Los Angeles Kings vs. Anaheim Ducks Game 2: Keys for Each Team
Associated Press
Game 2 between the Kings and Ducks should be a close one.

"The Freeway Faceoff" between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks was supposed to be a close series between two evenly matched teams. Game 1 did a lot to reinforce that theory.

The Kings escaped Anaheim with a 3-2 overtime victory despite being outplayed for long stretches of the game.

Marian Gaborik tied the game with just seven seconds left in regulation time and then won the game in overtime. Anze Kopitar had three assists for the Kings.

The Ducks got good goaltending from veteran Jonas Hiller in defeat. Ryan Getzlaf also had two assists for Anaheim.

The Ducks now trail the series 1-0 and look to even things up by winning Game 2, which starts Monday night at 10 p.m. ET in Anaheim.

Here are the three biggest keys for each team to win Game 2. Feel free to comment on any of these or to add one of your own. As always, indicate why you feel the way you do.
