Luca Sbisa scored the winning goal with 3:04 left in the third period, Jonas Hiller made 30 saves, and the Anaheim Ducks rallied for a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night. Patrick Maroon also scored for the Ducks, who have won four straight and gotten points in eight consecutive games. Devin Setoguchi scored a power-play goal for the Wild. Minnesota got off to a hot start, but couldn't put the Ducks away and saw its four-game home winning streak snapped. The Ducks are the second best team in the Western Conference behind Chicago, but didn't look like it after two periods. Minnesota got three power-play opportunities in the first and cashed in on the third when Setoguchi scored to make it 1-0. After a slow start, the Wild have scored a power-play goal in five straight games and seven of their last eight. Anaheim had prevented Minnesota from scoring during a 5-on-3 advantage earlier in the period. The Wild thought they had a 1-0 lead 2:27 into the game,...

Viktor Fasth unveils “Bane Duck” Goalie Mask Design

Anaheim Ducks backup goalie Viktor Fasth has been one of the surprising stories this NHL season.  The 30-year-old has posted a 10-1-1 record with a 1.92 goals against average, a .929 save percentage and two shutouts.  His stellar play earned him a two-year, $5.8 million contract extension and now he’s rocking this mask.  No word yet on when it will be officially unveiled, but...

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. Dallas has won four straight against Anaheim by a 12-3 score and has taken seven of the last eight meetings, including a 3...

Corey Perry Demolishes Jason Zucker With Blindside Hit to the Head (Video)

Corey Perry is known as one of the league’s best playmakers, but the Ducks forward also knows his way around the penalty box. On Tuesday night in Minnesota, he found himself in the bin after blindsiding the Wild’s Jason Zucker with a disturbing hit to the head. Perry was given a 5-minute major for interference and a game misconduct for the incident, which can be seen in the...

Video: Corey Perry lays vicious, dirty hit on Jason Zucker

Let’s go ahead and start this out by saying Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry is almost certainly going to get suspended for the hit in the video above. During Tuesday night’s contest, Minnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker was chasing the puck into his own zone and moved to pass the puck to a teammate. As he moved to gather the puck, Perry flew into Zucker and hit him hard in the...

Video: Corey Perry ejected for hit on Jason Zucker

Corey Perry doesn't exactly have the best reputation for a goal scorer. So far this year he has nine goals and 15 assists, and he'll probably have a nice hefty suspension to go along with it after this hit in Tuesday night's game between the Anaheim Ducks and Minnesota Wild: It's obviously a late hit, as proven by the interference call that was the initial...

Perry shows remorse for Zucker hit: 'It's unfortunate'

Corey Perry's blindsided hit to Jason Zucker cost him a game misconduct and five-minute major for interference Tuesday night. The late hit to Zucker's head knocked the 21-year-old Minnesota Wild forward's head into the boards and out of the game. Afterwards, Perry showed some remorse for the vicious hit. “I was committed to the hit. … I tried to let up...

Sexton Traded for Wilson; Players Recalled

Good bye Sexy!  The Ducks traded winger Dan Sexton to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for center Kyle Wilson. Sexton split time between Anaheim and their AHL affiliate from 2009-2011.   He played a total of 88 games in Anaheim and one playoff game.  He scored 13 goals and 32 points during that time.  Sexton was not recalled at all during the 2011-2012 season and spent...

(Video) Corey Perry Hit On Jason Zucker

In my opinion this is a violation of rule 48 and will cost Corey Perry a game or two from the department of players safety. Wild forward Jason Zucker is in a vulnerable position and the head looks to be targeted. 48.1 Illegal Check to the Head – A hit resulting in contact with an opponent's head where the head is targeted and the principal point of contact is not permitted...

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...

Ducks Keep Rolling Against Blues

Anaheim continued their winning ways with a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues.  They have 11 straight victories at home, a record for the team, and have not lost there this season since their home opener. At the halfway point, the Ducks are solidly in second place in the NHL with an 18-3-3 record.  They are only six points behind Chicago and slowly creeping up on them as...
