Ducks Vs. Canadiens: Anaheim Snaps Seven-Game Skid With 4-1 Win

Anaheim picked up their third win in their last 19 games.

A pair of power play goals helped the Anaheim Ducks avoid matching a dubious franchise record, as they defeated the Montreal Canadiens 4-1 on Wednesday night at Honda Center. The victory ended a seven-game losing streak for the Ducks, who picked up their third win in the last 19 games.

Devante Smith-Pelly scored a power play goal at 6:06 of the second period to give the Ducks a 2-1 lead, and Corey Perry added another power play tally at 2:55 of the third period to widen the margin to 3-1. The Ducks killed all five power plays from the Canadiens. Niklas Hagman added an empty net goal with 1:29 remaining to provide the final margin. It was Hagman's second goal of the season.

The Ducks avoided matching their franchise-worst eight-game losing streak, something they did twice, from October 12-30, 1996, and November 3-20, 2005.

Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller saved 19 of 20 shots for the win. Perry had a goal and an assist for the Ducks, as did Ryan Getzlaf, who picked up his first goal since October 27, a span of 14 games.

Anaheim continues its homestand Friday night, hosting the Philadelphia Flyers.
