Anaheim Ducks Continue Streak Against Minnesota Wild; 2-1

Hiller Nearly Unstoppable in

Minneapolis, MN – Jonas Hiller leads the Anaheim Ducks to a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild Tuesday night. Hiller was slated to rest this evening, but Viktor Fasth suffered an upper-body injury and was a late scratch.

First Period:

The opening frame was a real physical affair as there were four power plays called and a fight. The scrum started when Zenon Konopka dropped gloves with Patrick Maroon at the 14:08 mark. Luca Sbisa was sent to the sin-bin for high-sticking Devin Setoguchi. Sbisa didn’t draw blood, so it was only the two minute variety. Setoguchi converted the opportunity in the closing seconds of the penalty with two minutes remaining in the period.

Second Period:

The Ducks were sorely out played in the middle frame. Luckily, Hiller was at the top of his game in the middle frame. What made the second even worse was that Corey Perry took a terrible five minute interference penalty and got a game misconduct for a vicious hit on Jason Zucker at the 4:21 mark. There were no goals scored in the second.

Third Period:

The final frame saw the Ducks wake up. Maroon ended the night an assist away from a “Gordie Howe” hat trick with the Ducks first tally of the night 3:06 into the third. Sbisa notched the game winner at the 16:56 mark. Hiller continued his stellar performance to earn top star honors.
