Kings 4, Ducks 3 (OT)

LOS ANGELES (AP) -Jamie Lundmark tied the game with 8:49 left in the third period and Michael Cammalleri got the winner on a power play at 3:17 of overtime, giving the Los Angeles Kings a 4-3 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night.


Andy McDonald

Alexander Frolov and Raitis Ivanans also scored for the Kings, who are last in the Pacific Division - 31 points behind the first-place Ducks. The largest gap between the Southern California rivals at the end of any season was 26 points, when the Kings had the advantage in 2000-01 and again in 2001-02.

Dustin Penner and Scott Niedermayer had power play-goals for Anaheim, and Andy McDonald also found the net for the Ducks.

Each of the teams' first seven meetings this season has been decided by one goal - with the Kings winning three of them. Neither team has won a division title since the NHL expanded to Anaheim in 1993-94. They face each other for the final time on March 18 in Anaheim.

Los Angeles general manager Dean Lombardi, who in recent weeks unloaded Craig Conroy, Sean Avery, Oleg Tverdovsky, Brent Sopel and Jeff Cowan with the Kings way out of the playoff picture, shook up the roster Tuesday with a flurry of trade-deadline deals that had the crowd of 17,620 scrambling for programs.

The Kings played their first game without captain Mattias Norstrom, who has appeared in more games than any defenseman in franchise history. Norstrom was sent to Dallas with Konstantin Pushkarev and a couple of draft picks for defenseman Jaroslav Modry, three draft picks and the NHL rights to Johan Fransson.

Anaheim captain Scott Niedermayer received an interference penalty 39 seconds before Cammalleri cashed in with his 25th goal, a one-timer from the right circle that beat Ilya Bryzgalov high to the glove side. It was the second time in five games that Niedermayer took a penalty in overtime that resulted in a goal. Daniel Sedin also made him pay on Feb. 20 in Anaheim.

Jamie Heward set up the equalizer with a 55-foot wrist shot that Lundmark redirected past Bryzgalov for his third goal in 12 games since being acquired from Calgary in the Conroy trade. Heward was making his Kings debut after coming over from the Washington Capitals at Tuesday's trading deadline.

Rob Blake was serving an interference penalty when Penner tied the score 1-all with his 22nd goal, a deflection of Niedermayer's wrist shot from the right circle at 16:29 of the first period. Niedermayer put the Ducks ahead 2-1 at 3:43 of the second, parking himself in the low slot and redirecting Chris Pronger's 50-foot slap shot past Sean Burke's glove for his 12th goal.

McDonald made it 3-1 at 15:39 of the second with his 19th goal. Persistent forechecking by Chris Kunitz knocked Blake off the puck in the left corner of the Kings' zone and Teemu Selanne took control behind the net before feeding it to McDonald at the edge of the crease for a short backhander. But the Ducks gave it right back just 21 seconds later on a goal by Ivanans, who was activated Thursday from injured reserve.

Frolov opened the scoring at 4:24 of the first period with an unassisted goal. Anaheim defenseman Francois Beauchemin coughed up the puck to Frolov inside Los Angeles blue line, and the Kings' leading goal-scorer beat Niedermayer in a race down the ice before switching to his backhand and lifting his 33rd of the season over Bryzgalov's stick.

Notes: It was announced Thursday that the Kings and Ducks will open next season with a two-game series against each other in London - England not Ontario. The NHL's first-ever regular-season game in Europe will be played in a brand new arena being built by Anschutz Entertainment Group, the Kings' parent company. The Ducks opened the 1997-98 season in Tokyo with a pair of games against the Vancouver Canucks. ... LW Brad May played his first game for Anaheim after being acquired Tuesday from Colorado for rookie G Michael Wall, and was on the ice for only four shifts totaling less than 2 1/2 minutes before getting injured.
