Stoll's overtime goal sends Kings past Ducks

Curtis Zupke  - NHL.com Correspondent | Sunday, 11.16.2014 / 1:30 AM

LOS ANGELES – The grin on Jarret Stoll’s face said it all. After the media scrum died down, he was asked about scoring his first goal of the season at 2:19 of overtime to give the Los Angeles Kings a 3-2 win Saturday against the Anaheim Ducks.

"I needed that one," Stoll said. "It’s been a while. I put a lot of pressure to try to help out and contribute and try to make sure other parts of my game are there, but it always feels nice to score a goal; [and] especially to get two points out of it is exciting."

Stoll’s first goal since April 9, and his 200th point as a King, came when he got his stick on Justin Williams’ pass and had the puck slide past Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen. The Kings bounced back from a 2-0 loss to the Dallas Stars on Thursday and a 6-5 shootout loss at Anaheim on Wednesday.

"We needed a good solid, playoff-style intensity game," Stoll said. "I think we got that. A lot of big hits; everybody showed up and played hard. We knew it would be a hard game. Right from the start it was a battle out there. We needed the two points pretty bad."

It was Anaheim’s franchise-record fifth straight overtime or shootout game and the Ducks extended their point streak (3-0-4) to seven games. The matinee capped the second action-packed game between the rivals in four days. The teams combined for 162 hits in the two games.

"This is two world-class teams going head-to-head," Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf said. "The other night we got them. Tonight they got us."

The Kings prevailed with a solid third period and overtime. They snapped a five-game power-play drought (0-for-18) on Anze Kopitar’s one-timer at 9:25 of the third to force overtime. Los Angeles sustained pressure for a long stretch and defenseman Drew Doughty set up Kopitar on the right side. Getzlaf was in the penalty box for goalie interference.

Getzlaf was upset afterward, but couldn’t complain much about getting a point. Anaheim has been without Corey Perry (mumps), among other players; Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau left open the possibility Perry could play in Anaheim's home game Sunday against the Florida Panthers.

"We’re battling through a lot of injuries," Getzlaf said. "We’ve got some big guys out of our lineup, and when we manage to get points every night, it’s a positive. Do we want two points? Do we want the depth to be able to fill-in for those guys every night? Yes. But … we’re getting points, we’re moving forward at least and we’ve got to find a way to string some together."

Ryan Kesler gave Anaheim a 2-1 lead after two periods with his sixth goal of the season at 18:44 of the second. He snapped the puck past Kings goalie Jonathan Quick off Bryan Allen’s shot-pass and Sami Vatanen’s setup.

It was Kesler’s third goal in two games against the Kings this season after a nine-game scoring drought.

Kings forward Tyler Toffoli tied the game 1-1 with his League-leading fourth shorthanded goal of the season. Getzlaf got caught pinching and Toffoli took the shot on a 2-on-1 with Stoll at 16:37 of the second. It was Toffoli’s team-leading eighth goal. He is the fastest Kings player to score four shorthanded goals.

"A big goal for us in the big picture when you’re coming off a game where you didn’t score," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "Five-on-five, we haven’t been getting a lot from our top guys, so for Tyler to score shorthanded is big for us"

Emerson Etem chipped in his own rebound off Quick at 8:38 of the first period to give Anaheim a 1-0 lead. Getzlaf worked the draw to Patrick Maroon, who set up Etem in the slot.

Etem has been playing with Getzlaf on the top line with Perry out. Boudreau wanted Etem in more of an offensive role.

"I thought he was our best forward today," Boudreau said. "There was signs, to me, as a coach, that the way he was skating [was similar to] two years ago in the playoffs … I think his confidence is growing too. One equates with the other."

The Kings changed their top line, with Jeff Carter at right wing along with Kopitar and Marian Gaborik. But Carter and Kopitar had no shots through 47 minutes.

Los Angeles defenseman Robyn Regehr returned from a lower-body injury as the Kings continue to carry no spare defensemen because of a finger injury to Alec Martinez and the suspension of Slava Voynov.

Sutter was optimistic about Martinez’s surgery.

"Everything went well," said Sutter, who tied Bob Berry for sixth on the Kings’ all-time wins list (107). "It was basically a finger; they had to do some suturing on his finger and clean up his nail. When it heals, then he'll be ready."
