Mathieu Perreault gets 2 goals, Anaheim Ducks beat Bruins 5-2 for 14th win in 15 games

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Mathieu Perreault scored two goals, Jonas Hiller made 30 saves in his 12th consecutive victory and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Boston Bruins 5-2 Tuesday night for their 14th win in 15 games.

Perreault, Corey Perry and Nick Bonino scored power-play goals for the NHL-leading Ducks, who improved to 18-0-2 at home.

Andrew Cogliano scored short-handed during the Ducks' three-goal second period. Ryan Getzlaf and Teemu Selanne added two assists apiece in Anaheim's eighth consecutive win at Honda Center, matching its 8-0 streak to open the season.

Daniel Paille and Dougie Hamilton scored for the Bruins, who played without forward Milan Lucic for the first time this season due to an illness.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
