Kings 3, Mighty Ducks 2
Jan. 13, 1998
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) _ Ray Ferraro scored with 2:56 remaining in overtime for his second goal of the game Monday night as the Los Angeles Kings rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.
Yanic Perreault tied the score with 2:07 left in regulation for the Kings.
The Kings scored on their only shot of the extra period. Ferraro took a pass from Vladimir Tsyplakov, skated in untouched and crashed the net. The puck trickled in under goaltender Guy Hebert's right leg while he was on the seat of his pants.
Hebert, the first player Anaheim selected in the 1993 expansion draft, was going for his 100th victory with the Ducks.
The Kings, who outshot Anaheim 15-4 in the third period, tied it when Perreault's wrist shot from the middle of the right circle glanced off Hebert's right arm and caught the far side of the net.
Mark Janssens and Paul Kariya gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead with goals 3:07 apart in the second period. Kariya's goal was his ninth in 15 games since ending his 32-game holdout.
Hebert received a break at 11:36 of the second period when referee Don Koharski and the video judge disallowed a goal by Aki Berg with 10 seconds left on a four-minute penalty against Scott Young. Ferraro had his right skate in the crease on the play.
Kings defenseman Mattias Norstrom sat out the game after being suspended by the NHL for his five-minute boarding penalty against Edmonton's Tony Hrkac on Saturday night. Norstrom, who received a game misconduct after the incident, is scheduled to have a hearing on Tuesday to determine the length of his suspension.
