Anaheim Ducks defeat Nashville Predators 4-3 (OT). While it's a good thing the Ducks won the game, they gave the Predators a point by allowing the game to go to overtime. With the season ending the Ducks can't afford to give away points. Teemu Selanne hit the game winning goal on an assist by Chris Pronger after only 34 seconds had elapsed in overtime in a power play situation. The Ducks are only three points out of a playoff spot and have a favorable schedule down the stretch.
LA Clippers defeat Washington Wizards 123-108. The Clippers started the game lethargic. The Wizards were faster on the rebounds and steals. But something ignited the Clippers after the half and they started getting to the ball and controlling the tempo. Seven Clippers scored in double digits with Eric Gordon, Al Thornton and Steve Novak scoring over 20 points. Chris Kaman wasn't far behind with 19 points. A total aside to this game: it's really nice to hear Ralph Lawler giving 100% calling the game. He and color commentator Mike Smith have a great rapport. While the Clippers might not give that effort Lawler will always be on top of his game.
