Flawless at home and flawed on the road? Not quite. But the Kings already have lost three times on the road during the playoffs, whereas they dropped only one road game through four rounds on their way to the Stanley Cup last year. "We can't rest and be comfortable with just being a great home team," Kings winger Justin Williams said on Monday. "We need to be killers on the road. " Game 4 is at San Jose on Tuesday night. The Kings, leading the series two games to one, practiced at El Segundo on Monday before flying back to the Bay Area.

SAN JOSE - Trying to pry injury or lineup information out of Kings Coach Darryl Sutter is an interesting and difficult process. Sometimes he flat-out refuses to answer. Sometimes he stickhandles around the question. For example: Based on the line combinations Sutter used during the team's practice Monday in El Segundo, it appeared that he planned to have left wing Kyle Clifford rejoin the lineup Tuesday as the Kings try to extend their two games to one lead over the San Jose Sharks in the teams' Western Conference semifinal playoff series.

San Jose Sharks winger Raffi Torres' hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety for his hit on Kings center Jarret Stoll on Tuesday has ended, but the league is not expected to announce its verdict until later Thursday. The announcement probably will be made before Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinal series between the Kings and Sharks is played Thursday night at Staples Center. The Kings won the opener, 2-0, but lost Stoll late in the second period to a suspected concussion that is likely to keep him out a week or more.

A shutout victory might look dominant on the scoreboard, but the Kings' players and coaches saw room for improvement after Tuesday night's 2-0 win over the San Jose Sharks. Mike Richards, who scored midway through the second period, did not like the way his team started out, with San Jose forcing most of the action in the first 10 minutes. "They had a lot of time to make plays," Richards said. "At the beginning of a series, it sometimes feels like you're trying to feel out people, but luckily it didn't cost us. " The Kings not only managed to score at the end of the first period, they also found a rhythm in the second and shut down a Sharks power play that has been very effective in this postseason.

Based on the line rushes and defense pairs in the Kings' game-day skate Tuesday at Staples Center, their lineup for Game 1 of their second-round playoff series against the San Jose Sharks on Monday night looks to be the same as it was for their first-round clincher against St. Louis. That means they won't have rugged left wing Kyle Clifford, who apparently suffered an injury during the series against the Blues, though the Kings aren't revealing anything. The fourth line in Game 6 against St. Louis -- and in Tuesday's morning skate -- was Jordan Nolan on the left, with veteran Colin Fraser in the middle and rookie Tyler Toffoli on the right.

There was a good deal of playoff chatter around the Kings training facility Sunday morning. After an abbreviated skate, with the team still waiting to hear about its second-round matchup, players imagined the excitement of a freeway series against the Ducks. They talked about facing a familiar - and tough - opponent in the San Jose Sharks. Dwight King had no preference either way. He was just hoping for a happy ending. "In the playoffs, you have more eyes on you," he said.

Left wing Kyle Clifford was missing from the Kings' morning skate in advance of their potential series-clincher against the St. Louis Blues Friday night at Staples Center. His place on the fourth line was taken by Jordan Nolan, creating a trio of Nolan, Colin Fraser and Tyler Toffoli. Teams are usually vague about regular-season injuries and even more close-mouthed during the playoffs, so Kings Coach Darryl Sutter offered no enlightenment about Clifford's absence. “He was out there.

Major League Baseball on Friday suspended the crew chief and fined all four umpires involved in a bizarre incident during Thursday's game between the Angels and Houston Astros. The discipline all resulted from what an MLB statement called "a misapplication" of a rule -- that is, the umpires not knowing the rules. Crew chief Fieldin Culbreth was suspended two games. Culbreth and the other three umpires on the crew all were fined an undisclosed amount. The announcement appeared to reflect MLB's concern about umpire accountability.

Say it ain't so, Fresno Joe! That kiss-cam video that went viral of the lady getting upset with her man for not offering a smooch when they were shown on the video board wasn't just a prank, it was a hoax perpetrated by staff of the Fresno Grizzlies minor league baseball team.
