Ducks Beat Kings 3-1, Secure Home Ice Advtantage In First Round

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Saku Koivu had a goal and an assist, helping the Ducks beat the Kings, 3-1, and secure home ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs.

Anaheim finished the regular season with 99 points (47-30-5), the same as Nashville and Phoenix. However, because the Ducks have more non-shootout victories than the Predators and Coyotes, they secured the fourth seed in the Western Conference.

Francois Beauchemin and Brandon McMillan also scored for the Ducks, who got 43 saves from Dan Ellis.

Jonathan Quick let in three goals on 20 shots for the playoff-bound Kings, who ended with 98 points (46-30-6) and currently sit in seventh in the West. However, their postseason seeding depends on Sunday's contests.
