The Ducks on Monday signed wing Corey Perry to an eight-year, $69-million extension that barely exceeds the $66-million extension the team gave center Ryan Getzlaf this month. Calling the signing “a major relief,” Perry said Getzlaf's signing March 8 and the team's 20-3-4 record before Monday night's game against San Jose were major factors in his decision. “A lot of guys in that dressing room will be here for a long time, this is a team that can contend every year,” Perry said during Monday's second intermission, with the Ducks leading San Jose 4-2 in pursuit of their club-record 12th straight win at Honda Center.

DALLAS - It's taken them longer than they wanted, but the Ducks have found a formula to beat the fast, physical Dallas Stars. Now it's just a matter of proving it translates to the enemy ground of American Airlines Center. "You want to finish it here. That's our mind-set," Ducks forward Corey Perry said Saturday. Friday's 6-2 victory in Anaheim gave the Western Conference top-seeded Ducks a 3-2 lead in the first-round playoff series with Game 6 Sunday in Dallas, where both of the Ducks' losses have occurred.

When Ducks forwards Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry agreed to buy equipment for first-time hockey players ages 4 to 10 who will participate in the team's Learn to Play program, they knew they might have to hand over a sizable check at the end of this season. “Could be,” Getzlaf said Wednesday, “and we'll be happy to write it. If we have to write a big check that means there's a lot of kids out there playing hockey, so that's our ultimate goal.” Getzlaf and Perry, linemates and friends who began their careers with the Ducks and each signed an eight-year contract extension last season, get marquee billing in the newly renamed program, Anaheim Ducks Learn to Play powered by Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry.

DALLAS -- Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf was scratched from the Game 4 lineup Wednesday with an upper-body injury, the team announced minutes before the 5 p.m. game. Getzlaf, with 31 goals and 56 assists during the season, has two goals and two assists in the first-round Western Conference playoff series that Anaheim leads 2-1. The injury was sustained during Game 3, a hockey official close to the situation but unauthorized to speak about it publicly told The Times. [UPDATED, 5:35 p.m. PDT, April 23: Getzlaf boarded a flight back to Southern California at 4 p.m. Central time to get immediate treatment, with the hope of playing in Game 5 Friday, the Ducks said.

Something transports Corey Perry to the net. It isn't magic, even if it seems like some mystical force suddenly drops the 6-foot-3, 212-pound winger in front of some nervous goaltender. One moment Perry is breathing down the goalie's neck from behind, his stick tapping as it juggles the puck and then, whoosh, suddenly he is in front of the net, the puck still on his stick. The goalie is keyed up, coiled, maybe even desperate. Will Perry flick the puck low? Will he treat his stick as a shovel and heave the puck into a corner?

CALGARY, Canada - Corey Perry has won a Stanley Cup and understands the pivotal points of a season better than most. Wednesday night at the Saddledome against the Calgary Flames is such a moment for the Ducks. "This is the biggest road trip of the season for sure," Perry said. "We've talked about it. We know what our record is in the past 10-12 games. We know we're better. We have to get back to doing what we did before, and if we do, it's going to propel us through the rest of the season.

Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry met at a selection camp for an under-18 team -- or so Perry recalls. Getzlaf thought it wasn't until after the 2003 draft, in which the Ducks chose him 19th and Perry 28th, that they began forming the bond that led to having their names engraved on the Stanley Cup in 2007 and on Team Canada's roster for the Vancouver Olympics. After a moment's thought, Getzlaf decided Perry was right. "He made that team and I didn't," the rangy center said, "so that's why he remembers it."

It might have vanished for the final 10 games of last season, but Corey Perry 's scoring touch has reappeared to coincide with the Ducks' sprint to the most points in the NHL after 17 games. "I'm just trying to win, I haven't changed anything," said Perry, the Ducks wing who has scored four of his team-best 10 goals in the last three games. Perry had two goals in the Ducks' 6-3 win at Buffalo on Saturday. He also has seven assists, and two came in what he says was the key game of the team's recent eight-game trip: a 2-1 victory at Ottawa on Oct. 25. The Ducks started their current 6-0-1 run with that victory.

It wasn't the ideal situation for the Ducks, trailing by a goal going into the third period on the road against the defending Stanley Cup champions. Or maybe it was. Corey Perry continued his torrid play, scoring twice in the final period as the Ducks upended the Chicago Blackhawks, 2-1, on Saturday at the United Center. Perry moved into the NHL scoring lead with 44 goals and the Ducks passed Chicago for seventh place in the Western Conference. Even better, they are three points ahead of ninth-place Dallas with only seven games left in the regular season.

