The Kings’ 4-3 shootout loss Saturday to the Winnipeg Jets at Staples Center in their regular-season finale means the Ducks can clinch their fourth consecutive Pacific Division championship with a victory of any kind Sunday over the Washington Capitals at the Verizon Center. All they need are two points.
The Kings finished the regular season 48-28-6, 102 points.
The Ducks are 45-25-11, 101 points with one game to go.
The division winner will play the Nashville Predators in the first round. The second-place team in the Pacific will play the San Jose Sharks. The Kings and Ducks have each secured home-ice advantage for the first round.
