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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
