Anaheim Ducks News for Thursday - Ducks win 6-3

That was a great victory for the Ducks. A bad omen for the game was that Schneider was out with a sore hip, but the Ducks played strong and came out on top with a 6-3 victory. Here is the game coverage.

Ducks Game Log

The Ducks have repeatedly stressed the need to get scoring production from sources other than the line of Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf and Chris Kunitz. While that trio did it all in putting the Ducks in front Thursday night against the Kings, other contributors made sure they kept that lead.

"We were able to rally around each other and make a few big goals," Getzlaf said. "Everybody contributed. That was the biggest thing."

Corey Perry scored the Ducks’ first two goals and Ryan Getlaf added his own in the third, one of four in the period that paced the Ducks to a 6-3 victory at Staples Center. Kunitz had assists on all of the Ducks' first three scores.

Following Getzlaf In the third, Brad May, Samuel Pahlsson and Rob Niedermayer each scored their second goal of the season in making sure the Kings didn’t pull off another comeback like they did in their last game in this arena. In that game last Saturday against Dallas, the Kings scored five goals in 5:07 in the third period to erase a 4-0 deficit and win 6-5 in overtime.

Corey Perry had two goals and an assist, and Chris Kunitz added three assists to lead the Anaheim Ducks to a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.

The victory was the Ducks' second over Los Angeles in three nights. They beat the Kings 4-3 in a shootout on Tuesday in Anaheim.

Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Kings counterpart Jean-Sebastien Aubin each made 26 saves.

Anaheim's Ryan Getzlaf broke a 2-2 tie when he jammed the puck past the sprawling Aubin at 2:08 of the third. The Kings' goalie blocked a shot by Perry, Kunitz took a couple of whacks at the puck near the left post, and it trickled across the crease to Getzlaf. The goal was his seventh.

Call it an adaptable rivalry, a movable feast of hockey.
On Tuesday, it was fists and fury -- among other things -- for the Kings and Ducks in the first game of their home-and-home series this week, at Anaheim, which the Ducks won in a shootout.

On Thursday, skill took center stage at Staples Center. That, and a huge third-period surge by the Ducks, who survived a lackluster first period and scored four times in the final 20 minutes on their way to a 6-3 victory against the Kings.

"Grease" was lightning for the Ducks.

Corey Perry is nicknamed Grease for his supposedly oily hair and complexion. Teammates jokingly wonder how Perry holds on to the puck because of his perceived slippery skin.

The Ducks winger has a firm grip on things this season, as evidenced by a two-goal game that propelled the Ducks past the Kings, 6-3, on Thursday night at Staples Center.

MVN Game Report

The Ducks finally went above the .500 mark this season with a 6-3 win over the Kings at the Staples Center. The two teams met for the second time this week and it was unknown how much animosity would be held over from Tuesday night’s game at the Honda Center.

There were a few changes from Tuesday - it was the battle of Jean-Sebastiens in goal - Aubin for the Kings and Giguere for the Ducks. Defenseman Mathieu Schneider, who received a “maintenance” day yesterday, was missing with a sore hip that has him listed as day to day. Joe DiPenta was inserted into the line-up after having been scratched the past six games. Ryan Carter, who was called up from Portland on Tuesday, was put on the fourth line in place of Mark Mowers.

The Kings came out hard and had an strong first period, keeping the Ducks to only four shots on goal. With Drew Miller off for slashing, Anze Kopitar scored at 13:09 on their first power play opportunity of the game. The Ducks only had :04 seconds left to kill the penalty. Regardless, the game was 1-0 Kings.
