ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Chris Kunitz had a goal and an assist, Teemu Selanne added two assists and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 41 saves as the Anaheim Ducks edged the Los Angeles Kings 4-3 on Friday night in the season opener for both teams.

The Ducks' Ryan Getzlaf snapped a 2-2 tie when he scored with 13:15 remaining, and Kunitz added a goal moments later. Lubomir Visnovsky pulled the Kings within one with his goal with 5:07 remaining, but that closed the scoring.

Corey Perry and Andy McDonald each scored in the second period for Anaheim.

Anze Kopitar, a 19-year-old rookie from Slovenia, scored Los Angeles' first two goals, also in the second period.

Getzlaf beat new Los Angeles goalie Dan Cloutier high on the glove side from 25 feet to help spoil Marc Crawford's debut as the Kings' coach. Both Crawford and Cloutier, who faced 32 shots in his first game for Los Angeles, came from the Vancouver Canucks.
