The View from Anaheim


Lisa Dillman: Jarret Stoll scores in overtime to lift Kings past Ducks, 3-2

“This was a franchise-record fifth consecutive overtime game for the Ducks.”

Lance Pugmire: Ducks deal with tough calls in loss to Kings

“A goaltender interference penalty called against Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf in the third period and an early overtime hooking call against Ducks defenseman Hampus Lindholm were each followed by Kings power-play goals.”


Eric Stephens: Kings give a little extra to beat Ducks in rematch

“Still, the Ducks (11-3-4) were again in position to win, grabbing the lead twice on goals by Emerson Etem and Ryan Kesler in the second. But they were left gritting their teeth through two penalty calls that the Kings would use to their advantage.”

Eric Stephens: Ducks’ fifth overtime game in a row is a franchise first

“Perry missed his fifth consecutive while Beauchemin missed his third and will be out for longer, having just returned home after getting intravenous fluids at an Orange County hospital.”

Jeff Miller: Perry skating is better than Perry sitting for Ducks

“Now, a question: Is it too early to start rooting for the Ducks and Kings to meet again in this season’s playoffs? Thanks to the Ducks’ final performance back in May, they do still owe us a competitive Game 7.”


Daniel AC: Gameday Recap: Kings Dive Past Ducks

“Getzy got knocked off balance by Clifford, and nudged Quick who dropped like a 1950s kid hearing a nuclear bomb siren. Getzlaf to the penalty box, and the Kings power play to the ice.”
