Cogliano scores 2 in 3rd, Ducks beat Red Wings 5-2

DETROIT - Andrew Cogliano scored two of Anaheim's three goals in the third period Friday night, sending the surging Ducks to a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.

Viktor Fasth made 26 saves to become the first goalie in seven years to win his first seven career starts. The 30-year-old Fasth is considered a first-year player and not a rookie by the NHL because he is older than 25.

Cogliano snapped a 2-all tie just 1:02 into the third and Bobby Ryan connected 48 seconds later. Cogliano capped the outburst with his fourth of the season at 18:11.

Matt Beleskey and Corey Perry each had a goal and an assist for Anaheim, which won its third straight and seventh in eight games.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
