The Anaheim Ducks will have a chance Sunday to do what the rival Los Angeles Kings could not do -- grab two points from the New Jersey Devils.
The teams met once earlier this season in New Jersey and the Devils prevailed 5-3.
The New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings enter their game Saturday afternoon at Staples Center in similar situations.
They're both clinging to playoff spots, but might also have the opportunity to move up in the standings.
The Devils hold the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference, three points in front of the Florida Panthers, who host the Edmonton Oilers about two hours before the Devils play the Kings.
After going up big early, the Devils didn't look back and ran all over the Pacific Division-leading Golden Knights, 8-3.
LAS VEGAS -- The milestones just keep on coming for the expansion Vegas Golden Knights.
The Pacific Division leaders return home to host the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night at T-Mobile after an impressive 4-1 road trip on the east coast that was capped by a 3-2 victory at Philadelphia on Monday night.
That win gave the Golden Knights (45-19-5) 45 points on the road, breaking the NHL record for an expansion team (44) set by the Florida Panthers in 1993-94 with five more road dates still left on the schedule. >> Read more

Taylor Hall's club-record 26-game point streak ended Thursday night in the New Jersey Devils' 3-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.
Hall will try to get back on the scoresheet against the NHL's hottest team Saturday night when New Jersey starts a potentially season-defining six-game road trip against the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena.
Hall's 30 goals and 44 assists have landed him squarely in the middle of Hart Trophy conversation. For Hall to become the favorite to win the award, he probably needs a big finish that lifts the Devils (34-26-8) into a surprising Eastern Conference playoff bid.
As a 19-year-old rookie from Switzerland, Nico Hischier has had to acclimate himself with the physical grind of the NHL.
The no. 1 overall pick has been durable this season as he has played in each of the Devils' 68 games so far this year. He admits that the NHL is incomparable to any other league in the world.
"It's tough for sure," Hischier said, via Chris Ryan of NJ.com. "There are some tough battles, but I think unlike any league like that, at the end of the year it gets harder. You can't compare other leagues. It's tough but you've just got to find a way to help the team."
Thursday night could be a real goaltenders nightmare as several of the league's hottest scoring threats take to the ice when the New Jersey Devils host the Winnipeg Jets at the Prudential Center.
The Devils (34-25-8) feature the scorching Taylor Hall, who has at least one point in every game he's played since the calendar flipped to 2018. After picking up a pair of assists in Tuesday's 6-4 victory over the Montreal Canadiens, Hall has points in a league season-high 19 consecutive games since coming back from an injury, and has at least one point in 26 straight appearances.
"He's been far and away MVP for us," Devils center Brian Boyle said of Hall, who leads the team with a career-high 30 goals and 74 points. "He's an MVP candidate. He should be at the top of the list, in my opinion. What he's done is remarkable."
The Devils opened the game with four straight goals and held on for a 6-4 win over the Canadiens on Tuesday night. >> Box score
NEWARK, N.J. -- The last 25 times Taylor Hall has taken the ice, he has registered at least one point. In the last 30 years, he's in select company as the eighth different player to put together a streak this long.

NEWARK, N.J. -- The points are piling up for Taylor Hall, but the wins aren't necessarily accompanying his production for the New Jersey Devils.

Taylor Hall's power play goal against the Panthers on Thursday night extended his point streak to 16 consecutive games, establishing a new club record.
Patrick Elias (1999-00) and Brian Gionta (2005-06) held the previous mark with a point in 15 straight games.
Hall has actually tallied a point in 23 consecutive contests, but he missed three games during that time with an injured finger.

SUNRISE, Fla. -- In the past three games, the Florida Panthers have taken down the two-time reigning Presidents' Trophy-winning Washington Capitals, the two-time reigning Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins and the Toronto Maple Leafs, who are in second place in the Eastern Conference.
In fact, all three of those teams are in playoff position, which is more that can be said for the surging Panthers (29-25-6), who have won 10 of their past 13 games to put themselves in contention.
On Thursday night, the Panthers will play host to a fourth straight team in playoff position, the New Jersey Devils (33-22-8) at the BB&T Center. >> Read more

