Anze Kopitar scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, and Jonathan Quick made 27 saves in the Los Angeles Kings' 2-1 preseason victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night. Justin Williams had a power-play goal and an assist for the Kings, who beat their Southern California rivals twice in the preseason.
