February 2 postgame notes

-Jonathan Bernier recorded his first appearance in a game since Saturday, March 31, a 4-3 shootout loss to Minnesota. His last win came on Saturday, March 17, a 4-2 win versus Nashville.

-Bernier has entered a game in relief seven times in his career, posting a 3.21 GAA (243 minutes / 13 goals against) and an .874 Sv% (103 SA / 90 Sv)

-The last time Jonathan Quick was pulled in a game was on Saturday, December 17, 2011, an 8-2 loss at Detroit, when he allowed three goals on seven shots in nine minutes.

-The Kings have power play goals in three straight games, including four total over that span (3x Brown, Carter).

-Saturday’s game ended a streak of 10 consecutive LA-Anaheim games decided by one or two goals. The last Kings-Ducks game decided by at least a three-goal margin was a 4-1 Kings win at Staples Center on Sunday, December 26, 2010.

-This equaled the highest scoring game between Los Angeles and Anaheim in the 109-game series history. The two clubs have combined for 11 goals on two previous occasions – Friday, November 8, 1996, a 7-4 Ducks victory, and Wednesday, January 22, 2003, a 6-5 Ducks victory. In addition, Anaheim’s seven goals equaled the club’s highest goal output against Los Angeles in club history (also November 8, 1996).

-The Kings are 50-40-11-8 (W-L-T-OTL) against the Ducks since the rivalry began in 1993-94.
