For the first time in 15 days, the Anaheim Ducks finally got a win on Friday night, 4-3 over the Vanocouver Canucks at Honda Center in Anaheim. The win snapped a six-game losing streak for the Ducks, who had lost nine of their past 10 games before Friday.
In the second period the game looked like a rout, with the Ducks peppering Roberto Luongo with four goals from four different skaters. Andrew Cogliano and Corey Perry each scored power play goals, and Cogliano added an assist.
But nothing has been easy for the Ducks of late, including a 4-0 lead heading into the third period. Midway through the final period, the Canucks got three of those goals back, pulling to within 4-3 with Jannik Hansen's second goal of the night with 6:56 remaining.
The Canucks, however, were never able to score the equalizer, even with a power play in the final minute. Jonas Hiller saved 39 shots in the win. Anaheim hosts the Minnesota Wild Sunday night at Honda Center.
