Ducks Dominate Third Period, Defeat Rival Kings 3-1 in Freeway Face-Off

The Anaheim Ducks defeated the Los Angeles Kings with a final score of 3-1. Trevor Zegras and Frank Vatrano were among the goal scorers, with Ryan Strome contributing two assists. Lukas Dostal, a rookie netminder, made 36 saves and earned his 18th career NHL win. He leads all first-year goalies in saves this season and is tied for fourth in wins with 13.

The Kings’ lone goal was scored by Akil Thomas, who has two goals in his first four NHL appearances. However, this was not enough to secure a win for the team, which fell to a 42-25-11 record on the season and failed to officially clinch a postseason berth. The score was a result of Thomas breaking through for the night’s first lead, followed by a tying goal from Vatrano. Despite a strong effort, including a potential tying goal by Killorn, the Kings maintained their lead.

Cam Talbot, the Kings’ goalie, faced a high number of shots and ultimately took the loss in net. The game was marked by intense play, with notable moments such as a diving block from Doughty and impactful shifts for Anaheim in the LA zone, eventually resulting in the tying goal by Vatrano.
