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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
