A goal by Corey Perry with 7:39 remaining in the third period proved to be the game-winner, giving the Anaheim Ducks a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night at the Xcel Energy Center. The win was the second straight for Anaheim, which improved to 2-0-1 on its eight-game road trip.
Perry, who had a hat trick on Sunday in Columbus, faked a shot to get free then beat goaltender Josh Harding to the inside at 12:21 of the final period, assisted by Luca Sbisa. It was the 27th goal of the year for Perry.
Anaheim outshot Minnesota 25-18 in the win.
The Ducks are 13-2-3 in their last 18 games. Minnesota has lost five straight games and is 5-16-5 in their last 26 contests. Anaheim continues its road trip on Wednesday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
