This Week in the Pacific Division: Kings win inside and out

The Kings win streak is now at seven games, and it doesn't matter if they play in an arena or in a football stadium

Another week has passed, and the Kings still haven't lost another game.

L.A. keeps making its charge up the standings, and playing outdoors didn't phase them at all. The highlight of the week comes from that outdoor game, as Jonathan Quick had to make a last-second save to preserve the Kings' win.

It was a pretty slow week with several teams only playing two games. Here's our look at the best and worst performances from around the Pacific.

Anaheim Ducks (38-16-7, 3-1-0 this week)

Stud: Kyle Palmieri had a point in each of the four games this week, racking up a goal and four assists as Anaheim extended its lead in the division and continues to pursue the Predators for the top spot in the Western Conference.

Dud: Even though he played over 17 minutes in each game, Ryan Kesler failed to record a point this week.

Vancouver Canucks (34-22-3, 2-1-0 this week)

Stud: One-upping Palmieri, Henrik Sedin had at least TWO points in each game this week (2G, 4A). He just edged his twin by a point.

Dud: Chris Higgins saw his playing time decrease in each game as he failed to record a point all week.

Los Angeles Kings (28-18-12, 2-0-0 this week)

Stud: The Kings have now won seven-straight, and Jonathan Quick's been in net for all of them. For the two games this week, Quick stopped 73 of the 75 shots he faced.

Dud: Jarret Stoll had no points, and went 11-16 in the faceoff circle. There's really not a lot to complain about with this team right now.

Calgary Flames (32-23-4, 0-1-1 this week)

Stud: With two goals this week, Lance Bouma gets stud honors. He also led the team with 11 hits.

Dud: Curtis Glencross had five giveaways to counteract that one assist he had.

San Jose Sharks (30-23-8, 1-2-0 this week)

Stud: Not a great week for San Jose, so Joe Pavelski's three assists leads the way for the Sharks.

Dud: Another scoreless week for Joe Thornton. He's gotta turn it up if the Sharks want to make a run.

Arizona Coyotes (20-33-7, 0-2-0 this week)

Stud: Michael Stone had one of the two goals for the Yotes this week, and looked ok against New Jersey. This team stinks.

Dud: Shane Doan will stay here until he records a point again. We may be here a while.

Edmonton Oilers (17-34-10, 1-2-0 this week)

Stud: With two goals and an assist, Teddy Purcell is once again the stud of the week for Edmonton.

Dud: With four giveaways and no points, Benoit Pouliot finds himself here. There are plenty of Oilers that can go here though.

Thanks for dropping by. Maybe when this rolls around next week, the Kings will have finally lost a game. And the Coyotes will have won one.
