Perry's 2 goals lifts Ducks over Blues 4-2
ANAHEIM 4, ST LOUIS 2

By JOE RESNICK
Associated Press

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Bobby Ryan took the long skate back to
the bench after his penalty led to a power-play goal against the
Anaheim Ducks.



Scoring the tying goal en route to the Ducks' 4-2 victory over
the St. Louis Blues on Sunday night made the bad feelings
disappear quickly.



Ryan was serving a tripping penalty for upending Roman Polak in
the third period when Patrik Berglund scored 24 seconds into the
power play to give the Blues the lead.



But Ryan responded 1:30 later to tie it, and Corey Perry scored
twice to extend Anaheim's home-winning streak to 11 games -
tying a franchise record.



"When you're sitting over there and you're helpless and you
can't really do anything about it, then you have that long skate
across the ice when they score, it's the worst feeling in
hockey," Ryan said. "I think the entire bench thought it was
probably one of the worst calls that's happened to us this year.
I took it personally and I felt I needed to redeem myself.



"It's nice how things went after that."



Ryan got the equalizer when he jumped on a loose puck in front
and whipped his eighth goal of the season past Jaroslav Halak.
Francois Beauchemin earned one of his three assists on the goal,
taking a long slap shot that bounced off Ducks captain Ryan
Getzlaf's backside.



"It was the best pass I made all night, I think," Getzlaf said.



Ryan did his best impersonation of Alex Ovechkin after the goal,
skating past the net and leaping against the glass in jubilation
while the sellout crowd went wild.



"There was a lot of emotion there," said Ryan, who tied a career
best with a seven-game point streak. "I think the penalty fueled
that a little bit. I was really fired up and had a lot of
energy."



Perry scored the go-ahead goal with 14:40 left before adding an
empty-netter in the final minute, and Jonas Hiller made 14 of
his 29 saves in the second period.



Andrew Cogliano had a short-handed goal, helping the Ducks
improve the NHL's second-best record to 18-3-3. Anaheim, 15-2-2
in its last 19 games, hasn't lost at home since the opener
against Vancouver.



"We're going out every night and playing the same type of
hockey, whether we're on the road or at home," Getzlaf said.
"We're just trying to stay consistent throughout the whole
season."



Polak was off for tripping Saku Koivu when Perry parked himself
at the right of the crease, and Getzlaf's screened wrist shot
from the top of the right circle glanced off him and past Halak
for a 3-2 lead - his fifth game-winner this season.



"It feels good," Perry said. "Everybody here knows what's going
on and the role they're supposed to be playing, and everyone is
adapting to it. We're staying positive when we get down in
games, whether it's early - or like tonight, in the third
period.



"We find a way to win."



In a game featuring teams that came in with the NHL's top two
power-play units, the league-leading Ducks were 1 for 7. St.
Louis was 1 for 3 and surrendered a short-handed goal for the
fourth time this season.



Shortly after coming up empty on a two-man advantage, the Ducks
tied it 1-1 at 8:24 of the second period with a power-play goal.



"That's a tired team," Ryan said. "At times we were five feet
away, and at other times we were in the right spot but just
couldn't really get a hold of anything. But if you continue to
stick to it, it'll eventually come around."



Coming off consecutive shutout wins for the fifth time in
franchise history, the Ducks fell behind 1-0 at 6:09 of the
first when Reaves redirected Wade Redden's wrist shot from the
left point past Hiller's stick for his first of the season.



Redden's assist was the fourth point in 15 games for the
two-time All-Star defenseman.



"When we get a 2-1 lead in the third, we expect to win. And when
we don't, these are the ones we shake our head at," Blues
captain David Backes said. "I don't think fatigue or playing
yesterday is an excuse. I think if anything, we were more ready
for this game than usual.



"We got a one-goal lead in the third on a power play. Those are
the times when you buckle down, and you can't take your foot off
the gas."



NOTES: The Ducks have never posted three straight shutouts in
the regular season, but did it in the 2006 playoffs. ... Anaheim
had an 11-game home winning streak in the 2009-10 season. ...
Free agent C Jason Arnott, who has been skating with the Blues
this week, will find out Monday whether he will be signed.
Arnott last played in the NHL on April 30 with the Blues in the
second game of the Western Conference semifinals. ... The Blues
are 3 for 29 on the power play in their last 11 games. ... The
Ducks are 8-0 against Central Division teams. ... Anaheim C Nick
Bonino was dressed for the game, but didn't play because of the
flu. RW Kyle Palmieri missed his fourth straight game because of
an upper body injury. ... Blues LW Andy McDonald missed his
seventh game because of an injured left knee. He sat out 51
games last season due to a concussion.