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins and the New Jersey Devils, who beat Monday's NHL deadline by each making a splashy deal over the weekend, meet Tuesday night in a Metropolitan Division clash at PPG Paints Arena.
The Devils acquired F Pat Maroon from the Oilers for a third-round pick with the year to be determined, per SportsNet's Mike Johnston.
Maroon, 29, began his career with the Ducks back in 2011, where he spent four seasons. He made his way to Edmonton in 2015, and after a quick stint back in Anaheim that season, he returned to the Oilers in 2016 for a full season. Maroon totaled 42 points (27 goals, 15 assists) in 81 games.
The left-winger has 30 points (14 goals, 16 assists) in 57 games this season. He has been a healthy scratch for the Oilers in the past couple games.
The Devils extended the contract of coach John Hynes earlier this season, co-owner Josh Harris announced on Saturday.
There will be major subplots from the organization's past and present taking place Saturday night when the New Jersey Devils host the New York Islanders at the Prudential Center.
The Devils have acquired F Michael Grabner from the Rangers for a second-round draft pick and prospect Yegor Rykov, according to Darren Dreger of TSN.
Grabner, 30, leads the Rangers in goals this season with 25. On the Devils, only Taylor Hall (26 goals) has more. Grabner also has 6 assists, bringing his season's point total to 31. At the end of this season, Grabner will be an unrestricted free agent.
Since joining the Rangers in 2016, Grabner has regained his scoring form. His first season with the Blueshirts, he scored 27 times after scoring a total of 29 times the previous three seasons combined. His career high in goals is 34, which came in his second year in the league with the Islanders in 2010/11.
To say that Taylor Hall has the complete attention of the Minnesota Wild heading into Thursday's game against the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center is an understatement.
Following practice Wednesday, Hall was pretty much all Wild coach Bruce Boudreau and his players talked about.
Hall is as hot as any player in the league right now, recording at least one point in all 19 games he played since the calendar flipped to 2018. His goal in Tuesday's 2-1 home-ice loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets extended his red-hot personal scoring streak and gives him 13 goals, 14 assists and 27 points since Jan. 2.
Sergei Bobrovsky saved 30 of 31 shots to help the Blue Jackets eke out a 2-1 win over the Devils on Tuesday at the Prudential Center. >> Box score
What a difference a year makes.
Last season, the New Jersey Devils finished at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings with 70 points. This season, they've matched that total in 59 games and look to add to their point total Tuesday night when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets at the Prudential Center.
RALEIGH, N.C. -- So many of the good feelings that had formed recently for the Carolina Hurricanes have been put aside.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Eddie Lack made 48 saves and the New Jersey Devils beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Saturday night.
TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Lightning lean on their top players and the New Jersey Devils continue to see their top rookie become a key contributor late in the season when the teams meet Saturday at Amalie Arena.
The league-leading Lightning enter the game with three consecutive home wins after beating division rival Detroit on Thursday behind the strong play of the big three -- Nikita Kucherov, Steven Stamkos and Victor Hedman.
Kucherov tied a career high with four points and three assists, Stamkos scored twice and Hedman added three assists as the trio combined for nine points in a 4-1 victory.
Devils G Keith Kinkaid was an unlikely inclusion to the scoring section of the box score with an assist on Nico Hischier's goal in the third period. Being honest, Kinkaid said he doesn't even remember what he did.
The Devils beat the Hurricanes 5-2 to keep Carolina behind them in the standings, as New Jersey is now three points ahead. They are level on points with the Flyers in fourth, just four behind the second place Penguins. The Devils have two games in hand on Pittsburgh.
"I don't even remember what I did," Kinkaid said, via Andrew Gross of The Record. "I'll take it."
The Carolina Hurricanes not only bring a three-game winning streak to the Prudential Center for Thursday's Metropolitan Division clash with the New Jersey Devils, but they also have the support of their mothers, who made the trip from Raleigh as part of a team moms' trip.
So, what does Hurricanes coach Bill Peters expect from his team on Thursday?
"You're gonna' play hard," Peters told reporters. "This is the person who brought you into the world, so you're gonna' play hard for them."

NEWARK, N.J. -- Thursday night at the Prudential Center, the Calgary Flames bring their very successful road show into town as they face off with the New Jersey Devils.
The Flames are unbeaten in their last six road contests, with five wins in regulation and one overtime loss, and are tied with the Boston Bruins for the fewest road regulation losses on the season (5). All told, they are an impressive 14-5-5 away from the Saddledome.
All of this bodes well for a team in the midst of a season-high six-game road trip.
