"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice," the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. assured his followers. But was he right? The arc of American history, at least, has a different shape. During the 19th century, a high point for justice was reached after the Civil War, with Reconstruction Republicans guaranteeing equal protection and voting rights for blacks in the 14th and 15th amendments. But these brave words did not prevent a tragic retreat, from the Gilded Age beginning in the 1880s through the Roaring '20s.

He has the beard of a hockey player residing in the first round of the playoffs, not one of a man living for months in the mountains. Kings forward Jeff Carter offered a take on the attitude - and, well, altitude - of a now-compelling playoff series between the Kings and the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference quarterfinals. "Yeah, we're halfway there. Halfway up the mountain," Carter said Sunday afternoon at the Kings' practice facility in El Segundo. Game 6 is Monday night at Staples Center with the Sharks holding a three-games-to-two series lead.

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)

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.

SAN JOSE - At 21, Matt Nieto still looks very much like a college student talking about coming home for Christmas or spring break. But while Nieto happens to be employed by a successful hockey team, he still opts for comfort when he comes home to Long Beach. Where does he go first? "In-N-Out," Nieto said, smiling, answering without hesitation. "Every time I go home, the first place I go is In-N-Out. " You can take the kid out of Southern California, but you can't quite take all of Southern California out of the kid. Never mind that they have plenty of those burger spots in Northern California and San Jose.

Justin Williams reached back and delivered some of his Game 7 playoff magic for the Kings in Game 4. For the Kings, it might as well have been Game 7. Justin Time. Or should that be Just In Time? With the Kings facing playoff elimination against the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night, Williams, who had been without a point in the first three games, scored twice in the Kings' 6-3 victory over the Sharks in Game 4 at Staples Center. San Jose leads the best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal series, three games to one. Game 5 will be on Saturday in San Jose.

"Moone Boy" (Hulu). Tall and shaggy Chris O'Dowd, whom you may have seen in "The IT Crowd," "Bridesmaids," "Girls" or Christopher Guest's dear departed "Family Tree" -- or even possibly on Broadway, where he is now playing opposite James Franco in a revival of "Of Mice and Men" -- is back with a second season of his delightful Irish-made, Hulu-hosted series, "Moone Boy.

Whether you think of it as HP Pavilion, the Shark Tank, its current corporate name, SAP Center, or "the cage" as Kings Coach Darryl Sutter colorfully offered, one thing is evident: The cage has become just that for the Kings in the playoffs, living quarters getting a little tight and the team possessing a championship pedigree unable to get out of town with a win. San Jose has recorded five straight victories at home in the playoffs against the...

It might be considered an overdue nod in some quarters, but Kings center Anze Kopitar's defensive abilities were recognized on Thursday morning when the NHL announced he is a finalist for the Selke Trophy. The other finalists are Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews, a former winner, and the Boston Bruins' Patrice Bergeron, a finalist for the third straight season. Bergeron, like Toews, also won the Selke previously. Bergeron won it in 2012. This is the first time Kopitar -- or any Kings player, for that matter -- has garnered a Selke nomination.

The band is getting back together. Well, at least two-thirds of it. Based on line rushes at Thursday's morning skate at Staples Center, it appears as though Kings captain Dustin Brown and center Anze Kopitar will be reunited for Game 4 against the Sharks on Tuesday night. They were a fixture, along with winger Justin Williams, during the Kings' run to the Stanley Cup in 2012, and a frequent partnership during many of their years with the Kings. There is a slight wrinkle, however, as Marian Gaborik was with them on Thursday morning.

For all the dangers football poses to its players, the sport still represents hope to thousands of young men. Judd Ehrlich's persuasive but slight documentary "We Could Be King" movingly argues for the necessity of high-school athletics, especially in low-income communities, where pigskin is a key tool educators have in encouraging would-be dropouts to stay in school. After the Philadelphia school board closes 37 schools and merges Martin Luther King High with its Germantown rivals, heroic Ed Dunn oversees the union of the two football teams.

Their big guys played big, the leaders led by fearless example, and the Kings, on the brink of going home for the summer, got the result they so urgently needed, a 6-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday at Staples Center that extended their season by at least one more game. "We're alive," said winger Marian Gaborik, who played a huge part in resuscitating them by scoring their first and fifth goals. Justin Williams scored twice in a three-goal spree in the second period, and rookie Tyler Toffoli chipped in with the kind of skillful goal the Kings need from him in the short- and long-term future.
