(Newser) – For the second straight game Andy McDonald scored the clinching goal in a shootout and the Mighty Ducks defeated the Kings 4-3 last night. The Ducks barely hung on: they blew a two goal third period lead and let Michael Cammalleri score the tying goal with 6:49 left to play. 

Cammalleri's tying goal was his 12th of the season. Had the Kings been able to hang on, it would have been their second straight comeback win: they defeated Dallas 6-5 Saturday night in a game they once trailed 4-0. The Ducks now lead the season series 2-1.
