Postcard from Dodger Stadium

By ESPN.com staff

An announced crowd of 54,099 filled Dodger Stadium to see Wayne Gretzky, KISS, beach volleyball and, of course, a hockey game.

Temperatures were around 63 degrees on a humid night, but the NHL-leading Ducks went on to a 3-0 win over the Kings in the first game of the Stadium Series.
