ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Left winger Marian Gaborik scored with 7:53 left in overtime to give the Los Angeles Kings a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks in the first game of their Western Conference semifinal series on Saturday night in front of a standing-room-only crowd of 17,393 at the Honda Center.

Gaborik won the game when he deflected center Anze Kopitar's shot from the top of the slot past Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller at the left post.

Hiller, Anaheim's starter for most of the season, made his first start of the playoffs. In the first-round series against the Dallas Stars, Hiller twice relieved starting goalie Frederik Andersen and picked up the clinching victory in Game 6.

Gaborik tied the score with seven seconds left in regulation after the Kings pulled goalie Jonathan Quick for an extra attacker. Center Mike Richards received a pass from Kopitar at the left corner and sent the puck to Gaborik, who swiped the puck between Hiller's legs.

Right winger Teemu Selanne gave the Ducks a 2-1 lead at 8:08 of the third period. Left winger Patrick Maroon was stick-handling toward the net when Kings defenseman Matt Greene blocked him deep in the slot. The puck slid off Maroon's stick to Selanne, who beat Quick with a backhanded tap past Quick's stick.

Kings defenseman Alec Martinez began the scoring with a power-play goal. After the puck slid off Gaborik's stick, Martinez converted a wrist shot from just inside the left circle at 9:04 of the first period.

Nearly three minutes later, Anaheim left winger Matt Beleskey tied the score. Center Ryan Getzlaf skated behind the net at the right post to attract Greene and get Quick out of position. Before rounding the post, Getzlaf sent the puck past both Kings to Beleskey, who scored on a wrist shot at 11:41 of the period.

Quick, who received the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs, and Hiller each made 33 saves.
