SAN JOSE - The opportunity to seize the Pacific Division lead slipped away from the Ducks on Thursday, when a criticized official's whistle and third-period breakdowns left them instead beaten by the San Jose Sharks, 3-2, at SAP Pavilion. With one more game than San Jose (46-18-7) still remaining, the Ducks (45-18-7) responded with a game-on type mind-set following the defeat. “We have 12 games left. We'll be tooth and nail in every one and they'll be the same,” Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry says that his swings through California to poach businesses work. As proof, Perry said Wednesday that California companies had created about 14,000 new jobs in Texas over the last two years. These Golden State companies, which number 60 in all, have expanded, relocated or moved jobs to Texas, Perry said. Eleven of the businesses have relocated their headquarters to the Lone Star State, including longtime Los Angeles-based Occidental Petroleum.

Tyler Perry's "The Single Moms Club" was greeted over the weekend with disastrous box office and horrible reviews. Most networks that had been planning to base a series on the film might be having second thoughts about those plans after seeing the evidence that the movie not only tanked with Perry's core audience, but marked his worst showing ever at the box office. But OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, isn't most networks. Perry apparently can do whatever he wants at OWN, with Winfrey's blessing.

DreamWorks Pictures' "Need for Speed" is expected to outpace Tyler Perry's "The Single Moms Club" for a box-office victory this weekend. The $65-million, stunt-filled picture, starring Aaron Paul of the AMC series "Breaking Bad," could generate $25 million to $30 million in ticket sales from the U.S. and Canada through Sunday, according to people who have seen pre-release audience surveys. That will muscle the PG-13 car flick to a win before Summit Entertainment's highly anticipated dystopian teen adventure "Divergent" hits cinemas next week.

Rick Perry is coming back to town. The Texas governor will be in Los Angeles next week to try to persuade local corporations to relocate to the Lone Star State. This is his third swing through the Southland since last year, and Texas this time around comes armed with a $300,000 advertising blitz. He returns with a big victory under his belt: Occidental Petroleum Corp. The Los Angeles oil giant, whose roots in the region go back nearly a century, announced last month it is relocating to Houston.
