LA Kings defeat Vancouver Canucks 5-3. What more can be said about the Kings’ power play? 3-for-3 in this game the Kings are 7-for-12 in the series so far - the biggest reason the Kings hold the 2-1 series lead. You can read my recap here.

LA Angels defeat Detroit Tigers 2-0. Joel Pineiro is proving that his breakout last season with the St. Louis Cardinals was no fluke with yet another great outing. He did give up nine hits but was able to get out of most of the jams he created - the exception being in the eighth inning after giving up back-to-back singles to Johnny Damon and Magglio Ordonez with one out. Kevin Jepsen came in and got Miguel Cabrera and Carlos Guillen to ground out. The only offense the Angels mustered came in the third inning when Jeff Mathis doubled in Howie Kendrick and scored on a groundout by Bobby Abreu. Angels closer Fernando Rodney in his first game against his old team retired the side in order. A scary moment happened in the eighth when Mathis was hit on his right hand on a foul tip by Cabrera. Although he was all right to play, he is now considered day-to-day with a contusion. With their fourth consecutive win the Angels are back at .500.
