Los Angeles 3, Anaheim 2 (SO)

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Luc Robitaille scored the tying goal in the third period and Joe Corvo got the deciding goal in a shootout, lifting the Los Angeles Kings to a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Mighty Ducks on Monday night.

The Kings have beaten the Ducks in the last nine meetings that have gone past regulation, including a 4-3 shootout win Dec. 16 in Anaheim. The last time the Ducks beat Los Angeles in overtime was Feb. 17, 1996, on Paul Kariya's goal.

Corvo beat Jean-Sebastien Giguere on the Kings' fifth shot of the shootout, right after Anaheim's Ryan Getzlaf hit the left post behind Mathieu Garon. The Ducks are 0-5 in overtime games that haven't involved shootouts. When they go to a shootout, they are 2-5. Nine of Giguere's 15 losses this season have been decided after regulation.

The Kings recorded their 30th victory of the season in their 51st game, tying the 1980-81 squad for the fewest number of games with 30 wins in the franchise's 38-year history.

Alexander Frolov scored a short-handed goal for Los Angeles after missing the previous three games with flu-like symptoms. Garon, who made a season-high 42 saves against the Ducks in the 4-3 shootout win Dec. 16 in Anaheim, stopped 33 shots in regulation - including a breakaway by Chris Kunitz with 13:08 to play.

Francois Beauchemin scored twice, including a power-play goal. Todd Marchant, playing in his 800th NHL game, got his 400th career point with an assist on Beauchemin's second goal.

The Ducks, who trail Edmonton by four points for the eighth and final Western Conference playoff berth, began an eight-game stretch in which they will face the Kings three times and the Oilers twice.

Robitaille, who became the Kings career goal leader Thursday night, pulled the Kings even with 8:22 left in the third period when he converted Derek Armstrong's centering pass from the right of the net for his 11th goal and 664th of his career.

The Ducks opened the scoring at 7:47 of the first period when Teemu Selanne set up Beauchemin at the edge of the crease with a pass from the base of the left circle. Selanne's assist put him within eight points of the 1,000 mark.

Less than 1 1/2 minutes into the second period, Beauchemin drew a 4-minute, high-sticking penalty from Craig Conroy after getting clipped near his left eye behind the Anaheim net. The Kings ended up with their 10th short-handed goal 37 seconds later, as Frolov intercepted a cross-ice pass in the Kings' zone and converted a rebound of Michael Cammalleri's weak flip on Giguere at the other end at 2:05 of the second period.

But Beauchemin put Anaheim back in front 2-1 with 10 seconds remaining on Conroy's double-minor. The Ducks' rookie defenseman took a 45-foot slap shot along the ice that changed direction off the stick of Kings defenseman Tim Gleason and slipped between Garon's pads at 4:12 of the period.

Beauchemin has four goals and 14 points in 26 games since the Ducks acquired him in a trade that sent Sergei Fedorov to Columbus on Nov. 5.
