ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Corey Perry capped his third career hat trick with his NHL-leading 50th goal during a dynamic four-point performance, and the Anaheim Ducks kept pace in a tight playoff race with a 6-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday night.

Rookie Cam Fowler, Teemu Selanne and Jason Blake also scored as Anaheim rebounded from back-to-back losses to stay in a seventh-place tie with Chicago in the Western Conference standings. Both clubs have 95 points apiece and two games to go.

The Ducks’ victory eliminated the Calgary Flames, but the 10th-place Dallas Stars still have a chance with 91 points and a game in hand.

Perry all but wrapped up his first Richard Trophy with the biggest night yet in his remarkable late-season scoring binge.
