They paid tribute to his “class and charisma,” and the Kings sent Finnish icon Teemu Selanne of the Ducks off with a whimsical gift in a pregame ceremony honoring Selanne's career. A standup paddleboard. Selanne is not going off into the sunset on his board - where he can presumably hang with buddy and former teammate and avid surfer, Paul Kariya - just yet. BOX SCORE: Ducks 4, Kings 3 (SO) The Staples Center fans may not have seen the last of Selanne, who will be retiring after the season and did not play against the Kings on Saturday.

Staples Center is home to four professional sports franchises, the Lakers, Clippers, Kings and Sparks. Each team has a different set-up on the arena floor. It is up to the crew overseen by the Staples Center operations department to reconfigure the floor for each game. Several times a year they must make the changeover twice or more over one weekend in between games. Last Saturday afternoon, while fans were still heading for the exits after the Clippers' 103-100 loss to the San Antonio Spurs, 65 workers began transforming the arena for the Kings' game against the Calgary Flames that night.

The name of the day: William M. Jennings . Kings goalie Jonathan Quick is on the verge of succeeding last season's Jennings Trophy winners, the Blackhawks' Corey Crawford and Ray Emery . The award goes to "the goalkeeper(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against it. " The Kings and the Bruins are one-two in the Jennings race and the Kings will win it if they allow two or less goals in their season finale Saturday against the Ducks at Staples Center.

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.

Kobe Bryant was annoyed. Really, really annoyed. The Lakers traded Steve Blake before the February deadline, immediately sending a dissatisfied Bryant to Twitter. He said he was "not cool" with the trade "AT ALL," hitting caps lock for effect and also calling Blake a "psycho competitor. " Blake is still appreciative two months later. He'll play with his new team, Golden State, against the Lakers in his return Friday to Staples Center. "Whenever you have support like that from a teammate, it feels great, especially from one of the greatest," Blake said in a phone interview.

How well will Phil Jackson do in New York? Quite well, I'm sure; after all, he has Jim Buss' cellphone number and a number of castoffs to send west. Lynn McGinnis Glendale :: How to become a millionaire? Just ask Jim Buss. He managed to turn a billion-dollar enterprise into a million-dollar one. Sam Austin Bermuda Dunes :: So the owner of the Knicks believes it is worth $60 million to have Phil Jackson watch the team lose for the next five years? Some might say even that amount isn't enough.

Blake Griffin was talking to friends in a Staples Center hallway after the Clippers' victory over the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night when Jermaine O'Neal walked up and got into Griffin's face. Griffin was posing for pictures when he was approached by the angry backup center for the Warriors. “Why you going to walk up on me like that?” Griffin asked O'Neal. “Leave that ... on the court. Leave that ... on the court.” O'Neal snarled, shook Griffin's hand and walked away.

Blake Griffin sat in his chair in the Clippers interview room after their victory over the Phoenix Suns on Monday night with his lips pursed and jaw tight. Griffin was still ticked about the takedown by Suns forward P.J. Tucker in the fourth quarter that left the two of them wrestling to get free of each other while down on the Staples Center court. It was yet another game in which an opponent had taken a shot at Griffin, but he maintained his composure instead of fighting back.
