The Monday blahs took the Ducks to their knees.

There, Corey Perry did what he's done best this season: shoot and score.

Overcoming some letdown lethargy with three goals in the final eight minutes of the second period, the Ducks beat the New York Islanders, 5-2, improving to 11-0-2 at Honda Center.

Perry scored twice to extend his career-best goals streak to six games and move within two of NHL leader Alexander Ovechkin.
The first came with 1.7 seconds left in the second period and followed a short-handed goal from defenseman Cam Fowler that gave the Ducks (21-7-5) their first lead after twice trailing to a team that hasn't won in 10 games.

"Those things happen," Perry said of the Ducks' slow start that followed their impressive road sweep of defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago and St. Louis. "You're only human. Last week was emotional and coming off that high."

After helping to initiate a fight by getting tangled with Islanders goalie Andres Nilsson, Perry came out of the penalty box, collected the puck, skated toward Nilsson again, tripped over New York defenseman Calvin de Haan and scored from his knees to make it 4-2.
"I knew there were only seconds left," Perry said. "The guy tripped me … I shot and found a way to squeak in."

Crisp Ducks passing on a third-period power play led to a Nick Bonino shot that hit the post and caromed to Perry, who swept the rebound past Nilsson to effectively clinch the Ducks' third consecutive victory. They are tied with Chicago with a league-best 47 points.

Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau heaped praise on goalie Jonas Hiller for saving 35 of 37 shots from a team that fell to 8-18-5 and managed just 16 shots in Saturday's loss at the Kings.
