Ducks Rally To Win – NHL Roundup For Oct. 30th
UNDATED (AP) — Kyle Palmieri allowed the Anaheim Ducks to improve to 10-3 this season, currently the NHL’s third-best record.
Palmeiri scored the tying and winning goals in the third period as the Ducks rallied to beat the Flyers 3-2 in Philadelphia. The Flyers led 2-0 until Andrew Cogliano tallied late in the second period. Jonas Hiller turned back 26 shots and was perfect after Vincent Lecavalier (leh-KAV’-ul-yay) notched a power-play goal 16:34 into the game.
The Ducks finished the game without forward Teemu Selanne (TAY’-moo seh-LAH’-nee), who left after being struck by Luke Schenn’s high stick to the face in the third period.
