Perry, Getzlaf Get Goals In 3-2 Ducks Win Vs. Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf each had a power-play goal and an assist, and Teemu Selanne totaled three assists to help the Anaheim Ducks hold on to beat the Minnesota Wild 3-2 Thursday and snap a three-game winless streak.

Bobby Ryan scored, too, and Jonas Hiller made 23 saves, giving the Ducks a sparkling night of production from their stars on the second stop on their seven-game road tour.

Jared Spurgeon and Matt Cullen scored to give the Wild’s sagging power play a lift, but Cullen’s goal on a deflection of Mikko Koivu’s shot came with 6:06 remaining in the game with the Wild trailing by two — too little too late.

    Here we go again with the line juggling, cant put the puck in the net – even with a prolific scorer in Heatly. Settigouchi and Koivu are no sloutches when it comes to scoring, Clutterbuck. We need bigger D-men. Zanon, Zidlicky needs to be traded – we already have Spurgeon. Schultz is mediocre at best. Falk needs to be kept here, Stoner needs to step his game up in front of the net……there is still some glaring holes that need plugged. And Im not sure a rookie coach is what the Wild needed.

    What the Wild needed was an immediate impact in the standings….we’ve waited long enough for a winner. Its been 11 yrs now.

    At this point Im not sure Fletcher solidified his position to be kept on after this year. Heatly and Settigouchi were a start….but a rookie coach isnt going to teach them anything they already know….if anything its going to be the other way around.
