Now, it's all about avoiding the Chicago Letdown. After their last victory against the Blackhawks, the Ducks promptly went into an emotional tailspin, losing their next four games, dotted with poor performances in the first period. They finally got a correction with a significant win against the Blackhawks in Chicago on Friday night. Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller downplayed the meaning of being 3-0 against the Blackhawks. The Ducks won, 2-1, on Friday in a game crackling with playoff-type intensity.

When: 4 PST. Where: Nationwide Arena. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; Radio: 1150. Records: Kings 31-23-12, Blue Jackets 21-38-7. Record vs. Blue Jackets: 2-1. Update: It is bound to be a rough reception for former Blue Jackets forward Jeff Carter of the Kings, who spent a short but eventful time in Columbus, mostly injured and mostly unhappy. Carter was traded to the Kings for defenseman Jack Johnson and a conditional first-round draft pick on Feb. 23. Carter, who has scored twice for the Kings in five games, had 15 goals and 25 points for the Blue Jackets in 39 games.

Who needs Ilya Kovalchuk when you have Matt Greene firing up the Kings' offense? Outplayed and outshot by the Columbus Blue Jackets for the first 10 minutes Thursday, the Kings got new life when the rugged but low-scoring Greene took a pass from Alexander Frolov and let loose a slap shot that deflected past Steve Mason at 11:05. From there the Kings took off and took over, with Anze Kopitar scoring the 100th and 101st goals of his career to highlight a 4-1 victory before an unhappy crowd of 13,709 at Nationwide Arena.

AT COLUMBUS When: 4 PST. Where: Nationwide Arena. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; Radio: 830. Records: Ducks: 6-8-2; Blue Jackets: 9-6-2. Record vs. Blue Jackets: 0-1-0. Update: The Ducks are averaging 2.81 goals and are three for 27 on power plays in their last five games -- including zero for six on Wednesday in a 3-1 loss to New Jersey. The Ducks were without second-line center Saku Koivu because of what the team said was a "lower-body injury." He is expected to participate in the morning skate and pregame warmups but is questionable for the game.
