DETROIT -- Greetings from Detroit, where it's snowing lightly. The Kings' morning skate at Joe Louis Arena was optional, but it appeared that their lineup Saturday against the Red Wings will be the same as it was in their 4-1 victory over St. Louis on Thursday. Forwards Tanner Pearson and Linden Vey remained on the ice with goaltender Martin Jones for extra work, a sign they'll be scratched. Coach Darryl Sutter left the arena without speaking to the media. It was a jolt to walk into the Red Wings' locker room and see many unfamiliar names affixed to the stalls.

DETROIT - Kings defenseman Drew Doughty raised his right arm automatically to indicate that a shot by Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall had bounced off the protective netting above the glass before it hit goaltender Jonathan Quick's back and dropped into the net with 26.1 seconds left in the third period Saturday. Doughty's posture was almost casual. The Kings were protecting a one-goal lead in the final minute, but he expected the referee to blow the whistle for the stoppage that's supposed to result when the puck hits the netting and negate the apparent goal.

It didn't make up for their disappointment over losing Game 7 of their first-round playoff series to Detroit at the Honda Center last spring, but the Ducks had many reasons to be pleased Sunday with their 1-0 home victory over the Red Wings. In winning their seventh straight game and 17th in the past 18, the Ducks remained the only NHL team that hasn't lost in regulation at home this season, at 19-0-2. They also increased their league-leading point total to 75. They're only the fifth team since the 1973-74 season to record points in each of their first 21 home games.

Not once since the Ducks distanced themselves from the Western Conference pack had goaltender Jonas Hiller recorded a shutout, but their plentiful production meant he never had to blank an opponent to be sure of a win. Sunday night, with their legs tiring in their third game in four days, the Ducks needed him to get a shutout. And he did. Hiller stopped 22 shots and Andrew Cogliano scored off a slick setup from Saku Koivu in the second period as the Ducks defeated the Detroit Red Wings, 1-0, at Honda Center to extend their winning streak to seven and long-term dominance to 17-1.

One bad line change, one well-placed rebound and one opportunistic, hard-charging forward. That was the game-changing play between the Kings and the Red Wings on Saturday night at Staples Center. Tomas Tatar of Slovakia scored the game-winner in the third period with 7 minutes 54 seconds to play, giving the injury-depleted Red Wings a 3-1 victory over the Kings. The breakdown came even before Kings goalie Jonathan Quick kicked the rebound of a Riley Sheahan shot right onto the stick of the on-rushing Tatar.

Is Justin Timberlake back? OK, so the superstar singer-actor hasn't exactly been away lately; indeed, it might be Timberlake's overexposure this year that led the Recording Academy to snub "The 20/20 Experience" in the recently announced nominations for the upcoming Grammy Awards. (Then again, with the Recording Academy, general cluelessness is always a reliable bet.) Yet Timberlake has spent much of the past few months in celebrity mode as opposed to musician mode. Even headlining Staples Center just before Thanksgiving, he seemed more like a Hollywood king holding court than like a dude playing songs.

Dustin Penner might not be familiar with all of the details, but when the forward was asked about the Ducks' visit to Detroit tonight, he figured out all he needed to know. "Is that the first time we've played them since they eliminated us?" asked Penner, who spent last season with the Kings. "Oh, then it is a big game. " The Ducks (23-7-5) created this season's motto, "Unfinished Business," because of their disappointment over last season's first-round playoff exit against the seventh-seeded Red Wings.

Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the previous week: + Chicago wing Patrick Kane is giving Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby a good challenge for the scoring title. Kane's assist Sunday in the Blackhawks' 3-1 victory over the Kings extended his point streak to nine games and 21 of his last 22. Through Sunday's games he had 19 goals and 45 points, one point behind Crosby. + The Vancouver Canucks seem to have grasped Coach John Tortorella's defensive intensity.

OTTAWA - The most impressive aspect of rookie right wing Tyler Toffoli's recent play isn't that he has earned points in three straight games and four of the last five, because he has always been a scorer. He personifies one of hockey's great, quaint sayings - that the puck seems to find him. He was a prolific scorer in the junior ranks and in his one full season with Manchester (N.H.) of the American Hockey League, and he has eight goals and 15 points in 18 games with the Kings this season.
