Carter's hat trick leads Kings past Ducks

NHL.com @NHLdotcom

Jeff Carter, a key to the Los Angeles Kings' second-round victory against the Anaheim Ducks in the Stanley Cup Playoffs last spring, had a hat trick in the Kings' 4-2 victory at Honda Center, giving them back-to-back wins against their Southern California rival.

Defenseman Robyn Regehr opened the scoring for the Kings 2:47 into the game, and Carter made it 2-0 at 11:25. Anaheim's Sami Vatanen halved the deficit 21 seconds later, and Emerson Etem tied the score at 17:17 of the second period.

But Carter fired home a loose puck 1:14 later to put the Kings on top to stay, then completed his hat trick 3:52 into the third period after a turnover by Anaheim defenseman Cam Fowler.

Anaheim, which is 0-3-1 in its past four games, was 0-for-6 on the power play and is 0-for-15 during the preseason.
