Final Score: Anaheim 4, Dallas 0
Dallas, TX (Sports Network) - Viktor Fasth made 26 saves to record his third
shutout of the season and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Dallas Stars, 4-0, on
It was the first of three games over five days between these two Pacific
Bobby Ryan had a goal and an assist for the Ducks, who have won two of three
and sit second in the Western Conference. Corey Perry, Matt Beleskey and Teemu
Selanne also lit the lamp.
"He made big saves," said Anaheim head coach Bruce Boudreau about Fasth. "We
weren't perfect tonight, we had break downs, and I think all Viktor did was
frustrate that team. I've been on that end, whether it's a player or a coach.
That was the big thing. We didn't want them to get one because we thought that
would really energize them."
Kari Lehtonen stopped 26-of-29 shots for the Stars, who went 2-3-0 on a five-
game homestand. They sit three points behind the Blues for the eighth spot in
"Obviously the result isn't what you want," said Stars head coach Glen
Gulutzan. "We didn't lose, we got beat. We got beat. We had enough there, if
we would've capitalized, to win."
The Ducks' offense got going at the 10:13 mark of the second period. Ryan beat
Lehtonen with a wrist shot from the left circle.
Over two minutes later, Perry put in a rebound off a shot from the point to
extend Anaheim's lead.
Beleskey lit the lamp with 4:58 remaining in the middle stanza. His initial
backhand attempt was denied at the near post by Lehtonen. However, Beleskey
stuck with it and flipped in the rebound from in front.
Selanne's empty-netter with 28 seconds left sealed the deal.
The Ducks lead the season series by a 2-1 margin ... Anaheim closed out a
four-game road trip on Monday ... This will mark the second time in the Ducks'
history that they will play three in a row during the regular season against
the same team. Anaheim went 1-0-2 over a three-game span versus the Phoenix
Coyotes on March 2-6, losing a pair of shootout games on the road before a
home victory ... The Ducks acquired forward Harry Zolnierczyk from the
Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for forward Jay Rosehill.
