Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Corey Perry provided the game-winner in the
second round of the shootout, as the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Chicago
Blackhawks, 3-2, on Tuesday at United Center.
After both teams scored to start the shootout, Anaheim goaltender Viktor Fasth
stuffed Patrick Kane's backhand attempt.
Perry then stepped up and rang a wrister off the left post and in to put
Anaheim in front. Brandon Sadd had a chance to extend the shootout, but Fasth
was able to get his right pad on Sadd's forehand chance to send Anaheim to its
second consecutive victory.
Fasth stopped 28-of-30 shots to improve to 6-0-0 over his first six starts,
becoming the first goalie to win his first six starts since Dan Ellis (with
Dallas/Nashville) accomplished the feat from Feb. 18, 2004-Nov. 29, 2007.
Andrew Cogliano scored the game-tying goal late in regulation, while Ryan
Getzlaf also lit the lamp for the Ducks, who have won six of their last seven.
Nick Leddy and Sadd each scored once, while Corey Crawford recorded 29 saves
for Chicago, which remains the only team in the NHL without a regulation loss
(10-0-3), despite having its four-game winning streak snapped.
