Two early first-period goals propelled the Anaheim Ducks to a 3-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in the first ever Stadium Series outdoor game on the West Coast before a crowd of 54,099 at Dodger Stadium on Saturday night.

Right winger Corey Perry scored his club-leading 25th goal and left winger Matt Beleskey produced his fifth as the Ducks (39-10-5) handed the rival Kings (29-18-6) their fifth straight defeat. Anaheim also beat Los Angeles for the second time in the past three days. Saturday's win came on the heels of the Ducks' 2-1 decision over the Kings on Thursday night in Anaheim.

Centre Andrew Cogliano added an empty-netter with 1:29 remaining in the game to send Kings' fans rushing for the exits.

Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller stopped 36 shots, while Kings netminder Jonathan Quick recorded 17 saves. For Hiller, the win ended a two-game skid after he won a club-record 14 consecutive victories.
