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

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
