The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the hip hotel that claims to foster "just the right amount of wrong," is giving away free Wednesday night stays -- for those who act fast. The online flash sale started about five minutes ago (as in 6 a.m. Wednesday -- that's today) and ends in 24 hours. So ask yourself: Could Wednesday be the new Friday? The deal: Wednesdays on Us is just that, a free night's stay at the Cosmopolitan with the purchase of a room on Tuesday or Thursday. Guests must pay in full and in advance, and no refunds if you change your mind.

The way the Ducks tell it, their interest in beating the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday is rooted mostly in the perks of what accompanies winning the Pacific Division and not about avoiding a first-round playoff series against the Kings. “No one's ever mentioned that about the Kings,” Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said. “The guys have fought long and hard to get to first place. … It's about the satisfaction of playing for six months and being the best.” By beating the Sharks in any fashion at Honda Center, the Ducks would clinch their second consecutive Pacific Division title and at least the No. 2 Western Conference playoff seeding.

It's been a rough week. A few days ago, at UCLA's Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital, 6-year-old Jani toppled a food cart and was confined to her room. She slammed her head against the floor, opening a bloody cut that sent her into hysterics. Later, she kicked the hospital therapy dog. Jani normally likes animals. But most of her animal friends -- cats, rats, dogs and birds -- are phantoms that only she can see. January Schofield has schizophrenia. Potent psychiatric drugs -- in doses that would stagger most adults -- seem to skip off her. She is among the rarest of the rare: a child seemingly born mentally ill. She suffers from delusions, hallucinations and paroxysms of rage so severe that not even her parents feel safe.

VANCOUVER, Canada - Three games remaining in the regular season on the yellow brick road to the playoffs, and the Kings finally catch a break in the schedule. They don't play again until Wednesday. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter is always mulling schedules and timetables - maybe it's the lasting influence of his early farm years - and he pondered what to do during the three days between games. One consideration was having a mini-camp in scenic Banff, Alberta, before Wednesday's game at Calgary.

KILLEEN, Texas - Beyond the mystifying question of why a person goes on a rampage to kill innocent people, residents of this military town have to deal with an even more vexing one: Why does it keep happening to them? "There's a psychological toll on this town," Terrence Barksdale, 44, said at his tattoo shop just outside the base. "This is the second time. The next person might try something even more asinine. " With two long wars, his staff had already gotten accustomed to the somber task of regularly inking memorial tattoos for soldiers who died in combat.

Desperate Hockey Teams, Part II. The other entry in the three-way battle between Minnesota, Phoenix and Dallas for two wild-card playoff spots in the Western Conference, the Coyotes, visits the Kings on Wednesday night. It's no coincidence that Minnesota and Phoenix are the only teams to beat the Kings this season when the Kings led after two periods. They both did so in March with the Wild rallying for a 3-2 win Monday night. "It's hard but you just have to realize the desperation of teams," Kings center Mike Richards said.

PHOENIX - Blake Griffin and Jamal Crawford are considered doubtful to play against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night, the Clippers said. Griffin missed a game for the first time this season Monday in Minnesota because of back spasms and is considered a longshot to play against the Suns. Crawford also missed the game against the Timberwolves because of a sore left Achilles' tendon. Earlier in March, he missed eight of nine games because of soreness in his left calf. "It all depends on getting treatment and getting some work in," Crawford said after Monday's game.
