Keys for the Kings and Canucks in their playoff series: KINGS: The stellar penalty killers (fourth in the league) need to recapture some mojo after giving up four power-play goals the last two games; ability of shutdown duo Drew Doughty and Rob Scuderi to combat the Sedin twins; Mike Richards needs to become the Richards of 2010. CANUCKS: Daniel Sedin's health and ability to reignite the power play that has struggled in his absence (concussion); need the dazzling Roberto Luongo in goal, not the frazzled Luongo; trade-deadline acquisitions must quickly find chemistry with an experienced core.

VANCOUVER, Canada - Goals off the rush, an overwhelmed defense and a less-than-stellar goaltending performance all combined to end the Kings' five-game winning streak. It wasn't pretty. Vancouver defeated the Kings, 5-2, on Saturday night at Rogers Arena, handing them their first loss since Feb. 17 at Chicago. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick took the blame. The Canucks scored four of the final five goals of the game, including the last three. Their last goal came via an empty-netter after Quick had been pulled for an extra attacker.

Can history be halted or at least slowed by the reappearance of a former Art Ross Trophy winner? The Kings are trying to sweep a best-of-seven playoff series for the first time in franchise history, and trying to do so against Vancouver, the NHL's best team in the regular season. And so, the potential spoiler/savior — depending upon your allegiance — wore a Canucks uniform at practice Tuesday, not a cape. Furthermore, forward Daniel Sedin — the Art Ross Trophy winner as the NHL's leading scorer last season — looked stripped of some of his abilities, admitting he felt about as slow as he has been in five years.

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 Canucks star Daniel Sedin was back in the building ... and back on the ice. As for Game 4 against the Kings? His readiness will likely come down to a game-time decision Wednesday. The forward, who has been out since March 21 because of a concussion, rejoined his teammates at practice in El Segundo on Tuesday afternoon. It was the first time in eight days he has taken part in a full practice.  “It felt great. It's been a tough four weeks," said Sedin, who flew to Los Angeles from Vancouver on Monday.

Reporting from Vancouver, Canada -- It seemed as if Vancouver's Sedin twins were triplets Thursday when they combined on one goal and each set up another in the Canucks' 3-2 overtime victory over the Kings in the teams' playoff opener. There were only two identically gifted, red-bearded Sedins on the ice, but what a twosome they were in giving the Canucks the edge as the series resumes Saturday at GM Place. Henrik , who led the NHL this season with 112 points, set up Daniel for Vancouver's second goal and made a perfect pass from behind the net to Mikael Samuelsson for the winner at the end of a nearly two-minute shift.

The season was slipping away in the din of Staples Center, and the Sedin twins recognized the slippery slope. How could they not? But they are both alert and intelligent enough to recognize that things, indeed, may be different for the Canucks. Forty minutes of adversity didn't mean that it was destined to end in tears. "I said it from Day One, it's a different team," Henrik Sedin said. "And we stuck with it. That's the biggest thing. Personally, our line, if this would have been a couple of years ago we would have started cheating.

One small change had a big impact in helping the Canucks pull even with the Kings and turn their playoff series into a best-of-three matchup entering Game 5 on Friday at GM Place. Vancouver Coach Alain Vigneault's decision to take Alex Burrows off the top line and move Mikael Samuelsson on the wing with twins Daniel and Henrik Sedin was pivotal to the Canucks' 6-4 victory Wednesday. The Sedins combined for five points in the final period, and Samuelsson continued his streak of scoring at least one goal in every game.

The Kings and Vancouver Canucks are back to where they started in one sense, even in games after the Canucks scored four times in a furious third-period push Wednesday to wrest a 6-4 victory at Staples Center that sent the series back to Vancouver for Game 5 on Friday tied at 2-2. But it's tough to look at this and not think the Canucks have taken the upper hand after twins Henrik and Daniel Sedin, effective but not extraordinary in the early going,...
