Hockey fights of the week

The 2014-15 season may be remembered as the season in which the sport of hockey pushed away from fighting. Players are still dropping the mitts, but they are doing so at a greatly reduced rate.

Kings vs. Ducks: Freeway Faceoff rivalry to be renewed Wednesday

If it wasn't a rivalry before, it is now.

It's not a true rivalry until you play them in the playoffs, they insisted.  But a heated seven-game series in the Western Conference Semifinals changed it all.  "We beat...
