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

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
