LOS ANGELES — They never had a lead in the game until the very end.
The end came at 2:19 of overtime when center Jarret Stoll tapped a centering pass from right wing Justin Williams into the net, leading the Los Angeles Kings to a 3-2 overtime win over the Anaheim Ducks during a matinee affair on November 15 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The Ducks opened the scoring on a goal by Long Beach, California native Emerson Etem at 8:38 of the second period.
Kings right wing Tyler Toffoli tied the game at 16:37, scoring on a shorthanded two-on-one break, but the Ducks came right back just 2:07 later on a goal by center Ryan Kesler.
Anze Kopitar fired a one-time snap shot past Ducks goaltender Fredrick Andersen on the power play at 9:25 of the third period to tie the game, setting the stage for Stoll’s overtime heroics, when he tipped Williams’ centering pass between Andersen’s skates, and into the net.
Andersen took the loss, making 34 saves, while Jonathan Quick got the win in goal for the Kings, stopping 27 shots.
