Kings earn first win, beat Ducks 6-3 with three power-play goals

NHL.com @NHL

LOS ANGELES - Patrick O'Sullivan, Jarret Stoll and Tom Preissing scored on the power play, Wayne Simmonds got his first NHL goal, and the Los Angeles Kings rallied from a sluggish start to beat the Anaheim Ducks 6-3 Tuesday night for their first victory of the season.

The Kings are 1-2 under new coach Terry Murray, who replaced Marc Crawford after the Kings finished last season tied with Tampa Bay for the fewest points in the league. It was their first game since second-year defenceman Jack Johnson sustained a shoulder injury that is expected to sideline him through the all-star break at least.

Brian Sutherby and Todd Marchant scored first-period goals for the Ducks, who are off to an 0-3 start after back-to-back 100-point seasons and a Stanley Cup title in 2007.
