This post has been updated. See below for details. VANCOUVER, Canada -- Greetings from Vancouver, where it's chilly but sunny. The big news from the Kings' morning skate at Rogers Arena was that they planned to activate forward Jeff Carter off injured reserve before Monday night's game against the Canucks, and they will have Carter skate in the warmups with 12 other forwards. If all goes well, Carter -- who has been out of the lineup because of a foot injury -- would play for the first time since Oct. 30. Carter had five goals and nine points in 14 games before he was injured.

CALGARY, Canada  - The numbers are quite close to his point total two years ago, then considered a downward trend for a big-name center. At least there was a tangible reason for the Kings' center Mike Richards' recording 44 points in 74 games in 2011-12. He missed most of December of that season because of a concussion, probably came back too quickly and didn't really find his form until he dominated the likes of the Vancouver Canucks' Ryan Kesler in the opening round of the playoffs.

VANCOUVER, Canada --- Finishing in the top eight in the West had taken so much out of the Kings that Coach Darryl Sutter wasn't sure what his players had in reserve before their first-round series against the top-seeded Vancouver Canucks. They had overcome a 7-8-1 start at home and repeated dips out of playoff position but then lost their final two games. Sutter, who took over for Terry Murray on Dec. 22, wasn't sure if his team had gone as far as it could manage.

VANCOUVER, Canada - It was a bold stroke by Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau, putting 20-year-old John Gibson in goal for his NHL debut Monday night with a division title in the balance. Sixty complete minutes of hockey later by Gibson and his teammates, Boudreau's move looked like his most brilliant of the season as the Ducks defeated the Vancouver Canucks, 3-0, at Rogers Arena. Gibson, with 18 saves, became the youngest goalie since Daren Puppa 29 years ago to post a shutout in his NHL debut, as a Ducks' defense Boudreau referred to as "spotty" during Monday's morning skate rose up to protect the youngster with 22 blocked shots.

It wasn't the first Vancouver homecoming for the Mighty Ducks' Ron Wilson, Anatoli Semenov and Garry Valk. Just the first happy one. The Ducks were still smarting from three consecutive one-goal losses, but they built a firm cushion Friday with a season-high six goals and held off the Canucks for a 6-3 victory in front of 15,550 at the Pacific Coliseum.

The Kings have granted other NHL teams permission to interview assistant coach John Stevens for their respective head coaching vacancies. The Vancouver Canucks appear to be the front-runner for Stevens, who was the Philadelphia Flyers' coach for parts of four seasons before he joined the Kings' staff in June 2010. He has spent the last three seasons guiding the Kings' highly regarded defense corps and strong penalty-killing unit. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter said Monday he considers Stevens "a head coach with us" because of the responsibilities Stevens has fulfilled.

VANCOUVER, Canada - This had the feel of a nicely paced scrimmage between the Kings and the Canucks with not much on the line. Then came the third period and an intense hockey game suddenly erupted on Saturday night at Rogers Arena. Kings defenseman Matt Greene got hit with a puck and his skate was soon bloodied. He left the game, came back to play and watched his team lose it with 1:23 remaining as Brad Richardson, the former King, gave the Canucks a 2-1 win and helped Vancouver avoid official playoff elimination.

VANCOUVER, Canada - All the years of near misses, tedious bus rides and one excruciating waiting game faded away on Saturday morning for Andrew Campbell. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter summoned the 26-year-old defenseman and told him that he would be making his NHL debut, against the Vancouver Canucks. Televised on "Hockey Night in Canada," no less. "I got like a shiver right down my body, 'Wow, This is going to be the night,'" Campbell said after the morning skate. Arguably, this was the most important conversation of Campbell's hockey life.

VANCOUVER, Canada - First place in the Pacific Division became the Ducks' again Saturday night, when they returned to the brand of play that put them there in the first place. "It's a goal" to win the division, said center Saku Koivu, one of five Ducks players who scored in a 5-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena. "We're more trying to pay attention to our game, the way we want to play, the way it has to be," Koivu said. Ducks rookie goalie Frederik Andersen stopped 31 of 32 shots as Anaheim established a new team record for most road wins (23)

Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the last week: + In his first start for Florida after being traded by the Vancouver Canucks, goaltender Roberto Luongo stopped 25 shots for the Panthers' first regular-season shutout in nearly two years. Luongo, who played for Florida earlier in his career, found his old Pink Panther-themed mask for just the right note. + Ryan Miller is 4-0 since the Blues acquired him from Buffalo last week, helping St. Louis erase the Ducks' once-commanding lead in the West.

  The Ducks' dominance sent the Vancouver Canucks into a meltdown Wednesday, and worked the record-checkers into a frenzy. Producing a franchise-best goals total - including a team-record six on the power play against a team that started the night as the NHL's best penalty killing unit - the Ducks routed Vancouver 9-1 at Honda Center. “Did I see this coming? No,” Vancouver Coach John Tortorella said afterward. “There's no sense in dissecting it. The best thing we can do is get out of here.” One game after committing 69 minutes of penalties in a 1-0 loss to the Kings Monday at Staples Center, Vancouver (24-15-9)

A sick Jonas Hiller missed Wednesday's morning skate and is a game-time decision to play goalie for the Ducks against the Vancouver Canucks, meaning his 14-game winning streak may be next put to the test Friday against defending Stanley Cup-champion Chicago. Hiller “wasn't feeling good this morning, so we said, 'Stay home,' ” Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said Wednesday. “We'll know this afternoon, whether he still feels flu-ish or if he's good to go.” Rookie Frederik Andersen, the Ducks' winning goalie at Nashville on Thursday who had returned to minor-league Norfolk to play two weekend games, was recalled and was first off the ice at Wednesday's skate before fellow rookie John Gibson, indicating Andersen will start if Hiller's a no-go.

Faced with an oversupply of good goaltenders, the Kings on Wednesday traded Ben Scrivens to the Edmonton Oilers for a third-round pick in this year's entry draft. The move, announced after the team practiced at El Segundo, wasn't surprising because of Jonathan Quick's return to top form after a groin strain and the emergence of rookie Martin Jones as a capable NHL goalie. Jones was recalled from Manchester (N.H.) of the American Hockey League and was expected to meet the Kings in St. Louis for the start of their four-game trip.

The Vancouver Canucks nearly ended the Ducks' home points streak -- now at 19-0-2 -- on Jan. 5. The Canucks jumped to a two-goal first-period lead, slowing the game down and moving to the verge of an upset, falling in overtime only after a tying goal by Ducks center Nick Bonino with 87 seconds left in regulation and Corey Perry's overtime winner in the final seconds. “They shut us down in the first period, but I thought we got to our game after that, forechecking hard,” Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano said after Tuesday's practice for Wednesday's 7:30 p.m. rematch at Honda Center.
