Martin Jones wins NHL debut, King scores only shootout goal in 9th round, LA beats Anaheim 3-2

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Martin Jones made 26 saves and stopped all eight shootout attempts to win his NHL debut, and Dwight King scored the only shootout goal Tuesday night in the Los Angeles Kings' 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.

Jonas Hiller made a season-high 49 saves and stopped Los Angeles' first seven shootout attempts, but King scored on wrist shot before Jones stopped Mathieu Perreault to end the first Freeway Faceoff of the season.

Jeff Carter and captain Dustin Brown scored for the Kings, who have earned a point in 13 of their last 14 games.

Corey Perry and captain Ryan Getzlaf scored for the Ducks, still the only NHL team that hasn't lost in regulation at home. Anaheim is 10-0-2 at Honda Center.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
