With the weary poise of a team that has already been through three seven-game series this spring, the Kings insisted they're not bothered by their inability to finish a sweep in New York.

A few minutes after John Gibson finished his NHL playoff debut by shutting out a vaunted postseason power, the Anaheim Ducks' rookie goalie barely seemed to register a pulse, let alone any visible excitement.
Staring down the prospect of an 0-3 series deficit, the Anaheim Ducks finally figured out a way to beat the Los Angeles Kings.
The Anaheim Ducks could be without three more injured regulars when they attempt to even their second-round series against the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 on Saturday.
Anze Kopitar politely disagrees with the idea that the Los Angeles Kings' top line has dominated the Anaheim Ducks' best scorers in their second-round playoff series.
