won, 4-3, needing a shootout after the Kings rallied from a three-goal deficit.
