LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Jarret Stoll scored his first goal of the season 2:19 into overtime, and the Los Angeles Kings rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday in the Freeway Faceoff.

Stoll tapped a slow-sliding puck under Frederik Andersen in the waning seconds of a power play for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who came back from a late deficit in the Southern California clubs' second entertaining meeting in four days.

Tyler Toffoli scored a short-handed goal, Jonathan Quick made 27 saves and Anze Kopitar scored the tying power-play goal midway through the third period for the Kings, who won for just the third time in 10 games.

Emerson Etem and Ryan Kesler scored for the Ducks, who beat Los Angeles 6-5 on Wednesday.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped Rick Nash to end the game for good.

Sidney Crosby failed to record a point in his fifth straight game against New York, but scored in the shootout. Derek Stepan had the lone shootout goal for the Rangers.

Evgeni Malkin scored his seventh goal, and Blake Comeau added his fourth in regulation for Pittsburgh, which has won nine of 10. Fleury stopped 29 shots to defeat the Rangers for the first time in five games.
