Pronger propels Ducks past Kings

ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- Defenseman Chris Pronger recorded his second goal of the game 3:04 into overtime to lift the Anaheim Ducks to a 3-2 preseason triumph over the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday.

Chris Kunitz also scored and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 26 saves for Anaheim, which improved to 4-1-1 in the preseason.

Michal Handzus and Brian Boyle each netted power-play goals in the second period and Erik Ersberg turned aside 28 shots for the Kings, whose last three games have gone beyond regulation and ended in defeat.

After Los Angeles turned over the puck in the offensive zone, Pronger accepted a feed from Teemu Selanne and backhanded a shot past Ersberg for the game-winner.

Both teams relied on their power play in the second period.

Handzus scored after a scramble in front of the net 7:31 into the session, and Boyle gave the Kings a 2-1 lead just 2:20 later by redirecting defenseman Tom Preissing's shot past Giguere.

The Ducks have struggled while shorthanded, allowing nine power-play goals in 32 opportunities this preseason.

Kunitz leveled the contest with 6:20 remaining in the second period, accepting a feed from Brendan Morrison and slipping the puck past Ersberg.

Morrison, who spent eight seasons with Vancouver, made his debut with Anaheim. He missed the last half of the 2007-08 season with wrist and knee injuries.
