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.

Sergio Martinez is the World Boxing Council middleweight champion, and with the exception of some sanctioning-body shenanigans, has owned the belt since 2010. The 39-year-old Argentinian is 51-2-2 and has beaten the likes of Kelly Pavlik at his peak, Paul Williams when he was called boxing's most feared fighter and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. He deserves respect. But that's not what Miguel Cotto is giving him in anticipation of their June 7 HBO pay-per-view fight at Madison Square Garden.

The head was discovered first, wrapped in a plastic 99 Cents Only Store bag along one of the hiking trails below the Hollywood sign. The right hand and feet were found a day later, this time in a Rite Aid bag buried in a 6-inch grave. The left hand was uncovered hours later. Now, more than two years after the grisly discovery in Griffith Park, Los Angeles police have announced an arrest in the slaying of 66-year-old Hervey Medellin: Medellin's boyfriend, who had long been a person of interest in the case.

EDMONTON, Canada - Goalie Ben Scrivens knew he would have to worry about the usual suspects among his former Kings teammates. Of course, there was leading scorer Jeff Carter and the two-way brilliance of center Anze Kopitar. Then there was the man who came to dinner: Kings defenseman Alec Martinez. Martinez put the Kings ahead for good in their 4-2 victory against the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night at Rexall Place. Carter scored twice, his 23rd and 24th goals of the season. His first goal went off the left skate of Edmonton defenseman Philip Larsen, just 1 minute 36 seconds into the game, and Carter's other goal glanced off his own skate, giving the Kings a 3-1 lead at 10:16 of the second period.

One particular statistic might as well be printed in capital letters and practically leaps off the page. It resonates even more in a tight, stretch-run situation in which points and wins are carefully hoarded. Game-winning goals. Kings defenseman Alec Martinez has scored five times this season but two have been game-winners. BOX SCORE: Kings 3, Hurricanes 1 His power-play goal from the slot at 8:15 of the third period put the Kings in front for good and they added an empty-netter from Justin Williams to defeat the Carolina Hurricanes, 3-1, on Saturday afternoon.
