(Newser) – Teemu Selanne scored two goals, including the game-winner with 13:32 to play, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Los Angeles Kings 4-3 last night. Selanne fired a wrist shot from the left circle past Kings goalie Dan Cloutier to break a 3-3 tie. Joe DiPenta and Ryan Getzlaf also scored and Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 28 shots for the Ducks, who won six of eight against their rivals this season.

Dustin Brown, Brian Willsie and Patrick O'Sullivan scored for the Kings who were playing their final game of the season. Los Angeles entered play Saturday tied with the Tampa Bay Lightning for the fewest points (71) in the league. The Kings could enter Monday's NHL draft lottery with the highest percentage chance of securing the top pick in the draft. (Read more NHL stories.)
