Lindholm, Ducks pass latest test against Kings

Anaheim Ducks defenseman Hampus Lindholm joined NHL Live to discuss their 3-2 overtime win against the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday and success in the third period this season.

Lindholm had an assist in the victory. His 34 points are second among Ducks defensemen.

"It was a very good test for us," Lindholm said. "We played a Kings team that was desperate because they're in a desperate situation. It was a real playoff atmosphere.

"Every time we play the Kings anytime during the season I feel like it's a playoff spirit. The crowd really gets into it and it's really fun to be out there. Every game is always tight, like the one-goal game [Wednesday], and it's real fun games to play.”

Anaheim, whose 97 points lead the Presidents' Trophy race, is 28-1-7 in one-goal games and leads the League with 12 wins when trailing after two periods (12-20-0).

Coyle, Wild continue ascension in Central Division

Minnesota Wild forward Charlie Coyle joined NHL Live to discuss how the Wild have turned their season around since sitting in last place in the Central Division in January.

Coyle had the second two-goal game of his career in the Wild's 3-2 overtime win Tuesday against the Nashville Predators. It was Minnesota's third win in four games and a franchise-record eighth straight win on the road. The Wild are 19-10-5 on home ice and 20-14-2 away from Xcel Energy Center, where they play the Washington Capitals on Thursday.

"It's always a disadvantage being an away team and we have to step things up," Coyle said. "I don't know if it's the mindset that we have going [on the road] but it's definitely been working for us. We have to bring that same mindset home and do the same thing there."

The Wild are 8-2-0 in their past 10 games and a League-best 18-4-1 since the All-Star break. They lead the Winnipeg Jets by three points for the first wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Western Conference and trail the Predators by nine points in the Central.

Los Angeles Kings forward Justin Williams joined NHL Live to discuss the defending Stanley Cup champions' push to reach the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Kings entered Tuesday leading the Winnipeg Jets by one point for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Western Conference.

"I think as a team we've experienced a lot together going through Cup runs, obviously," Williams said. "Getting to the playoffs is really the toughest. Half the teams get in and everyone is improving every year. We're battle tested and I look around the room and I'm confident that when push comes to shove we're able to do it."

Known as "Mr. Game 7," Williams has seven goals and 14 points in seven series-deciding games played. His teams are 7-0 in those games.

I think it's really good hockey. They have a good team and so do we. It's a lot of fun playing in those games.

"We were down 2-0 in the first period in the last game there and we found a way to come back and get a win. Since then we've been playing some really good hockey. I think [Tuesday] it's going be another great game against them. We know how important points are in the standings."
