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

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
