Playoff Tickets on Sale Sunday

Individual tickets for the first two rounds of the playoffs will go on sale Sunday at 10 a.m., the Kings announced Thursday. Random priority numbers will be issued beginning at 9 a.m. at the Great Western Forum parking lot. Tickets can also be purchased through Ticketmaster outlets or by calling (213) 365-3600.

The Kings' penalty-killing unit has not been getting the job done lately. The two first-period power-play goals by San Jose on Thursday night marked the fifth consecutive game that an opponent has registered a goal with a man advantage.

San Jose, which began the game with the 22nd-ranked power play in the league, scored four power-play goals in three games against the Kings in the last 11 days.

In 70 games this season, the Kings have given up 52 goals short-handed, good to be ranked 15th in the league.

The Kings will begin a six-game trip in Calgary on Saturday and injured players Ray Ferraro (knee), Matt Johnson (biceps), Nathan LaFayette (post-concussion syndrome) and Doug Zmolek (shoulder) are expected to travel and could be back in the lineup before the team returns to play Edmonton at the Forum on April 9. . . . Former King and current Shark center Bernie Nicholls recorded his 1,200th point when he got an assist on former King Tony Granato's first-period goal.
