ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- 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, but replay officials determined a shot from Torrey Mitchell never crossed the red line. Fans booed the call and Wild players on the bench pointed at the video screen while a replay was shown after the announcement. Hiller started in goal for Anaheim after Viktor Fasth sustained an upper-body injury during the morning skate. Minnesota outshot Anaheim 22-7 after two periods, but only had the one goal thanks to Hiller's strong play. The Wild also failed to score on a 5-minute power play in the second after Corey Perry was penalized for interference and ejected for elbowing Jason Zucker. Perry dipped his shoulder and threw an elbow at Zucker's head, sending him crashing into the corner boards. Zucker stayed down on the ice for about five minutes and was helped off by teammates. The Ducks tied it 1-1 when Maroon corralled Toni Lydman's shot off the back boards and scored his second goal of the season 3:06 into the third. It was only Anaheim's ninth shot of the game. Sbisa scored the go-ahead goal -- his first of the season -- on a shot from the point that deflected past goalie Niklas Backstrom. The Ducks put 14 shots on goal in the third period. NOTES: Fasth's injury forced Anaheim to scramble to make sure it had a backup goalie for the game. The Ducks called on amateur Zach Sikich, a former goalie at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, who now runs a goalie school in Minneapolis, to skate with the team during warm-ups while Jeff Deslauriers traveled to Minnesota from Anaheim's ECHL affiliate in Fort Wayne. ... Sikich skated onto the ice behind Hiller, wearing light-blue pads and No. 31. Deslauriers arrived early in the first period and took Sikich's spot on the bench. ... The Wild acquired a sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for forward Matt Kassian. The forward had two career goals and was originally selected by Minnesota in the second round of the 2005 draft.
