ANAHEIM, Calif. -- A small earthquake occurred Thursday night during the first intermission of Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinal between the Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks.

The quake, measured at 4.0 by the U.S. Geological Survey, didn't rattle the Honda Center crowd much and didn’t affect play -- it took place during the first intermission. The tremor was centered in an area two miles northeast of nearby Yorba Linda.
 
The adjacent Chino Hills was an active area Thursday as a 3.8 magnitude quake also occurred at 4:56 p.m. PT.
Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
