Getzlaf's Goal in Shootout Lifts Ducks
"It shows we're battling and that we never quit," Giguere said. "We were down 2-0, and in the past it would have been real hard coming back from a deficit like that after the first period. But that's what this league has come to. If you don't quit and keep working hard, you'll have your chance."
The Ducks tied the game at 2 when a shot by Dustin Penner hit Garon's right glove and skittered end over end before striking the left post and going in at 14:10 of the third period. Ryan Shannon notched his second point of the game on the play.
Los Angeles led 2-0 in the first, with rookie Anze Kopitar assisting on both goals.
Lubomir Visnovsky's third goal of the season caught Giguere on the opposite side of the net. Kopitar's pass found Visnovsky in front of the net for a 1-0 lead at 3:55.
Michael Cammalleri, who leads the Kings with five goals, caught a pass with Ducks defender Travis Moen on his back and scored down on his left knee at 16:15.
Shannon made it 2-1 in the second with his first NHL career goal, beating a fully stretched Garon stickside.
The teams last played on opening night, when the Ducks won 4-3 at home.
Notes:@ Giguere has given up two goals or more in three of his seven games. ... The rivalry game drew an announced crowd of 18,118, the Kings' second sellout of the season. ... Sunday's game was the 70th between the teams, with the Kings owning a 30-28-11 record. ... Actress Sandra Bullock and husband Jesse James proved good sports when the arena's kiss cam zeroed in on them during a break in the second period. They shared a long smooch before breaking out in sheepish grins.
