The Kings forced a deciding game by edging the Ducks 2-1 in Game 6 at the Staples Center on Wednesday. Jake Muzzin and Trevor Lewis scored for the Kings, while Jonathan Quick returned to his early-series form and made 21 saves to earn the victory.
Anaheim rookie goalie John Gibson gave up his first "soft" goal of the series, and it was costly in the one-goal loss. Still, he played well besides the Lewis goal and will likely be between the pipes again for Game 7. Kyle Palmieri scored the only goal for the Ducks in Game 6.
This evenly matched series comes down to a seventh and deciding game. The loser goes home, while the winner advances to the Western Conference Final to meet the Chicago Blackhawks.
