Corey Perry's 2 goals pace NHL-leading Anaheim Ducks to 5-3 win over Carolina Hurricanes

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Corey Perry had two goals and an assist in the first period, Andrew Cogliano scored a short-handed goal, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 Sunday night for their second straight victory out of the Olympic break.

Frederik Andersen made 49 saves for the NHL-leading Ducks, who jumped to a 5-0 lead midway through the second period and coasted to their third consecutive win overall.

Francois Beauchemin and Jakob Silfverberg also scored as the Ducks won their NHL-best 43rd game and stayed five points ahead of Chicago and St. Louis in the overall league standings.

Alexander Semin, Andrej Sekera and Patrick Dwyer scored in Carolina's fifth straight loss overall and its fourth in six days since the break.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
