Derek Grant scored two goals, Ryan Miller made 34 saves and the Ducks defeated the Kings on Monday-evening 4-2 in the first rival match against Freeway Faceoff of the season.

Jakob Silfverberg scored his team-leading 10th goal, Hampus Lindholm had three assists and Carter Rowney had a goal and an assist when the Ducks won for the third time in 13 games.

Anaheim held on to a tense third period with a few big saves from Miller, who fell in for the ailing John Gibson, before Grant scored an empty goal from center ice with 38 seconds to go.

Kurtis MacDermid and rookie Nikolai Prokhorkin scored Kings for last place, who lost four out of six after an earlier series of solid games. Jack Campbell stopped 16 shots, but his teammates couldn't catch up with a lively derby.

The 145th regular seasonal meeting of the NHL teams in Southern California reached a low point for both franchises. The kings are entangled in last place in the Pacific Division for the second consecutive season, despite a recent run of solid play, while the ducks started the night just two points above them in the seventh.

But both teams were considerably better at home and the ducks used home ice to take a 2-0 lead in the first period.

After the Ducks had continued in the first minutes after a rebound goal from Grant, Silfverberg scored a power play goal midway through the first time on passes from fellow Sweden Lindholm and Rickard Rakell.

Rowney scored his fifth goal of the season to place the ducks 3-1, just 56 seconds after MacDermid's shot went through two screens for the kings' opening goal. Prokhorkin then scored an exceptional goal for Los Angeles, split two defenders and rode it just before his fourth career goal in 11 games.
