LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Patrick Maroon scored the go-ahead goal, Frederik Andersen made 37 saves, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 Saturday night for their third straight win in the Freeway Faceoff rivalry.

Andersen and the Pacific Division leaders barely held off the Kings, who had a 38-20 shots advantage. An apparent tying goal by Anze Kopitar was waved off with 6:23 left because of incidental contact with Andersen, prompting Kings fans to litter the ice with debris.

Tim Jackman scored an early goal for the Ducks, who have won two straight after a four-game skid knocked them from their longtime perch atop the overall NHL standings.

Tyler Toffoli scored a power-play goal and Martin Jones stopped 18 shots for the Kings, whose eight-game winning streak was snapped Thursday by Toronto.
