Ducks 3, Kings 2.

Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf scored goals in regulation, and Teemu Selanne’s 4-on-3 overtime goal lifted the Ducks to a 3-2 win in their preseason finale.

Perry scored a 5-on-3 goal in the first period, and Getzlaf finished a breakaway of his own creation to put the Ducks up 2-0 early in the third period.

Jonas Hiller single-handedly lost the shutout with 4:10 left in the third period. With the Ducks skating 5-on-4, he left the crease to play a puck headed behind his net. Justin Williams followed the puck down the ice, stole it off Hiller’s stick, and tucked it inside the goal post before Hiller could cover it up.

Jack Johnson sent the game into overtime, sending a wrist shot into the back of the net from 55 feet out with 2:43 left.
