Ducks hold on late to down Wild

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - The Anaheim Ducks' success at home continued Friday night, but they will have to do a better job playing a full 60 minutes after nearly squandering a comfortable lead in a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild.

The Ducks carried a three-goal cushion into the third period, only to see the Wild strike in the frame's opening minute and again just past the midway point.

Things got even more tense when Anaheim defenseman Francois Beauchemin tripped Matt Cullen with 3:17 remaining. Late in the ensuing power play, Wild goaltender Darcy Kuemper went to the bench to make it 6-on-4.

Minnesota had a couple chances, but weren't able to come up with an equalizer as the Ducks ran their winning streak at Honda Center to eight games.
