For the second time in three days, the Ducks and Kings will meet in preseason action as they battle it out tonight at Honda Center. (7 p.m. PT, TV: Prime Ticket, Radio: 1110 KRDC). The Ducks enter tonight's contest with a 2-1-1 mark, while the Kings come in with a 3-1-1 record.

In their preseason home opener last night against the San Jose Sharks, the Ducks jumped out to a three-goal lead and never looked back, defeating their in-state rival 4-1 at Honda Center. Andreas Martinsen, Jakob Silfverberg, Brendan Guhle and Derek Grant potted the goals, while John Gibson turned aside 31 of 32 shots in his first full game of the preseason.

After tonight's game, the Ducks will close out their preseason on Saturday against the Arizona Coyotes at Honda Center before opening up the regular season against them on Thursday, Oct. 3.

The Kings haven't played since their 3-0 victory over the Ducks at Staples Center on Monday night. They have two more exhibition contests left on their schedule, which culminates on Friday in Vegas. They'll have to wait until Saturday, Oct. 5 to open their regular season when they face the Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Place.

Kings rookie Blake Lizotte leads the team with four points (1g/3a) in three preseason games. The 21-year-old center was an undrafted free agent when the Kings signed him to a three-year entry-level contract on April 2, 2019.
