ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) _ Ruslan Salei and Marty McInnis scored second-period goals as the Anaheim Mighty Ducks beat the Los Angeles Kings 2-0 Friday night for their first exhibition victory ever over their intercounty rivals.

The Kings, who lost for the first time in three games this preseason, had won all eight previous exhibition meetings since the Ducks (2-1-1) entered the league in 1993.

Salei broke a scoreless tie when his shot popped into the air and settled in the net behind the back of goalie Stephane Fiset at 3:45 of the second period. It was the first preseason goal allowed by Fiset, after 31 saves, including 11 in Friday night’s first period.

McInnis made it 2-0 with a power-play goal at 14:47 of the second period, handling a rebound in front of the net and flicking the puck past Fiset. Teemu Selanne and Steve Rucchin assisted on the goal, the third point in two games for each.

Mighty Ducks goalie Guy Hebert played the entire game, turning away 29 shots. Hebert has allowed one goal in 49 attempts in two games.

The teams meet again Monday in Los Angeles, in what will be the Kings’ farewell appearance at the Great Western Forum before they move into the new downtown Staples Center.
