Desperation met desperation, but the Kings met John Gibson again.
With great urgency for points, the Ducks and Kings played a game decided by the slimmest of margins. Both sides hit the post or crossbar in the final period, plus several other near-misses at both ends in a free-flowing contest that had 35 total faceoffs.
Through it all, Ducks goalie Gibson emerged with his second shutout in his past three starts, a 1-0 win against the Kings on Sunday night. His 24 saves added up to his second shutout of the Kings this season, and they made defenseman Josh Manson’s second-period goal the game winner at Honda Center.
