ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Lubomir Visnovsky and rookie Dustin Brown scored power-play goals and Roman Cechmanek stopped all 17 shots as the Los Angeles Kings beat the Mighty Ducks 4-0 Friday night in the preseason finale for both teams.

Trent Klatt and Jozef Stumpel also scored and Derek Armstrong had two assists for the Kings (5-2-1), who open the season next Thursday at Detroit. The Kings outshot the Ducks 43-17.

The Ducks, who came within one victory of capturing the Stanley Cup last June, completed their first winning preseason since entering the NHL in 1993 (4-2-1). They begin the regular season Wednesday night on the road against the Dallas Stars, whom they beat in the second round of the playoffs.

Ducks defenseman Keith Carney, who left Thursday night's 3-1 win at Phoenix after blocking a shot by Shane Doan, was diagnosed Friday with a broken right foot. Surgery isn't necessary, but Carney is expected to miss 3-4 weeks.

Defenseman Todd Simpson, acquired from Phoenix in Friday's waiver draft, is expected to join the Ducks at practice on Sunday.

Klatt, beginning his 12th NHL season and first with the Kings after signing as a free agent on July 7, beat Jean-Sebastien Giguere with a 15-foot wrist shot from the slot 6:36 in. Giguere, the MVP of the playoffs, stopped 26 of 29 shots during his two periods in net.

Brown, the Kings' No. 1 draft pick, got his fourth goal of the preseason on a rebound at 5:51 of the second. Prior to that, Ducks defenseman Ruslan Salei received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for slashing Luc Robitaille, who left the game with a bruised left thigh.

Anaheim's Samuel Pahlsson was off for slashing when Visnovsky scored on a 30-foot slap shot from the slot at 15:59 of the second to make it 3-0.
