LA Kings Shut Down Ducks 3-1, Take 2-0 Series Lead

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Jonathan Quick made 36 saves, Marian Gaborik scored his third goal in two games, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 Monday night to take a 2-0 lead in their second-round series.

Alec Martinez also scored for the Kings, who opened their first playoff series against their local rivals with two victories at a road arena packed with their own fans.

Dwight King added an empty-net goal for Los Angeles, which has won six straight postseason games and is halfway to its third straight trip to the Western Conference finals.

Patrick Maroon scored a power-play goal and Jonas Hiller stopped 14 shots for the Ducks, who couldn’t crack the Kings’ NHL-best defense despite controlling play for long stretches.

Game 3 is Thursday at Staples Center.
