COLUMBUS — The Los Angeles Kings have struggled to score goals all season, and few NHL players do it better than a healthy, hungry Marian Gaborik.
The Kings hope that’s just what they’ve got after acquiring the Slovak scoring whiz from the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday.
The Blue Jackets got right wing Matt Frattin and two conditional draft picks for Gaborik, who’s finally healthy after an injury-plagued season.
Just as Jeff Carter did two years ago when he left Columbus for Los Angeles in a deadline deal, the Kings hope Gaborik fits right in on their defense-minded roster. He could be in the lineup in Winnipeg on Thursday for the Kings, who have won five straight to solidify their playoff position.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — David Poile remembers only too well not getting anything out of Ryan Suter in 2012 when the Nashville general manager couldn’t sign the defenseman to a new contract.
He didn’t let it happen again.
The Predators made their biggest move this season at the NHL trade deadline Wednesday sending David Legwand, known as the original Predator, to his hometown Detroit Red Wings for two forwards and a draft pick in June.
“I certainly didn’t like the fact going back a few years the Ryan Suter situation when we didn’t get anything for an unrestricted free agent,” Poile said. “I think we need to try to manage our assets as best possible and the fact that David was going to be unrestricted and we have no guarantee we’ll be able to sign him after the season, (trading) made a lot of sense for the organization and for the future.”
Suter signed with Minnesota in July 2012.

Michigan takes title with 84-53 win at Illinois PDF Print E-mail

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Michigan came to Illinois with a shot at sewing up its first outright Big Ten title since 1986.
One potential obstacle stood in the way: The Illini were riding a hot streak and had held four straight opponents under 50 points.
It turns out Illinois wasn’t much of a problem.
Michigan (22-7, 14-3 Big Ten) buried Illinois with 16 3-pointers on the way to an 84-53 blowout Tuesday night.
Nik Stauskas scored 24 points, hitting a career-best seven 3 pointers. He said Michigan didn’t want to share the championship with anybody, something it did in 2012.
“We came with that mindset, this was our championship and we wanted to win it,” he said.
Dialed in or not, Michigan coach John Beilein said he didn’t see that kind of shooting performance coming against the Illini (17-13, 6-11).
“I haven’t seen that in practice even,” Beilein said. “We were really good today.”

AUBURN HILLS, Mich.  — The Chicago Bulls didn’t get a great night from their starters Wednesday. Their backups made sure they didn’t need one.
Reserves D.J. Augustin and Taj Gibson combined for 48 points on 18-of-30 shooting as the Bulls beat the Detroit Pistons 105-94 for their fifth win in six games. The Bulls only led by one point going into the fourth, but Augustin and Gibson had 20 of Chicago’s 34 in the fourth.
“A lot of guys are stepping up on this team right now,” Gibson said. “Everyone is working hard and helping in whatever way we need. The guys are just focused on the team right now.”
Both coaches went with seven-man rotations for most of the game, but Chicago’s duo completely outmatched Rodney Stuckey and Will Bynum. They finished with 12 points on 5-of-20 shooting, including a 1-for-11 night from Bynum.
“Will played his heart out, just like he always does,” Pistons coach John Loyer said. “He gives us everything he’s got every night, but there are going to be some games where the ball just rolls off the rim. They’ve got two very good players coming off the bench — Gibson has done that all year for them and Augustin has been like that since he got to Chicago.”

CLEVELAND  — They found the open man. They made the extra pass. They moved the ball with stunning efficiency.
The Spurs put on a basketball clinic. The Cavaliers couldn’t stop it.
Danny Green scored 24 points and San Antonio turned to its 3-point shooting to shake off a sluggish start in a 122-101 victory over Cleveland on Tuesday night.
Kawhi Leonard added 18 points, and Patty Mills and Boris Diaw had 16 apiece as the Spurs, running their offense to near perfection, won their fourth straight. They did it with stars Tim Duncan and Tony Parker combining for just 14 points.
