Recap: Dallas vs. Anaheim
Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - John Gibson stopped 39 shots to lead the Anaheim Ducks in a 3-1 win over the Dallas Stars on Sunday.
Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf each had a goal and an assist, while Clayton Stoner also scored for the Ducks, who have won five of their last six games.
"Give those guys credit," said Getzlaf. "They came out playing hard in the second period. We responded and got the big win."
Patrick Eaves scored the only goal of the game for the Stars, who have lost their last six games. Jhonas Enroth stopped 19 shots in the loss.
Prior to the game, Dallas shipped forward Erik Cole to Detroit for defensive prospect Mattias Backman, forward prospect Mattias Janmark as well as a second-round pick in 2015. The Stars also sent a conditional third-round pick in 2015 to Detroit, but the pick goes back to Dallas if the Wings advance as far as the Eastern Conference Finals.
Anaheim got on the board with 2:14 to play in the first as Jiri Sekac skated down the left wing and sent a saucer pass to the front where Perry controlled the disc and lofted it in.
The only goal of the second period went to Dallas, as Trevor Daley chipped a rebound out front and Eaves snapped it in for a power-play goal at 17:51.
Anaheim went back on top at 4:19 of the third when Stoner's big blast of a loose puck at the left point squeezed between the pads of Enroth for a 2-1 lead.
The Ducks got an insurance goal with 5:51 to play when Perry sprung Getzlaf for a short break, and he wristed the puck into the right corner for his 20th goal of the year.Game Notes
