Perry’s hat trick leads Ducks over Sabres

Anaheim, CA ( – Corey Perry deposited his second hat
trick of the season to back another strong showing from Frederik Andersen, and
the Anaheim Ducks stayed hot with a 4-1 win over the scuffling Buffalo Sabres
on Wednesday.

Andersen followed up his first career shutout on Sunday against St. Louis by
stopping 22-of-23 shots in Anaheim’s sixth straight win.

Ryan Kesler scored a goal and Ryan Getzlaf added two assists for the Ducks,
who defeated the Sabres, 5-1, in Buffalo on Oct. 13.

Buffalo, which was coming off back-to-back losses via the shutout, had gone
exactly 197 minutes without a goal until Tyler Ennis lit the lamp late in the
third period.

Michal Neuvirth made 30 saves on 33 shots for the Sabres, who have dropped
three straight overall and six of seven to open the season.
