SAN JOSE - The Pacific Division lead might change hands dozens of times before the season ends, but knowing that the winner of Wednesday's game between the Kings and the San Jose Sharks would take over first place added a dash of tension when the teams met at SAP Center. Finishing atop the tough division "is what we wanted to do, set out at training camp to do," Kings center Jarret Stoll said. If that goal seemed unlikely when goaltender Jonathan Quick (groin strain) joined stalwart defenseman Matt Greene (upper-body injury)

A San Jose sex crimes detective pleaded guilty to committing a sex crime and will serve at least six months in jail, prosecutors said Friday. Tony Fregger, 34, who has worked as a San Jose police officer since 2005, turned himself in last July after his computer was seized by authorities. The investigation into Fregger showed he had solicited and received explicit photos on Facebook from a girl he knew was a minor, according to the San Jose Mercury News . "Certainly as a police officer in the sex crimes unit, he knew what he was doing was illegal," said Santa Clara County prosecutor David Ezgar.

San Jose has a big pig problem, as in 200-pound wild boars tearing up and eating their way through ritzy neighborhoods. So the city council this week came up with a solution: a three-month open hunting season within city limits. State-permitted shooting of the hoofed-beasts was approved by the San Jose City Council after officials determined the animals were found to be the culprits behind chewed up lawns and golf course fairways. There was also a concern of what would happen if a pig vs. human encounter got out of hand.

His arms thrust high … and just like that, the weight seemed to lift off the shoulders of a jubilant Anze Kopitar after his second goal of the season. Nothing quite like an overtime goal against the league's best team to do the trick. The Kings center had broken a season-long scoring drought last week, but his game-winner on the power play at 2 minutes 32 seconds was in a different category, leading the Kings to a 4-3 victory against the San Jose Sharks in overtime on Wednesday night at Staples Center.

A federal judge reluctantly upheld Major League Baseball's antitrust exemption Friday, throwing out almost all of a lawsuit the city of San Jose filed against the league. U.S. District Judge Ronald Whyte also affirmed MLB's right to determine where its teams play. However, Whyte left intact one claim that San Jose might have been harmed because of the league's failure to decide whether the Oakland Athletics can move there. That could open the door to testimony from Commissioner Bud Selig and the release of internal league documents to show why MLB has not made a decision in the 4-1/2 years since Selig appointed a committee to evaluate the A's proposed move to San Jose.
