With first place in the Pacific Division on the line, it’s no surprise there was some early friction between the Anaheim Ducks and L.A. Kings on Saturday.
Order appeared to be restored after the original scrum along the boards. But chaos once again ensued after a late shove to Corey Perry and it was on from there. Rickard Rakell and Kris Versteeg paired off in the main bout.
The Ducks, winners of 10 straight games, and Kings are tied for top spot in the Pacific with 80 points.
