Key play: Corey Perry avoided a check along the right-wing boards, skated toward the Philadelphia Flyers’ net and then beat Steve Mason with the go-ahead goal 58 seconds into the third period to send the Ducks to a 4-2 victory Sunday at the Honda Center.
Pivotal performer: Perry scored two goals, his team-leading 12th and 13th, and made a pest of himself from the opening minutes. He ignited a fracas 4:29 into the first period after getting tangled up with Mason at the side of the goalie’s net.
Milestone moment: Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf’s assist on Perry’s second-period goal was his 700th point in his 740th game in the NHL. Perry’s goal, off an extended goal-mouth scramble, tied the score at 2-all. Getzlaf also scored a first-period goal, ending a 16-game drought.
Faceoff frenzy: Ryan Kesler won 16 of 19 faceoffs for the Ducks.
Quote, unquote: “When you’re coming out of the break, you want to be emotionally involved,” Getzlaf said. “It was perfect for our group to come out there and play a physical game and get into it right away.”
Injury update: Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler left the game after playing only 3:36 in the first period because of an unspecified lower-body injury. It wasn’t immediately clear how or when he was hurt or how long he might be sidelined. Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau didn’t have an update after the game.
