Ducks 6, Kings 2

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Teemu Selanne had two goals and two assists, Samuel Pahlsson added one plus an empty-netter and Andy McDonald picked up three helpers to lead the Ducks over the Los Angeles Kings 6-2 on Tuesday night at the Arrowhead Pond.

The Ducks are now in sole possession of fifth place in the Western Conference playoff race with 92 points.  Anaheim also reached the 40-win mark this season tying the club record for most wins in a season.

“Everybody is working so hard and I’ve always said confidence is the key,” said Selanne. “I don’t care who you are or what you do, you’ve got to have the confidence. This team is unbelievable right now. Every line is doing their job.”

Los Angeles started the scoring at 6:35 of the first period as defenseman Tim Gleason (2, Avery, Weaver) bounced a shot off the right shoulder of JS Giguere and into the net to give the Kings the early 1-0 lead.

Anaheim answered on the power play at 10:30 of the first stanza.  McDonald hit Selanne with a breakaway pass through center ice and Selanne (37, McDonald, Getzlaf) beat Mathieu Garon between the pads for the his team-leading 37th goal of the season.

Craig Conroy (21, Frolov, Demitra) got the tally back for LA just 33 seconds later with his 21st of the season over Giguere’s glove to give the Kings a 2-1 lead.

The Ducks opened the second period on the power play with the Kings’ Eric Belanger off for holding.  Joffrey Lupul (25, McDonald, Selanne) stuffed in a loose puck at the side of the net to tie the game 2-2 at 1:24 of the second.

The contest was tied 2-2 after two periods with the Ducks out-shooting Los Angeles 28-13 going into the second intermission.

“We had lots of opportunities to score more than the two goals we had after two periods,” said Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle.  “But that’s the way the game goes and we just had to stay patient.”

Selanne (38, McDonald, Lupul) opened a four-goal third period with a one-time slap shot from the side of the Kings net and over Garon’s right shoulder for his second goal of the game on the power play at 4:05 of the third.

Pahlsson (10, Hedstrom, R. Niedermayer) rifled a 45-foot wrist shot past Garon for his 10th of the season at 11:00 of the third period to give the Ducks a two-goal lead at 4-2.

Pahlsson (11, R. Niedermayer, Selanne) added an empty-net tally at 19:49 of the period to give Anaheim a 5-2 lead.

Ducks rookie Corey Perry (12, Unassisted) beat Garon just 11 seconds later at 19:59 of the third period to seal the 6-2 victory for Anaheim.

“There are still a lot of big games coming up and what’s important right now is the next one,” said Giguere.

The Ducks are 3-0 on this four-game homestand and face Dallas on Thursday night at 7:30 PM to close it out.

“It’s packed every night and the people are really into it” said Giguere.  “I think we’re giving them good hockey. When you put that all together, it really makes for a fun night. I hope they keep coming because we really need them and they’re really part of our team.”
