The craziest of days in a thrilling Ducks season to date ended the same way many others have – they won.
The Ducks lost one goalie to injury earlier Tuesday and their star winger was ejected for a violent hit minutes into the second period against the Minnesota Wild, but they still emerged with a 2-1 comeback victory at Xcel Energy Center.
For different reasons, Viktor Fasth and Corey Perry could be lost for some length of time.
It didn't stop the Ducks (19-3-3), who shook off two bad periods by getting a stellar outing from goalie Jonas Hiller and third-period goals from Patrick Maroon and Luca Sbisa.
"I think it was a good team effort after the first period," Sbisa said. "We weren't happy with the way we were playing the first period. A couple of voices were raised here during intermission.
"It got us going. Hillsy kept us in the game the whole time and (we) came out with a road win."
