Ryan Getzlaf scored in the third round of the shootout and Jonas Hiller made 33 saves to help lead the Anaheim Ducks to a 2-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Thursday. Andrew Cogliano scored in regulation for Anaheim, which has won five in a row and gone nine games without a regulation defeat (7-0-2). Despite missing star Corey Perry, who was serving the first of a four-game suspension for his hit on Minnesota's Jason Zucker on Tuesday, Anaheim improved its record to 9-2-3 on the road. Bobby Ryan also scored in the shootout, while Hiller denied both Dallas shooters he faced. Ray Whitney, in his second game back after missing 16 due to a broken foot, scored the only goal for the Stars. Kari Lehtonen, making his sixth straight start, had 29 saves.

A Long-Awaited Redemption Replacement From Panini: Meh.

I purchased a redemption from eBay a long time ago for a Dominion on-card auto numbered out of 50 of Ducks' winger Bobby Ryan. Dominion is my favorite hockey product, Bobby is my second favorite hockey player, and the price was right, so it was a win-win-win for me. I waited and waited and waited some more until I finally found out from Panini that the cards had been lost somewhere...

DALLAS (AP) -- Ryan Getzlaf scored in the third round of the shootout and Jonas Hiller made 33 saves to help lead the Anaheim Ducks to a 2-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Thursday. Andrew Cogliano scored in regulation for Anaheim, which has won five in a row and gone nine games without a regulation defeat (7-0-2).

Corey Perry On His Suspension

from Eric Stephens of Ducks Blog, Corey Perry figured that he would receive some form of discipline from the NHL for his hit on Minnesota's Jason Zucker and the possibility of him being out of the Ducks' lineup was realistic. But a four-game suspension? That one didn't enter the winger's mind. "I think it’s caught a lot of people off guard,"...

Stars look to bounce back against Ducks

The Anaheim Ducks just keep on winning - even if they're not necessarily playing their best hockey. They hope to carry that success into a series in which they've recently struggled as they go on the road to face the Dallas Stars on Thursday night.

Steve Palumbo: How Many Games Will Corey Perry Get?

Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry is facing a disciplinary hearing after a blatant head shot Tuesday night on the Minnesota Wild's Jason Zucker.

Perry caught a helpless caught the face of an unsuspecting Zucker with his elbow, snapping the his head back and leaving him...

Ducks Steal Game from Wild

After the 2-1 defeat of the Minnesota Wild by the Anaheim Ducks, no one in the state of hockey is happy.  Except Zach Sikich, but more on him later. The Wild were robbed.  Plain and simple.  They outworked, outplayed and outlasted the Ducks for the first two periods of the game.  Anaheim was outshot 22-7 after the first 40 minutes of play and things did not look like they...

Shootout in Dallas Goes Ducks Way

The last time the Ducks headed into Dallas, things did not fare well for Anaheim.  It was one of the few games they have lost in regulation all season.  Their second visit of the year was more successful, although they needed to come from behind, again, to get the 2-1 shootout win. "They are tough," said Ryan Getzlaf, who had the game winning goal in the shootout...

Corey Perry Would Be A Great UFA Signing For Ottawa

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun, Don't for a minute think that Anaheim is going to trade Perry at next month's deadline, and that his new team will lock him up with a long-term contract. The Ducks can win it all this season -- unless they deal Perry. Of course, nobody knows for sure what Perry is thinking other than Perry. But it looks very much like he's...

Ducks-Blues Preview

Undefeated at home for more than a month, the Anaheim Ducks are also finding ways to win on the road. The Ducks look to conclude a three-game trip with a sixth straight victory overall and second in seven days over the surging St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.
