The Ducks brought back free agent Dustin Penner with a one-year contract Tuesday. The left wing has won a Stanley Cup both with Anaheim, where he began his NHL career in 2005, and with his most recent team, the Kings. Penner, 30, had two goals and 12 assists for the Kings last season and scored just 11 regular-season goals total in his three seasons with the team after averaging 24-plus in five seasons before that with Edmonton and the Ducks combined. He scored three goals for the Kings in the playoffs this year, and has 35 points (22 assists)

Kings are on a hot streak against Blues The Kings have an eight-game winning streak against the St. Louis Blues, including a sweep of the teams' second-round playoff series last spring. In three games this season - two of them at St. Louis - the Kings outscored the Blues, 14-7. The Kings scored at least four goals in every game. Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick was 2-0-0 with a 1.82 goals-against average against the Blues this season.

Matt Frattin is now intimately familiar with the repercussions of a couple of miscues while playing for Kings Coach Darryl Sutter . Frattin, a right wing acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs in the off-season, was among the group of Kings who lapsed in allowing Nashville's Matt Cullen to score a first-period goal Thursday. And when a similar Predators pass got by Frattin and pressured Kings' defenders about midway through the third period, he found his minutes in the Kings' 2-1 shootout victory to be 2 minutes 22 seconds after the second intermission.
