Ducks outshoot ‘Canes for 4-3 win
Corey Perry scored the winning goal in the shootout and Ryan Miller made 34 saves in his debut in goal as the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Carolina Hurricane 4-3 in Raleigh Sunday night.
The Ducks built a 2-0 lead on scores by Ondrej Kase and Derek Grant, but the hosts rallied with two tallies of their own to tie the score. Justin Faulk gave the ‘Canes a 3-2 lead, but Jakob Silfverberg tied it up for Anaheim at the 15:12 mark of the third period.
Now 6-4-1 (worth 13 points and a tie for third place in the NHL Pacific Division), the Ducks are next in action on Wednesday at Honda Center hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs (7-4)
