Ducks Vs. Blues Final Score: Big Third Period Gives Ducks 4-2 Win

Less than 24 hours after the St. Louis Blues scored three goals in the final period to defeat the Sharks, the Anaheim Ducks gave them a taste of their own medicine.

It was Corey Perry night in Anaheim, and the reigning league MVP recorded a power play goal as part of a big third period for the Ducks. It was Perry's first goal of the year, and hopes are high for the winger, who led the league in scoring last season. Francois Beauchemin and Bobby Ryan also recorded goals in a busy third period en route to a 4-2 Anaheim victory.

Ryan had two goals in the game. His first got the Ducks on the board in the opening period. The Blues were able to score once each in the second and third periods, but goalie Jonas Hiller did a fine job in front of the net, saving 28 of 30 chances.

The Ducks are off to a great start in this young season, with a record of 3-1-0 thus far. The last time the Ducks started out with a record this good was the 2006-07 season. You may remember that one. It ended with an Anaheim Stanley Cup.

Ducks Vs. Blues: MVP Corey Perry To Be Honored Before Sunday's Game

The Anaheim Ducks look for their third straight win on Sunday night, hosting the St. Louis Blues at Honda Center. Corey Perry, the reigning NHL MVP, will be honored by the Ducks before the game. Perry has yet to score a point in three games this season, but what better time to get on the board than on his night?

Fans attending Sunday's game will receive a commemorative poster and hockey puck featuring Perry's likeness.

On Saturday, the Ducks announced Jason Blake would be out three months after a freak injury, a deep laceration of his left wrist after getting but by a skate in Friday's win over the San Jose Sharks. Robby at Anaheim Calling speculated on the roster move to replace Blake:

Although Sexton is likely to be promoted to the team one way or another following Blake's injury, I don't think he deserves the first crack at the second line. As much as I love Sexton's fire, I just don't think he's got the offensive skills to fill that role.

Goalie Jonas Hiller has started all three games so far this season for Anaheim, saving 66 of 71 shots, 93.0%, including stopping 45 of 46 shots in the last two contests. Hiller recorded his 12th career shutout in Friday's win over San Jose.

The Blues are on the second night of back-to-back games, having battled the Sharks in San Jose on Saturday.

Sunday's 5:00 p.m. game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For more news and information on the Ducks, be sure to read Anaheim Calling.