Corey Perry was a fresh-faced second-year player and just 21 when the Ducks started their playoff run to a Stanley Cup championship in 2007. Now, the 2010-11 Hart Trophy winner is a little more than a month removed from signing an eight-year, $69-million extension, and the attention on him is far more glaring with the Stanley Cup playoffs just days away. "Starting from a young age and maturing as a player, you're taught to put the team on your back," Perry said after practice Friday at Honda Center.

DALLAS -- The Ducks' overall skill has shined in taking a 2-0 playoff series lead, but the Dallas Stars have continued trying to lure the Western Conference top-seeded team into a more physical confrontation. Not only did Dallas become more punchy after it trailed, 4-0, in Game 1, ultimately losing, 4-3, in Anaheim, the Stars opened Game 2 with a Ryan Garbutt high stick on Kyle Palmieri and defenseman Trevor Daley penalized for roughing Corey Perry. As the series moves to American Airlines Center on Monday night for Dallas' first home playoff game since May 2008, it's a good bet that physical play increases.

Corey Perry thought he knew the type of effort that was coming from his close friend and first-line mate Ryan Getzlaf. Just in case, he was braced to produce in a big way, too. Getzlaf, in extraordinary circumstances, pulled off a legendary performance of playing like his old self Friday with a goal and assist in the 3-2 victory that lifted the Ducks to a 2-0 lead over the Dallas Stars in the first-round Western Conference playoff series at Honda...

Consider this the leader setting the tone. Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf - two days after he was smashed by a puck that did so much damage to the left side of his face that doctors quit counting the stitches required to close the wound - expects to pop in some aspirin and play Friday in Game 2 of the first-round playoff series against the Dallas Stars. "If I saw my captain take a puck in the face and come back the next day, I'd want to play as hard as I possibly can," Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said Thursday.

Keys to the best-of-seven series between the Ducks and Dallas Stars: 1. RIDE THE TALENT: Corey Perry has shown with several dramatic goals in his 43-goal season that he's capable of producing in pressure, and first-line mate Ryan Getzlaf has scored at an unprecedented rate. 2. USE THE SPY: Veteran defenseman Stephane Robidas was traded to Anaheim in March after more than 10 seasons with Dallas. He not only has a wealth of knowledge about the Stars' idiosyncrasies, but he also provides game-changing toughness the Ducks lacked in last year's first-round loss to Detroit.

Right wing Teemu Selanne will not be in the Ducks' lineup when they face the Kings on Saturday at Staples Center but will play in his final NHL regular-season game Sunday, when the Ducks host the surging Colorado Avalanche. The 43-year-old Finn, who plans to retire after the playoffs, hasn't played both ends of back-to-back games this season, a strategy designed to save his energy. Selanne, voted the most valuable player in the Sochi Olympic hockey tournament after he led his homeland to the bronze medal, has nine goals (four on the power play)

He's scored from his knees and while being pushed into a barrel roll. Ducks forward Corey Perry has eight two-goal games, nine game-winning goals and he's let four games or more pass only twice this season without slapping the puck into the net. "He has a knack around the net that no one has, hits the net better than any shooter I've ever seen, one of the clutchest persons I've ever been around," said Ducks forward Patrick Maroon, who has...

Corey Perry is linked with Ryan Getzlaf by more than just their membership on the Ducks' first line. So when Perry's close friend remained sidelined Sunday against the Kings by a leg injury, it was clear who was carrying the heaviest burden in the captain's absence. Consider a regulation goal and the winning shootout shot proper compensation. "When you don't have your top guy out there, everyone knows there's going to be holes and roles to fill," Perry said after the 4-3 victory at Honda Center moved the Ducks (26-8-5)

With an opportunity to clinch a second consecutive Pacific Division championship by beating the San Jose Sharks tonight, Ducks' 20-year-old rookie John Gibson was first off the ice at today's morning skate. Throughout the season, with the exception of a last-minute injury to former Ducks goalie Viktor Fasth, the goalie off the ice first has started that night's game. Gibson made his NHL debut Monday night in Vancouver, Canada, making 18 saves in a 3-0 shutout that was one of the Ducks' most complete efforts of the season.

Their coach might be sounding alarms, but the Ducks continued to thrill Wednesday. A game after they rallied from a team-record four-goal deficit, Anaheim wiped away the Edmonton Oilers' two-goal, third-period lead and won their 50th game, 3-2, at Honda Center. “Not the best way, but if we play the way we've been playing in the third period … we have that attitude of never say die,” Ducks forward Corey Perry said after scoring twice in the third against Oilers goalie and ex-Duck Viktor Fasth.
