  • LOS ANGELES — John Gibson made 28 saves in his dynamic NHL playoff debut, captain Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and an assist, and the Anaheim Ducks evened their second-round playoff series with a 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 on Saturday night.
    Devante Smith-Pelly also scored in the first period and Corey Perry had two assists for the top-seeded Ducks, who bounced back from two series-opening losses at home with consecutive victories at Staples Center.
    Anaheim started its third goalie in three games with the dramatic entrance of Gibson, the 20-year-old American widely considered the best goaltending prospect in hockey.
    Jonathan Quick allowed two goals in the first period before getting replaced by rookie Martin Jones, who faced just three shots.
    Bruins 4, Canadiens 2
    At Boston, Reilly Smith and Jarome Iginla scored 32 seconds apart to help the Boston Bruins snap a five-year playoff power-play drought against Montreal and beat the Canadiens in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
    The Bruins lead the best-of-seven series 3-2, with a chance to eliminate the Canadiens in Montreal on Monday night. Game 7 would be Wednesday night back in Boston.
    Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson also scored, and Tuukka Rask stopped 29 shots for Boston.
