Charlotte Bobcats defeat LA Lakers 94-84. I was afraid of this game knowing the Laker's troubles with the Bobcats. In fact the Lakers are only 6-8 against the Bobcats. The Lakers shot an abysmal 39% on a team where no one performed well. In fact they outshot the Bobcats 97-68. The Bobcats meanwhile become only the second team to beat the Lakers twice and are within one game of a playoff spot in the East.
Anaheim Ducks defeat Edmonton Oilers 5-3. The Ducks continue to get wins when it counts as they won the first game of their three-game roadtrip against teams either vying for a playoff spot or are already playoff bound. Scott Niedermayer scored a goal in the second period and had two assists to lay the beat down on the Oilers. Prior to this season the Ducks had only won two of sixteen games in Edmonton. This season they have won both matchups in the frozen tundra. The Ducks are now tied with the Nashville Predators for the final spots in the West.
