Alexander Frolov and Raitis Ivanans also scored for the Kings, who are last in the Pacific Division – 31 points behind the first-place Ducks. The largest gap between the Southern California rivals at the end of any season was 26 points, when the Kings had the advantage in 2000-01 and again in 2001-02.
Dustin Penner and Scott Niedermayer had power play-goals for Anaheim, and Andy McDonald also found the net for the Ducks.
Each of the teams’ first seven meetings this season has been decided by one goal – with the Ducks winning five of them. Neither team has won a division title since the NHL expanded to Anaheim in 1993-94. They face each other for the final time on March 18 in Anaheim.
