Corey Perry scored late in the second period and added the winning goal in the shootout, leading the Anaheim Ducks closer to the Pacific Division title with a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday night.

Matt Beleskey scored the tiebreaking goal on a power play for Anaheim with 15:06 to play, but Kings captain Dustin Brown tied it with 3:45 left in regulation in the third Freeway Faceoff of the season.

The Ducks were outshot 38-22, but the Pacific Division leaders were perfect in the shootout. Bobby Ryan and Saku Koivu scored on Jonathan Bernier before Perry ended Anaheim's fourth win in six games with a wrist shot.

Jeff Carter and Drew Doughty scored for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who had won five of seven.
