SAN JOSE - From a game-opening backhand he gloved while sprawling to the game-ending threat he denied with his left leg pad, goalie Jonathan Quick gave the Kings the best response possible to their recent slump. A shutout. In San Jose. Anze Kopitar's late second-period goal stood up Monday as the Kings delivered a signature 1-0 victory over the division-rival Sharks at SAP Center to snap their five-game losing streak and end a scoreless drought at 154 minutes 43seconds.

Both the penalty shot and the ensuing clean look that Anze Kopitar had ended badly in the Stadium Series, as has much in the Los Angeles Kings' five-game losing streak that trails them to Monday's game in San Jose. “When you have good opportunities and don't score, you've just got to finish those opportunities,” Kings Coach Darryl Sutter said Saturday night after his team's 3-0 loss to the Ducks, in which Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller stopped all 36 shots at him. That's where the Kings (29-18-6)

San Jose residents are rallying to find a serial arsonist accused of setting at least 13 fires since Wednesday. No one has been seriously injured in the early morning fires, but authorities fear that good luck could run out if the arsonist isn't caught soon. Police believe the arsonist is using newspaper or cardboard to set the fires, which have ranged in size and scope.

After making first-line forward Dustin Penner a healthy scratch in favor of Jakob Silfverberg on Tuesday, Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau had Silfverberg paired again with stars Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry in practice Thursday.

What the Ducks want out of 2014 they produced Tuesday night. In a high-energy blitz of talent and toughness that answered a road loss to the San Jose Sharks two days earlier, the Ducks scored five goals in an 11-minute 25-second stretch to win, 6-3, at Honda Center. "Huge for us, because it shows when we play our game, we win," said Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano, who capped the scoring with a short-handed goal early in the third period. Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf already had two assists when he outraced the Sharks on an earlier third-period breakaway, closing it with a muscled shot that beat San Jose goalie Antti Niemi and forced his removal from the game.
