Getzlaf scores 3 goals, Ducks rally past Islanders 5-3 for team-record 8th straight win

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Ryan Getzlaf scored three goals and the Anaheim Ducks rallied for their eighth straight win, beating the New York Islanders 5-3 Saturday night.

Down 3-1, the Ducks scored four times in the third period. The Islanders played a spirited first two periods, taking their lead on two goals by Thomas Vanek and another by Frans Nielsen.

But Getzlaf scored his second of the game at 1:10 of the final period and Mathieu Perreault tied it at 10:32.

Kyle Palmieri, a native of Montvale, N.J., who scored the overtime winner Friday night against the New Jersey Devils, found himself in front of Evengi Nabokov with a clear shot at 13:44. The 22-year-old forward, who also scored the winning goal when the Ducks beat the Rangers 2-1 at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 4, knocked in his sixth goal of the season.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
