Final Score: Anaheim 1, Detroit 0
Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Jonas Hiller won his club-record 14th
straight start thanks to a 22-save shutout, as the Anaheim Ducks earned their
seventh consecutive victory with a 1-0 decision over the Detroit Red Wings on
Sunday at Honda Center.
Andrew Cogliano netted the game's only goal in the second period as the Ducks
notched their 17th win in their last 18 games while improving to 19-0-2 at
home this season.
Hiller has been a key component of the Ducks' recent dominance, as the 31-
year-old netminder became just the fifth goaltender to win 14 straight
and the first since Pittsburgh's Tom Barrasso in 1992-93.
"He's the reason for this little streak," Cogliano said of Hiller. "He's been
playing really well."
Petr Mrazek played admirably in defeat, stopping 22-of-23 shots for the Red
Wings, who have lost four of their last six games.
"They're finding a way to win every night and we're not finding a way to win
every night," Detroit head coach Mike Babcock said. "We would like to be more
like them to be honest with you."
Cogliano supplied Hiller with the only support he needed at 12:42 of the
middle stanza when he cut to the net and tipped in a centering feed from Saku
Koivu to make it 1-0 for the hosts.
Detroit had a prime opportunity to find the equalizer after Anaheim's Teemu
Selanne went off for tripping at 16:20 of the third, but Hiller stood tall
between the pipes down the stretch to secure his third shutout of the season.
The Red Wings outshot the Ducks, 10-6, in the first, but failed to get
anything past Hiller as the teams went into the first intermission in a
Hiller has 19 career shutouts ... The Ducks had scored four-or-more goals in a
franchise record six straight games coming into the tilt ... Detroit finished
0-for-5 on the power play ... Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf missed the game
with a lower-body injury.
