ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER/LOS ANGELES TIMES: Teemu Selanne Ben Lovejoy scored the game-winning goal and Jonas Hiller successfully filled in for an injured Frederik Andersen as the Anaheim Ducks edged the Los Angeles Kings 3-2. The Kings still lead the best-of-seven series two games to one. (Note: Selanne broke a 1-1 tie in the second, but it was Lovejoy’s goal which was the actual game winner. I regret the error).
