Devante Smith-Pelly scored twice and the Anaheim Ducks held on for a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 5 of this Western Conference semifinal series.
For the first time in this matchup, the home team won a game and it gave the Ducks a 3-2 lead in this best-of-seven set. Anaheim will have its first chance to close out the series on Wednesday in Los Angeles.
Nick Bonino and Jakob Silfverberg also scored goals for the Ducks, who have won three straight games after dropping the first two at home.
Rookie goaltender John Gibson, fresh off a shutout in his playoff debut in Game 4, made 39 saves to help Anaheim move a game away from its first appearance in the conference finals since 2007, when the team won its first and only Stanley Cup.
