Default Kings shoot down Ducks' postseason hopes

If they listened close enough, barely audible beneath the sound of music pumping through the visitors' locker room at Honda Center, the Kings could hear the other shoe drop on the Ducks' season.

It has been evident since the beginning of March, when the Ducks stormed out of the Olympic break with five consecutive losses, that the Stanley Cup playoffs would not visit Anaheim this year. But it did not become official until Tuesday, when the Kings' 5-4 shootout victory eliminated their rivals from postseason contention.

Somewhere in the midst of the Kings' comeback from a 3-0 deficit, the Southern California playoff torch was passed up the freeway, continuing the tradition of two franchises that never have made the playoffs in the same season.
