The Ducks battled the Kings Saturday night in a not-unimportant game. Anaheim was coming off a loss to Calgary, and the Kings had lost two straight—to Calgary and the Predators. The Ducks had gained points in four of five games, including three wins. The Kings had earned points in three of five, with one OT. Each team has dealt with injury, but the Kings far less so than Anaheim, who have lost just about every one of their top players as the season’s first half has gone on.
