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.

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.

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.

In an agonizing overtime loss to the last-place Edmonton Oilers, Ducks star forward Corey Perry took seven shots, was around the net routinely and couldn't score a goal. "We've got to put those in … don't look for the easy outs," said Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau . "When he bears down on those, he usually scores. " Less than 24 hours later, with first place in the Pacific Division at hand against a Vancouver Canucks team clinging to playoff life, Perry bore down. He powered to the net again Saturday, took a Saku Koivu pass through traffic and banged at the puck until a clinching third-period goal seized the night.

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 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)

Even a hugely talented class needs a scolding every so often. Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau watched his team slipping, turning a potential blowout against an Eastern Conference minnow into a fast-and-loose game. Fine for pond hockey but not an NHL stretch run. Boudreau called a timeout after the struggling Florida Panthers scored twice and pulled within a goal at the 10:00 mark in the second period and issued some stern reminders. It wasn't quite the Socratic method, but it worked and the Ducks needed 55 seconds after the timeout to score and then cruised, winning, 6-2, on Sunday night at Honda Center.

SAN JOSE - The opportunity to seize the Pacific Division lead slipped away from the Ducks on Thursday, when a criticized official's whistle and third-period breakdowns left them instead beaten by the San Jose Sharks, 3-2, at SAP Pavilion. With one more game than San Jose (46-18-7) still remaining, the Ducks (45-18-7) responded with a game-on type mind-set following the defeat. “We have 12 games left. We'll be tooth and nail in every one and they'll be the same,” Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said.

DENVER -- Teemu Selanne will join the Ducks' first line as left wing alongside stars Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on Friday night in one of the team's most telling games of the season against the Colorado Avalanche. After getting drubbed 7-2 by the lowly Calgary Flames, the Ducks return to Colorado for the first time since the Oct. 2 season opener, when Avalanche Coach Patrick Roy went ballistic and nearly broke through a glass partition to fight Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau as Colorado won by a 6-1 rout.

The reputation that precedes the Ducks is their offense, as the team has the third most goals in the NHL. But it also ranks fifth in the league in team defense, allowing 2.36 goals a game. The unit was further lifted by Friday's performance against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins, limiting the potent Eastern Conference power to just seven shots through two periods before losing in a shootout. Monday night, the Ducks (43-14-7) have a second crack at Toronto right wing Phil Kessel, who scorched them for a hat trick Oct. 22 in the Maple Leafs' 4-2 home victory and resides on the highest scoring line in the NHL. The urgency of winning increased following the St. Louis Blues' Sunday victory that knocked the Ducks out of first place in the Western Conference for the first time this calendar year.

It wasn't the shiny glass and steel of Honda Center that made Randy Carlyle feel nostalgic Monday. Nor was it conducting the Toronto Maple Leafs' morning skate beneath the Stanley Cup banner he helped the Ducks win in 2007. The sight of two people, anonymous to fans but touchstones to him, brought out the mellow side of this gruff, old-school coach when he returned to Anaheim for the first time since the Ducks fired him on Nov. 30, 2011. "When you meet the parking lot attendant, the guy at the top of the ramp that you know, and he's the guy that used to look after your wife and your kids when you came to the rink and he was always a big happy guy to say hello, it's an emotional time to see him," Carlyle said.

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.

  When Corey Perry extended his hand to Stephane Robidas on Thursday, for once it wasn't in anger. The combative players have gotten under each other's skin frequently over the years, but they put their hostilities aside when the Ducks acquired Robidas from Dallas this week. "He came and shook my hand and it's all good," Robidas said after his first practice with his new team. "He's a competitor. He's a great player. And playing against him, you've always got to watch him. It's not easy to play against him. I'm just happy that I don't have to watch him anymore.

The Ducks did not remain satisfied with possessing the NHL's best record in the first week of March, trading forward Dustin Penner and goalie Viktor Fasth on Tuesday in exchange for veteran Dallas defenseman Stephane Robidas and a pair of draft picks. Penner, an unrestricted free agent at season's end who had 13 goals and 19 assists playing mostly alongside first-line stars Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry in his second stint with the Ducks, was dealt to the Washington Capitals for a fourth-round draft pick that the Ducks then swapped to Dallas.
