Corey Perry scored the tiebreaking goal with 8:39 to play, and the Anaheim Ducks furiously rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period for a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in the Freeway Faceoff on Friday night.

Ryan Kesler and Emerson Etem scored 90 seconds apart early in the third period for the Ducks, who beat the defending Stanley Cup champions for the third time in four lively meetings this season.

Perry secured the seventh 25-goal season of his NHL career when he slipped past two Kings to put home a bouncing puck in the slot. He then added an empty-net goal with 23.6 seconds left on a high-arcing shot.

Trevor Lewis and Brayden McNabb scored for the Kings, who have lost two straight after an eight-game surge.
