ANAHEIM (AP) — Jonas Hiller made 27 saves in his seventh career shutout, rookie defenseman Cam Fowler scored and the Anaheim Ducks beat the slumping Los Angeles Kings 2-0 Monday night in the first meeting of the annual Freeway Faceoff.

Jason Blake scored with 2:24 left and Teemu Selanne had two assists for the Ducks, who have won two straight after a six-game skid.

Anaheim shut down the Kings’ offense in front of Hiller, who punctuated his first shutout of the season with a sparkling glove save on Anze Kopitar’s point-blank chance in the final minutes.

Jonathan Quick stopped 17 shots for the Kings, who have lost seven of eight after a six-game winning streak.
