Kings vs. Ducks Game 7 final score, highlights and reaction

Justin Williams did his thing in another Game 7 as the Los Angeles Kings moved on to their third straight Western Conference Final.

- 2 LA wins, 4-3
3 things to know
  • Mr. Game 7 does it again
    If it's a Game 7 and Justin Williams is involved it, you can bet that he's probably going to end up scoring a goal. He did it again on Friday night in the Los Angeles Kings' 6-2 blowout win over the Anaheim Ducks by scoring a first period power play goal to get them off and running. Williams has now appeared in six Game 7s in his career and has six goals to go with six assists, including a goal and an assist in his two Game 7s this postseason. His performance in these games sometimes overshadows the fact that he's always a useful player in the Kings' lineup, but he always seems to be in the right place at the right time in the knockout games. For the Kings, it's their straight trip to the Western Conference Final and a rematch of last year's series with the Chicago Blackhawks.
  • It just wasn't the Ducks' night
    John Gibson is the future of the Anaheim Ducks' net, and he's been outstanding in these playoffs. But Friday night was simply not his (or the Ducks') night. Gibson was pulled just four minutes into the second period after giving up four goals on 18 shots and replaced by Jonas Hiller. It wasn't all on Gibson, though, as the team in front of him was completely outclassed for most of the night. Even when something did to the Ducks' way, like when Corey Perry was awarded a penalty shot in the first period, it still didn't work out for them.
  • Teemu forever
    Not only did Friday night mark the end of the Anaheim Ducks' season, it was also most likely the end of Teemu Selanne's career in the NHL. In 21 seasons with the Winnipeg Jets, Ducks, Sharks, and Avalanche, Selanne scored 684 regular season goals (11th all-time) and won a Stanley Cup with the Ducks during the 2006-07 season. He was a 10-time all-star, a rookie of the year, a goal-scoring champion and one of the last players to score 70 goals in a single season (Alexander Mogilny also did it in the same season). His next stop: The hockey Hall of Fame.
