Kings win one-point Freeway Faceoff


Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty, left, celebrates scoring a goal with center Jarret Stoll during their game against the Anaheim Ducks at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday.


Jarret Stoll scored his first goal of the season 2 minutes, 19 seconds into overtime as the Los Angeles Kings rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday in the Freeway Faceoff.

Stoll tapped a slow-sliding puck under Frederik Andersen in the waning seconds of a power play for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who came back from a late deficit in the Southern California clubs’ second entertaining meeting in four days.

Tyler Toffoli scored a short-handed goal, Jonathan Quick made 27 saves and Anze Kopitar scored the tying power-play goal midway through the third period for the Kings, who won for just the third time in 10 games.

Emerson Etem and Ryan Kesler scored for the Ducks, who beat Los Angeles 6-5 on Wednesday.

Anaheim have earned points in seven straight games, but their five-game winning streak in regular-season games against Los Angeles ended.


Brandon Sutter scored in the fourth round of the shootout, after the Rangers thought they had won it, and Pittsburgh escaped with a victory over New York.

Dan Boyle appeared to win it for the Rangers in the third round, but his goal was then disallowed after a video review showed he hit the puck a second time on a rebound.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped Rick Nash to end the game for good.

Sidney Crosby failed to record a point in his fifth straight game against New York, but scored in the shootout. Derek Stepan had the lone shootout goal for the Rangers.

Evgeni Malkin scored his seventh goal, and Blake Comeau added his fourth in regulation for Pittsburgh, who have won nine of 10. Fleury stopped 29 shots to defeat the Rangers for the first time in five games.

Martin St Louis and Lee Stempniak had goals for New York. Lundqvist made 36 saves, but could not earn his fifth straight win against the Penguins.


Mikael Granlund scored 40 seconds into the third period as Minnesota held on for the win.

Dallas goaltender Kari Lehtonen stopped Charlie Coyle’s shot from the top of the right circle, but Granlund beat the goaltender to the puck for the rebound.

Minnesota’s Darcy Kuemper allowed only a second-period goal by Antoine Roussel and finished with 27 saves.

The Wild tied it at 1-1 on Erik Haula’s goal 15 minutes, 41 seconds into the second period.

Minnesota won their second straight game after a four-game losing streak.

Lehtonen had 20 saves.
