Ducks Skate Past Flyers 5-2
ANAHEIM (AP) — Jason Blake and defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky each scored two goals and Jonas Hiller made 35 saves, leading the Anaheim Ducks to a 5-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night.
Bobby Ryan also scored and Teemu Selanne, Saku Koivu, Toni Lydman each had two assists for the Ducks, who began a six-game homestand following a seven-game stretch away from Honda Center that included a 4-1 loss up the freeway against the Los Angeles Kings.
Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf, who scored the go-ahead goal in the final 2 minutes of the Ducks’ 3-2 win at Philadelphia on Oct. 21, missed his first game of the season because of multiple nasal fractures after getting hit in the forehead by Shane Doan’s deflected slap shot Tuesday night at Phoenix.
