Getzlaf scores in shootout to send Ducks to 2-1 win over Stars

DALLAS - Ryan Getzlaf scored in the third round of the shootout and Jonas Hiller made 33 saves to help lead the Anaheim Ducks to a 2-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Thursday.

Andrew Cogliano scored in regulation for Anaheim, which has won five in a row and gone nine games without a regulation defeat (7-0-2).

Despite missing star Corey Perry, who was serving the first of a four-game suspension for his hit on Minnesota's Jason Zucker on Tuesday, Anaheim improved its record to 9-2-3 on the road.

Bobby Ryan also scored in the shootout, while Hiller denied both Dallas shooters he faced.

Ray Whitney, in his second game back after missing 16 due to a broken foot, scored the only goal for the Stars.

Kari Lehtonen, making his sixth straight start, had 29 saves.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
