Controversy usually unfolds AFTER a playoff series starts. But it's already there, riding shotgun with the Kings and Sharks, who will be meeting for the third time in the postseason in the last four years. This all has to do with the knee-on-knee collision between Kings captain Dustin Brown and the Sharks' dynamic rookie Tomas Hertl on Dec. 19. Hertl, who required knee surgery, returned to action last week. Sharks fans haven't forgotten. Nor has Hertl, who told Bay Area reporters: "Playoff time, it's more important, because it's L.A. I not much like L.A. this season.

Hockey fans will have to wait for the first-ever playoff series between the Kings and the Ducks, but a matchup between the Kings and the San Jose Sharks promises to be the next-best thing. The Ducks on Wednesday wiped out any chance of there being a local derby in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs by clinching first place in the Pacific Division when they powered past the San Jose Sharks for a 5-2 victory at the Honda Center. In winning, the Ducks assured themselves of the No. 1 or No. 2 seeding in the West -- they're a point ahead of St. Louis but the Blues have a game in hand -- and consigned the Sharks to second place in the Pacific and a matchup with the third-place Kings.

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.

CALGARY, Canada - After 80 regular-season games, it is official: The Kings will be making their way to San Jose. That's where they will open the first round of the playoffs with many signs pointing to a Game 1 possibly Wednesday at San Jose. The drama in Anaheim with the Ducks beating the Sharks paved the way and set up the playoff matchups. At the same time, there was an uneven game going on at the Scotiabank Saddledome as the Calgary Flames won, 4-3, needing a shootout after the Kings rallied from a three-goal deficit.

The way the Ducks tell it, their interest in beating the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday is rooted mostly in the perks of what accompanies winning the Pacific Division and not about avoiding a first-round playoff series against the Kings. “No one's ever mentioned that about the Kings,” Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said. “The guys have fought long and hard to get to first place. … It's about the satisfaction of playing for six months and being the best.” By beating the Sharks in any fashion at Honda Center, the Ducks would clinch their second consecutive Pacific Division title and at least the No. 2 Western Conference playoff seeding.

For Kings defenseman Drew Doughty, the bottom line is being ready by April 16, the start date for the Stanley Cup playoffs. Doughty injured his shoulder in the first period against the San Jose Sharks on Thursday and did not return to action. He got back on the ice Monday and took part in most of the Kings' practice in El Segundo. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter, true to form, did not elaborate much when asked about Doughty by reporters after practice. Forward Dwight King, who has sat out four games because of an unspecified injury, also practiced.

Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the previous week: + The San Jose Sharks touched many hearts by going all-out to grant the wish of 17-year-old Sam Tageson, who has a debilitating heart condition. They signed him to a one-day contract and let him skate onto the ice with them last Tuesday, triggering a flood of emotions from him and all who saw or read about it. Many teams do similar good deeds. Bad guys make headlines but there are good people in the sports world.

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.

The seeds of the San Jose Sharks' six-game winning streak, their 8-1-1 record since the Olympic break and ascent to a tie with the Ducks atop the Pacific Division were planted at last season's trading deadline, when Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson and his staff realized their plodding team needed a new identity and a major infusion of youth. "We did the reset/refresh, where we clarified how we wanted to play. We wanted to be a much faster team," Wilson said. He had a head start with strength down the middle in Joe Thornton, Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski and Patrick Marleau, so Wilson mostly reconfigured the wingers and defense.
