Los Angeles 7, Anaheim 1

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Second-year defenseman Kevin Dallman had
two goals and two assists, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the
Anaheim Ducks 7-1 Monday night in the exhibition opener for both
teams.

Sean Avery, Matt Moulson, Brian Willsie, Eric Belanger and
Konstantin Pushkarev also scored for Los Angeles. Derek Armstrong
added three assists.

Ryan Getzlaf had the Ducks' goal.

Playing their first game with new coach Marc Crawford, the Kings
used four power-play goals to spoil the home debut for the new look
Ducks, who aside from dropping "Mighty" from their name have new
uniforms and a new logo.

After Avery scored on a rebound 8:02 in, Dallman drilled a
50-foot slap shot past Anaheim starting goalie Michael Leighton
during a power play 3:45 later to make it 2-0.

Getzlaf beat Kings starter Mathieu Garon with a shot from the
right circle 58 seconds into the middle period to draw Anaheim
within a goal. But Dallman assisted on a deflected power-play goal
by Moulson at 7:55 of the frame, and netted his second of the game
5:05 later to push the lead to 4-1.

The Kings scored four goals against Ilya Bryzgalov, who replaced
Leighton midway through the second period.

Dallman was a free agent signed to a two-year deal by new Kings
general manager Dean Lombardi on July 10.

The teams will meet in Los Angeles next Monday before opening
the season in Anaheim on October 6.

Both teams skated without their top offseason defensive
acquisitions, Chris Pronger for the Ducks and Rob Blake for the
Kings.
