  • ANAHEIM, Calif. — Marian Gaborik scored with seven seconds left in regulation to force overtime, and then scored 12:07 into the extra period to lift the Los Angeles Kings to a 3-2 win Saturday night against the Anaheim Ducks in the opener of the first playoff series between the Southern California teams.
    Gaborik redirected Anze Kopitar's shot past Jonas Hiller for the winner before being mobbed in the corner by his teammates.
    The Ducks appeared poised for a win after 43-year-old Teemu Selanne beat Jonathan Quick between the pads for a go-ahead goal with 11:52 to play in regulation.
    But the Kings pulled Quick for a sixth attacker with 1:22 left. Mike Richards took a shot from along the left boards, and Gaborik wristed the rebound past Hiller.
    Bruins 5, Canadiens 2
    At Boston, Reilly Smith scored the go-ahead goal with 3:32 left, and Boston rallied from two down in the third period to beat Montreal and tie the Eastern Conference semifinals at one game apiece.
    The Bruins trailed 3-1 with just over nine minutes remaining before Dougie Hamilton scored, then Patrice Bergeron tied it with 5:43 remaining. Reilly then wristed a cross-ice pass from Torey Krug past Carey Price to give Boston the lead.
