Mathieu Perreault scores at 4:55 of OT to lift to Ducks 4-3 victory over Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Mathieu Perreault scored at 4:55 of overtime to give the Anaheim Ducks a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night.

Perreault's game-winner came on a 2-on-1 break with Francois Beauchemin. He dumped the puck to a streaking Beauchemin, who gave it right back to Perreault, and the centre flipped his shot past Niklas Backstrom to give the Ducks their first win of the season.

Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller had 30 saves while Backstrom finished with 26.

Zach Parise scored two goals for Minnesota.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
