Cam Fowler had his first career short-handed goal and added two assists. Saku Koivu scored his first goal in nearly two months in the Ducks' third consecutive win and the Islanders' 10th straight loss.
Perry scored a goal in his career-best sixth straight game late in the second period, and he added a power-play goal in the third to clinch the sixth 20-goal season of his career.
It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
