Kings’ Jeff Carter ‘proud’ to reach 700-point plateau

LOS ANGELES — Milestones are among the few things the Kings have been able to celebrate this season. To name a few, Anze Kopitar scored his 300th career goal on Jan. 5 against Edmonton; Ilya Kovalchuk recorded his 400th assist on Oct. 7 against Detroit; Dustin Brown played in his 1,100th NHL regular-season game on March 2 against Chicago and is now at 1,106 (before Monday) – just five away from tying Dave Taylor for No. 1 on the Kings’ all-time list. Another was reached Saturday when Jeff Carter...

Penguins Make March a Month of Milestones

Ducks’ Corey Perry regaining scoring touch as season winds down

When he was at his best, when he was piling up goals in great numbers and wreaking havoc upon opposing goaltenders, Ducks right wing Corey Perry was stationed close to the net. He waited for something to happen and then he pounced. If nothing happened, then he made something happen. They called him “The Worm” because he wormed his way into the action. Perry didn’t have the hardest shot, but his legs were always moving and he had a goal-scorer’s touch with the puck on his stick. One season he sco...

Ducks say Ryan Kesler could be done for the season

DENVER — More and more, as the days have passed, it seems likely that Ryan Kesler’s season is over. Kesler hasn’t skated because of an ongoing hip issue since the Ducks’ loss March 6 to the St. Louis Blues and he didn’t join his teammates for their trip to play the Arizona Coyotes and the Colorado Avalanche. “I don’t know if we’re going to see him again this year,” said Bob Murray, the Ducks’ general manager and interim coach. Asked after Friday’s morning skate at Pepsi Center whether it would b...

Ducks Prospect Comtois Shows Needed Leadership

Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray’s decision to send Max Comtois — who was 19 years old at the time — back to his junior team in November was a difficult one considering the success he had at the NHL level. Fortunately, Comtois’ move to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s Drummondville Voltigeurs hasn’t been a bad thing for Anaheim. In the aftermath of team Canada’s early exit from the IIHF World Junior Championship, Comtois has shown leadership and competitiveness that the Ducks will...

2011 NHL Entry Draft: Five Forgotten Picks

The 2011 NHL Entry Draft in St. Paul is notable for a number of reasons. First, it was the second of three straight drafts the Edmonton Oilers picked first overall, selecting Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Second, it’s notable for being where True North Sports & Entertainment, which bought the Atlanta Thrashers a month earlier, revealed they would call their team the Jets and made their first-ever pick, selecting — controversially at the time — Mark Scheifele over Sean Couturier. Third, it’s notable for t...

Coyotes Down Ducks – Hinostroza Gets Hat Trick

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Vinnie Hinostroza’s first career hat trick sent the surging Arizona Coyotes to a 6-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night. Hinostroza scored his third goal of the night with 51 seconds left, and hats came flying out of the crowd onto the ice. Jason Demers added a goal and an assist for the Coyotes, who have won 10 of 12. Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Mario Kempe also scored, and Alex Goligoski had two assists. Arizona’s victory coupled with Minnesota’s loss to Dallas moved t...

Tyler Toffoli hopeful Kings can end forgettable season by playing spoiler

LOS ANGELES — Thirteen games left, 17 points out of a postseason berth. That was the Kings’ plight ahead of their game Thursday night against Nashville that opened a five-game homestand at Staples Center. Although the Kings are not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, they might as well be, so they have to find something to play for down the stretch of a forgettable season. Forward Tyler Toffoli knows what’s in it for himself, as well as his teammates. “There’s an opportunity for us to p...

Ducks say they have plenty to play for down the stretch

ANAHEIM — Technically, the Ducks remain alive in the Western Conference playoff race. Realistically, they’re out of it and have been since last month. So, what’s left to play for in their final 11 games, including Thursday’s date with the Coyotes in Glendale, Arizona? Pride, for one thing. The Ducks veterans aren’t used to missing the playoffs. “We’re competitive people, so we want to make sure we’re playing as well as we can no matter what time of year and no matter what kind of circumstances,”...

Kings defenseman Paul LaDue knows consistency is needed

EL SEGUNDO — Kings defenseman Paul LaDue has shown promise. But like the rest of his team, he’d never write home about the season he’s had. LaDue, 26, had gotten into just 27 of the team’s 69 games ahead of Thursday’s against Nashville at Staples Center. He’s missed nine games because of injury, but he’s also had 33 healthy scratches. That’s not what LaDue had in mind at the outset, but it’s the way things have gone. To him, the remedy is obvious. “I’d say just consistency – defending well every...

Coyotes Weekly: Still Scratchin’ and Clawin’

With 12 games left to play, the Arizona Coyotes woke up this morning in the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference. Despite all of their injuries – they lead the NHL in man-games lost – this team has hung around (or scratched and clawed, if you will) and has emerged as a threat to not only qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2012, but to also make some noise once they’re there.
