Ducks 3 Kings 2

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Teemu Selanne scored the tiebreaking power-play goal late in the second period, Corey Perry got his first goal of the series, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Kings 3-2 on Thursday night to trim Los Angeles’ series lead to 2-1.

Jonas Hiller made seven saves in the final 9:58 after rookie goalie Frederik Andersen left with a right leg injury for the Ducks, who bounced back from two narrow losses in Anaheim to open the series.

Ben Lovejoy added a goal with 2:55 to play as Anaheim snapped the Kings’ six-game postseason winning streak.

Jeff Carter and Mike Richards scored and Jonathan Quick stopped 19 shots for the Kings, who hadn’t lost since Game 3 of their stunning first-round series against San Jose.

Game 4 is Saturday night at Staples Center.
