Ducks 5, Kings 4.

Bobby Ryan notched two goals and an assist, Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry each had one goal and one assist, and Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 31 of 35 shots as the Ducks ended their preseason with a 5-4 win over the Kings.


Getzlaf and Perry were on the ice for all but the last of the five goals. That goal — the eventual game-winner — came from Joffrey Lupul at the tail end of a 3-on-1 rush with Saku Koivu and Teemu Selanne with 2:35 left in the third period.

With the Kings holding a 6-on-5 advantage, Anze Kopitar stuffed in a goal on Giguere from the doorstep with 1:13 left, making it 5-4.

James Wisniewski had a pair of assists and Koivu, Selanne and Scott Niedermayer had one assist apiece. The Ducks conclude the preseason with a 5-3 record and won’t play again until the season opener against San Jose, at Honda Center on Saturday.
