VANCOUVER, Canada -- In the Ducks' most significant game of the season so far, they will start a 20-year-old making his NHL debut in goal. Rookie John Gibson, promoted from minor-league Norfolk on Saturday following a blow to the head sustained by 19-win rookie goalie Frederik Andersen on Friday, left the ice first at the Ducks' Monday morning skate at Rogers Arena in Vancouver and will start Monday night against the Canucks (35-32-11). He replaces the team's slumping primary starter, Jonas Hiller, who has lost three consecutive games -- including two to last-place Edmonton -- and is 6-9-3 since winning 14 straight games from Dec. 6-Jan.

Canada's Stanley Cup drought continues, its best hope in years cruelly dashed by the gritty Boston Bruins. Defying the odds and a historical record that strongly favored the home team in the seventh game of the Stanley Cup finals, the Bruins on Wednesday played a patient and near-perfect defensive game to defeat the Vancouver Canucks, 4-0, at Rogers Arena and win their first Cup title since 1972. The Bruins raced off their bench at the final buzzer, mobbing goaltender Tim Thomas and hurling their sticks and gloves in the air as they embraced.

VANCOUVER, Canada - This had the feel of a nicely paced scrimmage between the Kings and the Canucks with not much on the line. Then came the third period and an intense hockey game suddenly erupted on Saturday night at Rogers Arena. Kings defenseman Matt Greene got hit with a puck and his skate was soon bloodied. He left the game, came back to play and watched his team lose it with 1:23 remaining as Brad Richardson, the former King, gave the Canucks a 2-1 win and helped Vancouver avoid official playoff elimination.

VANCOUVER, Canada -- Left wing Dustin Penner hasn't always been productive since he joined the Kings in a trade with Edmonton late last season, but he's a bright guy and almost always is a good interview subject. His goal-scoring abilities were in evidence Wednesday in the opener of the Kings' first-round playoff series against the Vancouver Canucks, and his conversational skills were in evidence Thursday after their optional practice at Rogers Arena. Penner, who scored only seven goals this season, played a strong game Wednesday and produced the decisive goal as the eighth-seeded Kings outplayed the top-seeded Canucks and earned a 4-2 victory. His efforts won him praise Thursday from Canucks Coach Alain Vigneault, who called Penner "a powerful force down in our own end. " Asked whether he was pleased to be recognized by Vigneault, Penner decided to play word games.

From Vancouver, Canada — After Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo was strafed by the Chicago Blackhawks in two straight first-round playoff games, Coach Alain Vigneault vowed to stick by him…and started Cory Schneider . After seeing Luongo yield 12 goals on 58 shots in two games as the Boston Bruins tied the Stanley Cup finals at 2-2, Vigneault vowed to stick by Luongo for Game 5 on Friday at Rogers Arena. "You can bet on that, yep," Vigneault said Thursday.

Much has been said of Vancouver Canucks Coach John Tortorella's attitude change since he left New York for the Pacific Northwest. Though he may be a bit more mild-mannered behind the bench and in news conferences, don't overestimate his ability to control his emotions. The Canucks entered Saturday having lost eight of their previous nine games (which included a 9-1 head-in-the-sand moment against the Ducks on Wednesday), and Tortorella finally lost his cool against the visiting Calgary Flames.

NHL PLAYOFFS :: FIRST LOOKS NO. 8 KINGS (40-27-15) vs. NO. 1 VANCOUVER (51-22-9) They met four times this season, with each team winning twice. One game went to a shootout (Jan. 17), which the Kings won. Two others were decided in regulation by a margin of one goal (Nov. 10 and March 26) and the only one-sided outcome was a contentious meeting on New Year's Eve at Staples Center in which the Kings won, 4-1. That night, Kings center Anze Kopitar ended a career-worst streak of 17 games without a goal.

VANCOUVER, Canada--Greetings from Vancouver, where only one of the Sedin twins was on the ice for the Canucks' game-day skate in advance of Wednesday night's first-round playoff opener against the Kings. Coach Alain Vigneault said afterward that Daniel Sedin, who has a concussion, won't play Wednesday. "This is a unique injury and you have to take it day by day," he said. Vigneault also said he would not address reports in the Swedish media that Daniel had experienced headaches after skating on Monday.

VANCOUVER, Canada - There were fights. Thunderous hits. Superb goaltending. Fine penalty killing. A dramatic late rally. "There was a little bit of everything in it tonight," Kings forward Mike Richards said. And a lot of relief on the Kings' part Monday as they skated off with a 3-2 overtime victory over the Vancouver Canucks. Despite being outplayed and outshot, 28-8, in the second and third periods combined, the Kings pulled even with 2 minutes and 54 seconds left in the third and stunned the crowd at Rogers Arena when Anze Kopitar rifled home a feed from Slava Voynov 48 seconds into overtime.

VANCOUVER, Canada - Anyone who saw John Tortorella's testy, 20-second news conferences when he coached the New York Rangers might have been shocked Monday when he conducted a cordial 20-minute session before the Canucks' morning skate at Rogers Arena. Tortorella scored a few mild jabs when asked about the lineup - a subject he has established as a no-go - but he was personable and thoughtful, as he has been since he was hired to coach the Canucks last summer. It's a deliberate difference from his rudeness in New York.

VANCOUVER, Canada --- Finishing in the top eight in the West had taken so much out of the Kings that Coach Darryl Sutter wasn't sure what his players had in reserve before their first-round series against the top-seeded Vancouver Canucks. They had overcome a 7-8-1 start at home and repeated dips out of playoff position but then lost their final two games. Sutter, who took over for Terry Murray on Dec. 22, wasn't sure if his team had gone as far as it could manage.

  VANCOUVER, Canada--Center Jarret Stoll scored on a shot from the left circle 4 minutes 27 seconds into overtime on Sunday, giving the Kings a 2-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks and a five-game triumph in their first-round playoff series. The Kings, seeded eighth and matched up agains the NHL's top regular-season team, had not won a playoff series since 2001. They had a chance to win the series in four games but had to come back north of the border to Rogers Arena on Sunday, where they finished things on the strength of another fine goaltending performance by Jonathan Quick.

It's been 11 years since the Kings won a playoff series, so what's another four days? Well, plenty actually, if you believe Kings Coach Darryl Sutter, who wasn't too happy about the extended break in their best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series against the Vancouver Canucks - and maneuvered his way through yet another off-day Saturday. Last Sunday, the Kings held a commanding 3-0 lead in the series and looked poised to eliminate the Canucks, the Presidents' Trophy winners as the NHL's top regular-season team.

It really is a small world after all. When Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick and Vancouver goalie Cory Schneider faced each other in Games 3 and 4 of their teams' first-round playoff series it was like deja vu all over again. Quick, a native of Milford, Conn., and Schneider, who was born in Marblehead, Mass., are familiar foes. They opposed each other in prep school, when Quick attended Avon Old Farms School in Avon, Conn., and Schneider attended Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass.
