Perry nets 2 of Ducks' 3 goals in 3rd period; Anaheim rallies to beat Oilers 3-2

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Corey Perry scored twice in the third period, and Francois Beauchemin added the winning goal with 1:21 left as the Anaheim Ducks rallied to beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Beauchemin fired a slap shot past goalie Viktor Fasth to give the Ducks their 50th win of the season (50-18-8). Perry and Ryan Getzlaf assisted on the deciding goal.

With the Ducks trailing 2-0, Perry scored his 40th goal just 37 seconds after Jordan Eberle doubled Edmonton's lead at 2:51. Perry then tied it with 8:35 left. It is the second time Perry has reached 40 goals in a season.

Rookie goalie Frederik Anderson (19-5) stopped 30 shots.

Philip Larsen scored his third of the season in the first period for Edmonton.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
