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.

EDMONTON, Canada -- Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau added another player into the first-line rotation Friday morning, moving center Nick Bonino to left wing alongside stars Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry before Friday night's game against the Edmonton Oilers. Teemu Selanne, who had two goals and two assists in five games on the line, was moved back to right wing with center Mathieu Perreault and forward Patrick Maroon. Selanne, Getzlaf and Perry were held scoreless Wednesday in a 3-2 victory at Calgary, when Getzlaf lost 15 of 18 face-offs.

CALGARY, Canada -- Teemu Selanne's increasing production of two goals and two assists in his past four games alongside Ducks' first-line stars Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf could alter the veteran's handling. Selanne, 43, said Wednesday before the Ducks' game against the Calgary Flames that he feels energized enough to play on back-to-back game days if called upon. The Ducks play in Edmonton and Vancouver on Friday and Saturday, respectively. Before the season began, Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau and Selanne crafted a strategy to give Selanne one game off when the Ducks confronted back-to-back games in what he's said will be his final season.

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 -- Corey Perry saw an official's key call go against him, watched the San Jose Sharks celebrate their first lead in the Pacific Division since Dec. 5 and witnessed the official collapse of what on Jan. 15 was a 13-point division lead. At a moment to crumble, Perry found resolve. “We've got a game in hand still, we win that, it's back even,” Perry said following the Ducks' 3-2 loss to the Sharks at SAP Center. “It's not over until it's the last game of the season.

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.

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.

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.
