Jeff Carter and captain Dustin Brown tallied in regulation while
Martin Jones made 26 saves in his NHL debut for the Kings, who have
earned at least one point in 13 of their last 14 games (9-1-4). King
raced in and beat Jonas Hiller to the glove side to give Los Angeles
the edge in the bonus format, and Jones denied Mathieu Perreault on
the Ducks' last chance to clinch the win.
Corey Perry recorded a goal and an assist while captain Ryan Getzlaf
also scored for Anaheim, which remained unbeaten in regulation at
home this season (10-0-2). Hiller stopped 49 shots, including 35
over the first two periods.
After a scoreless opening session, Carter intercepted a pass and
beat Hiller high to the glove side from the slot at 7:05 of the
second. Los Angeles' lead lasted only 46 seconds, however, as
Getzlaf backhanded the rebound of Hampus Lindholm's shot out of
midair and into the net to forge a tie.

Perry put Anaheim ahead 2:14 into the third,
beating Jones from alone on the doorstep during a power play.
The Kings pulled even less than four minutes later as Brown
grabbed the puck after a faceoff win by Jarret Stoll in the
right circle and unleashed a wrist shot that caromed off
Hiller's glove and in.
