Kings 1, Ducks 1

After a scoreless first period, the teams traded goals in the first minute of the second period.

On the first shift of the period, Michal Handzus took the puck to the net and tried a backhand shot. The puck hit the stick of a Ducks defender in front and deflected to the left. It found the stick of Wayne Simmonds, who scored from close range to give the Kings a 1-0 lead 15 seconds into the period. Kyle Clifford also got an assist.

Just 32 seconds later, the Ducks tied the game, when Matt Beleskey got the deflection on a long-range shot by defenseman Toni Lydman. Ryan Getzlaf also got an assist.
