Kings hold off Hamburg Freezers
HAMBURG, Germany -- Ethan Moreau's third-period goal lifted the Los Angeles Kings to a 5-4 exhibition win over the Hamburg Freezers on Tuesday.
Justin Williams got the Kings going when he scored in the first minute. Serge Aubin tied it for Hamburg, but Alec Martinez restored Los Angeles' one-goal lead. Kevin Schmidt tied it 2-2 before the first period ended.
Aubin gave Hamburg a 3-2 lead in the second period, but Anze Kopitar and Brad Richardson scored to put Los Angeles back in front.
Moreau pushed the Kings' lead to 5-3 in the third, and Hamburg's Canadian forward Brendan Brooks gave the home fans reason to cheer with 29 seconds remaining when he brought the Freezers back within a goal.
