LOS ANGELES — Despite spending much of the first period killing penalties, the Los Angeles Kings took control of their pre-season contest with the Anaheim Ducks in the final two periods to defeat the Ducks, 2-1, in front of a crowd of 15,179 at Staples Center in Los Angeles on September 24.
The Ducks took a 1-0 lead on a power play goal by defenseman prospect Hampus Lindholm in the first period, and they could have easily led by a fairly wide margin after one period. But Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick was brilliant, making 14 of his 27 saves in the game.
Justin Williams tied the game on a power play goal at 16:56 of the second period, and Anze Kopitar scored the game-winner at 3:41 of the third period.
Viktor Fasth got the start in goal for Anaheim, and almost single-handedly kept the Ducks close. He made 31 saves in a losing effort.
The Kings’ 2013 Training Camp continues today at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California. Their practice session, which is open to the public, begins at 11:00 AM PDT.
