LOS ANGELES, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Dustin Brown scored the decisive goal in the third round of the shootout Thursday, giving the Los Angeles Kings a 3-2 win over Anaheim.

Anaheim forced overtime when Lubomir Visnovsky scored with 3:11 to play in regulation.

Brown also scored in the third period to give Los Angeles a 2-1 lead.

Quick made 20 saves. Jonas Hiller stopped 32 shots before giving up the two shootout goals.
