Getzlaf, Perry Lead Ducks Past Struggling Stars
DALLAS -- Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry each had a goal and an assist and John Gibson made 39 saves for the Anaheim Ducks in a 3-1 win against the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center on Sunday.
Clayton Stoner also scored for the Ducks (40-17-7), who have won five of their past seven games. Gibson has gone 4-1-0 in his last five games and 5-3-0 overall since his recall from Norfolk (AHL) on Feb. 10. Anaheim is 5-1-0 in the last six games and improved to 27-7-5 vs. the Western Conference, tops among intra-conference teams.
Dallas (27-26-10), winless in its past six games (0-4-2), got its lone goal from Patrick Eaves late in the second period.
"The one thing we are is comfortable in one-goal games," said Getzlaf, whose two points tied him with Paul Kariya (669) for second place on the franchise's all-time scoring list. "They came on strong. I have to give them credit. They came out really hard in the second period. I don’t think we handled it the way we wanted to, but we got the job done."
