LA Lakers defeat LA Clippers 108-97. Andrew Bynum had a career game against the Clippers scoring 42 points with 15 rebounds. 42 points! That's the most points in a game that any Laker has scored this season. But let's not forget about Kobe Bryant who had a triple-double with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists. It seemed like his gnarled shooting hand gave him few problems. The Clippers though showed moxie led by Deandre Jordan's 23 points. If he can keep it up the Clippers will be fantastic over the long haul.

LA Kings defeat Colorado Avalanche 6-5. You would think that having a 6-2 lead in the second period would mean that the win is pretty much secured. But like a broken record, the Kings just have difficulties closing out games. Fortunately in this game they had built too big of a lead for this Avalanche team to pull out the win.

NY Islanders defeat Anaheim Ducks 2-1. The Ducks outshot the Islanders 40-14. They committed only one penalty. But they gave up two goals in the first period and couldn't catch up. Uy.
