Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf extend scoring streaks and lead Anaheim Ducks past Minnesota 2-1

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Corey Perry scored a goal in his seventh straight game, Ryan Getzlaf extended his point streak to 13 games, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Wednesday night for their fourth straight victory.

Jonas Hiller made 23 saves and Alex Grant scored his second career goal on his second NHL shot as the Pacific Division-leading Ducks improved to 12-0-2 at home, extending the second-longest streak without a regulation loss to open a season in the shootout era.

Josh Harding stopped 29 shots and Jason Pominville scored his 15th goal early in the third period for the Wild, who have lost four straight on the road.

Perry extended the longest goal streak in the league this season with a second-period goal, jumping on a loose puck for his 21st.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
