Ryan Getzlaf returns with 3-point game, Ducks rout Stars 6-2 to move to brink of 2nd round

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and two assists in his return from injury, and the Anaheim Ducks scored four power-play goals in a 6-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Friday night to take a 3-2 lead in their first-round series.

Corey Perry also had a goal and two assists for the top-seeded Ducks, who confidently moved to the brink of the second round after dropping the last two games in Dallas.

Nick Bonino, Mathieu Perreault, Jakob Silfverberg and Rickard Rakell also scored for Anaheim, which set a franchise record for playoff power-play goals. The Ducks chased Kari Lehtonen with five goals on their first 21 shots.

Jamie Benn and Shawn Horcoff scored for the Stars, who couldn't score on seven power-play chances.

Game 6 is Sunday in Dallas.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
