Sbisa's late goal, Hiller's strong play in goal rally Ducks to 2-1 win over Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Luca Sbisa scored the winning goal with 3:04 left in the third period, Jonas Hiller made 30 saves, and the Anaheim Ducks rallied for a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night.

Patrick Maroon also scored for the Ducks, who have won four straight and gotten points in eight consecutive games.

Devin Setoguchi scored for the Wild.

Minnesota got off to a hot start, but couldn't put the Ducks away and saw its four-game home winning streak snapped.

The Ducks are the second best team in the Western Conference behind Chicago, but didn't look like it after two periods.

Minnesota got three power-play opportunities in the first and cashed in on the third when Setoguchi scored to make it 1-0.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
