The view from Anaheim - LA Kings Insider

Orange County Register

Final: Jonathan Quick sharp in return as Kings beat Ducks, 4-1

“Andrew Cogliano scored a first-period goal for the Ducks, who were 21-1-1 when leading after two periods going into the game. Patrick Eaves was scoreless, but had five shots on goal in 16:09 of ice time in his Ducks debut after Friday’s trade from the Dallas Stars.”

Miller: Ducks get beat up late

“In an affair that featured two fights, 66 official hits and immeasurable amounts of testosterone and dislike, the Kings landed all the shots that counted in the third period, stunning the Ducks, 4-1, Saturday at Staples Center.”

Third-period mistakes sink Ducks in loss to Kings

“Carter, who absorbed a one-punch knockdown from the Ducks’ Ryan Kesler, got some revenge where it really counted as he and Toffoli got loose on an odd-man rush, with the center wrapping a backhand pass around a sliding Fowler to Toffoli for the winger’s second goal.”

Quick’s return highlights Kings’ victory over Ducks

“Anaheim has not won consecutive games since Jan.19. Its frustration was capsulized by Corey Perry’s late two-hand slash to a prone Quick. The Ducks were 22-1-1 when leading after two periods. ‘You can’t do it every time,’ Fowler said. ‘Credit to them. You could obviously tell that they were hungrier and more desperate in the third…'”

Jonathan Quick’s return sparks Kings in win over Ducks

“It was tough to fault Quick on the Ducks’ only goal by Andrew Cogliano at the 16:53 mark of the first period on a 3-on-2 rush. The rest of the way, Quick didn’t allow much at all and gave his team a chance to find its offense, which the Kings did with four goals in the third period.”
