A top seed vs. a No. 8 seed usually is a formality - there was a notable exception involving the Kings two years ago - but Dallas has won two of three games against the Ducks this season. The Oct. 20 opener was the Ducks' lone victory, as they overcame a 3-1 deficit with two Corey Perry goals and a shutout relief appearance by rookie goalie Frederik Andersen in his NHL debut, winning 6-3, after forward Ryan Garbutt launched himself at former Ducks forward Dustin Penner, who suffered a concussion on the hit. Garbutt was suspended.

The NFL's longest-tenured head coach is now out of a job. Andy Reid has been fired after 14 seasons with Philadelphia, the Eagles announced Monday, a move that was long anticipated. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie will hold a press conference at 9 a.m. Pacific time to discuss the decision to part ways with Reid, who steered the franchise to six NFC East titles, five NFC championship games and a Super Bowl appearance. Reid's 140 victories is a club record, ranking him 22nd on the NFL's all-time list.

Good weather in the Fresno-Dinuba-Reedley area during the winter and an early spring means prices for peaches and nectarines should be low for the next month. Farmers expect this year's harvest to be at least 6% to 7% larger than last year's. * Eagerly awaited Flavorcrest peaches are starting to show up in stores right now. It's a flavorful peach that should be around for the next two or three weeks.

Detroit's Miguel Cabrera became the first baseball player to win his league's Triple Crown in 45 years when he finished the 2012 season leading the AL in batting average (.330), home runs (44) and RBIs (139). Cabrera is only the 14th Triple Crown winner since 1901, but where does his season rank among all Triple Crown winners? Using a stat called OPS+ can help give us an answer. Basically, what OPS+ does is allow people to judge players across eras. OPS compares your stats to the league average and assign a value.

The second seasons of "Girls" and"Enlightened"will roll out on HBO in January. For "Girls" fans, that might be a long wait for someone longing for more glimpses of Adam Sackler's chest, sure. And it's an even longer wait for fans of "Enlightened," whose first season finale aired in December. The two comedies are paired for a beginning-of-the-year roll-out to fill the hole left by the horse-racing drama"Luck," which would have likely aired its second season during that period had it not been abrubtly canceled following a series of animal deaths.

Blake DeWitt still hasn't rented an apartment in Los Angeles. The 23-year-old infielder from small-town Missouri who was the Dodgers' feel-good story of last year doesn't know where he fits in the team's plans this season. But he's fine with that. "It'll take care of itself," DeWitt said. DeWitt is in his fourth stint in the majors this season and seventh in two years.

In a regular season when so much has gone right for the Ducks, Teemu Selanne closed it perfectly Sunday by tugging a fellow Anaheim legend onto the ice for a final skate and embrace in front of an adoring sellout crowd. The Ducks (54-20-8) produced their NHL-best 26th comeback victory with a 3-2 overtime triumph over the Colorado Avalanche at Honda Center. Afterward, Selanne, 43, found his friend and former Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who's expected to join him in retirement at season's end. “Teemu's such a class act and he's known for a while that this possibly could be my last game,” Giguere said after his 33-save night for the Central Division champions.

Emerging from the rubble of the Lakers' worst season since moving to Los Angeles was the story of someone who shall inherit the earth. Or at least a really nice pay raise. Jodie Meeks has been the Lakers' most consistent player, managing to avoid serious injury and continually putting in an honest night's work during a dreadful season for the franchise. He is averaging a career-best 15.6 points, almost double his output last season, but faces the same off-season question as almost everyone on the roster.

Nobody got hurt. The Lakers didn't lose by 50. There are only three games left. These were reasons for the Lakers to celebrate a 112-95 loss Friday to Golden State at Staples Center. The season that won't ever end is down to a handful of days. Nobody's complaining. No crying. Tension was sucked out of this season a month ago, if not longer. BOX SCORE: Golden State 112, Lakers 95 There's a lot of losing, though, six in a row for the Lakers (25-54) after a late run fell short, extending their team record for losses in a season.

Another sign of a team in decline - empty seats. There have been nine non-sellouts at home for the Lakers, a surprising number for a team that enjoyed 270 consecutive packed crowds at Staples Center until earlier this season. The franchise was startled when the sellout streak ended in mid-November against New Orleans. Now that game is considered the tip of the attendance iceberg. Last month was particularly bad for the Lakers, who failed to sell out five of eight home games, including one against the Clippers.

Mike Magee can smile about it now. But at the time, in the winter of 2009, he was burning the candle at both ends and his soccer career seemed ready to go up in smoke. "I was kind of living a bachelor lifestyle," says Magee, who enjoyed all of what New York had to offer during six seasons there. "Sometimes it was hard to focus and do the right things off the field. " Then, in quick succession, came a trade to the Galaxy, the birth of a child and a new perspective on life and soccer - both of which, Magee says, he enjoys much more now. "He has matured," says Bruce Arena, who coached Magee in New York then traded for him five months after taking over the Galaxy.

UCLA receiver Kenneth Walker cut across the field, leaving cornerback Adarius Pickett in his wake Thursday. He snagged a pass and cruised into the end zone. This was good medicine. Walker was concerned at times last fall, worrying about his future. He spent the season on the sideline after back surgery in June. “For a while, I was depressed,” he said. “I thought I was going to get lost in the shuffle. We only had one receiver leave. Everyone else was back and played.
