Kings tonight AT CALGARY When: 5 PDT. Where: Pengrowth Saddledome. On the air: TV: FS West; Radio: 1150. Records: Kings 0-0-0; Flames 0-1-0. Record vs. Flames (2009-10): 1-3-0.

Kings Coach Terry Murray, who this season changed his line combinations often but probably didn't change goaltenders often enough to prevent Jonathan Quick from wearing down, said Wednesday he had settled on his lines for Thursday's playoff opener against the Canucks at GM Place. The combinations he had on the ice at El Segundo before the team flew to Vancouver weren't the same combinations he used to end the season — and there was one mild surprise.

Only in hockey could two men slug it out one night and meet for dinner the next night to celebrate their Ivy League days. "It's hilarious," said Kings right wing Kevin Westgarth , who was recruited for Princeton by Ducks enforcer George Parros but traded punches with him Tuesday. "My coach from Princeton came, and some alums. Princeton paid, I think. We're alums now. We're supposed to donate at least as much money as our dinner cost. " Westgarth, who has cemented a role on the fourth line, practiced alongside Kyle Clifford and Brayden Schenn on Thursday.

The Kings' walking wounded were busy at work on Friday in El Segundo, signing special California Firefighters' Assn. patches to be sold at tonight's game against Dallas at Staples Center. Their teammates were doing another kind of work not far away -- practicing. That, at this point, is premature for forward Kyle Calder (fractured thumb) and enforcer Raitis Ivanans (broken cheekbone).

The Kings' first playoff game in eight years was a splendid performance, making up with heart what several of their key players lacked in Stanley Cup playoff experience. It was a disappointment to them but no shame that they were done in by the quick hands and great vision of NHL scoring champion Henrik Sedin, whose pass from behind the net found Mikael Samuelsson in the slot for a wrist shot that beat Jonathan Quick eight minutes and 52 seconds into overtime and gave the Canucks a 3-2 victory to launch their Western Conference playoff series.

Over many dinners, Kings center Anze Kopitar has heard playoff tales from Rob Scuderi , who won the Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh last spring, and Justin Williams , a 2006 champion with Carolina, and soaked up every detail. "The old stories come out," Kopitar said. "They kind of walked me through it and I watch the NHL Network to see all the clips from a couple years ago. You see the atmosphere on TV but you definitely want to experience it when you're on the ice." Next week Kopitar will get his wish, joining many teammates in an NHL playoff baptism.
