Corey Perry scores twice to help Ducks pull away from Jets in Game 1
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Corey Perry scored two goals in the third period of a four-point performance, and the Anaheim Ducks rallied from another late deficit for a 4-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night in their first-round series opener.
Perry scored the tiebreaking goal with 6:39 to play, but the officials didn't immediately see that the puck had crossed the goal line near Ondrej Pavelec's outstretched pad.
The teams played on for 62 seconds until a stoppage allowed video review. The tape confirmed another impressive third-period rally by the Ducks, who had 24 comeback wins in the regular season.
Game 2 is Saturday night at Honda Center.
