Ducks 6 - Kings 5

Ouch. This one hurts. The Kings came back from a three goal deficit to take a 5-3 lead before giving up three in the third to lose. That marks the third time in the last however many games that the Kings have scored four or more goals and lost. You just can't do that in the NHL today. I don't know if its poor defense, bad goaltending, lack of hard work, or what. The answer likely lies somewhere in between. They are now seven points out of a playoff spot, and things don't appear to be getting any better. Both goalies (Storr and Potvin) were responsible for three goals allowed, so it's equal opportunity sucking right now. If they don't take at least 10 points in their next 8 games, I think we can close the book on this season.
