Williams leads Kings over slumping Ducks

Nov 17, 2011 - 6:42 AM
Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Justin Williams gave the Los Angeles Kings a 2-1 win over the Pacific Division rival Anaheim Ducks by scoring in the seventh round of the shootout.

Jarret Stoll and Ryan Getzlaf traded goals in the third round of the shootout after the first four participants came up empty. After four more skates were denied, Justin Williams beat Jonas Hiller up high, and Jonathan Quick saved Kurtis Foster's attempt to earn the extra point for Los Angeles.

Mike Richards scored in regulation for the Kings, who finished a successful 3-1 homestand on a high note. Quick made 23 saves in the victory.

"We can't be too happy. They got a point out of it, but to get two points is always good," Quick said.

Hiller was solid with 36 saves for Anaheim, which has gone 1-5-3 in its last nine games and will host the Kings on Thursday.

Getzlaf had a goal disallowed following Richards' 5-on-3 tally in the second when replay revealed he batted in Teemu Selanne's rebound with his glove and not his stick.

Nevertheless, the Ducks were able to send things to overtime late in the third when Selanne's wrister from the left faceoff circle snuck past Quick. The power-play goal appeared to have deflected off Ducks forward Corey Perry's shin before going in with 3:25 remaining.

Skating with Anaheim's Andrew Gordon and Maxime Macenauer in the penalty box 7 1/2 minutes into the second period, Jack Johnson let a slap shot fly from the point that went wide left. The errant shot proved effective, however, as the carom off the back boards went directly to Richards at the left doorstep and was quickly sent past Hiller.

"We looked nervous early. We really didn't get our game going until the last part of the game," Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle said.
