Art Williams is the first to admit his limitations, one of which isn't money. When he said Vincent Lecavalier was going to be "the Michael Jordan of hockey," he wasn't slighting Wayne Gretzky or Maurice Richard or Gordie Howe or anyone else in the Hall of Fame. "I didn't know hockey," says Williams, who was completing a $118-million deal to buy the Ice Palace and its chief tenant, the Lightning, when it made Lecavalier [luh-KAV-uhl-YAY] the No. 1 pick in the NHL entry draft in June.

The Kings held a pregame ceremony at center ice Saturday for defenseman Robyn Regehr, who was about to play his 1,000th career game. But there was little else for Regehr or his teammates to celebrate once the game against the Philadelphia Flyers began at Staples Center, as the Kings' missing offense remained nowhere to be found. Goals by former King Wayne Simmonds and Claude Giroux gave the Flyers a 2-0 victory over the Kings (30-21-6), L.A.'s eighth loss in its last nine games.

Goals by Wayne Simmonds and Claude Giroux gave the Philadelphia Flyers a 2-0 victory over the struggling Kings on Saturday at Staples Center. It was the eighth loss in the last nine games for the Kings, whose ability to score has all but disappeared. Simmonds, who was traded by the Kings to Philadelphia in 2011, scored with 12:12 left in the second period. His teammate, Vincent Lecavalier, took a pass and appeared set to shoot, drawing Kings goalie Jonathan Quick away from the net. But Lecavalier instead passed to Simmonds who converted a wide-open shot.

New Jersey's Patrik Elias redeemed himself and wiped the frown from Coach Pat Burns' face with one shot. Elias made up for a penalty late in the third period by scoring the winning goal 1 minute 16 seconds into overtime to give the New Jersey Devils a 3-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Friday night at East Rutherford, N.J. Burns, the Devils' perfectionist coach, shot Elias a glare when the wing was called for playing with an illegal stick late in the third period.
