Ducks Beat San Jose 6-2 -- What a Night for Corey Perry!

Corey Perry became the third player in franchise history to reach the 50-goal mark (Paul Kariya had 50 goals in 1995-96 & Teemu Selanne had 51 goals in 1996-97 & 52 in 1997-98). It also marks the most goals scored by a Duck since Selanne’s 52 in 1997-98. Perry currently has six more goals than anyone else in the NHL (Stamkos, 44).

The last time a player in the Western Conference scored 50-or-more goals was Calgary’s Jarome Iginla in 2007-08 (50 goals).

Perry’s 50-47=97 points are the most by a Duck since 1997-98 when Teemu Selanne scored 47-60=107 and Paul Kariya collected 39-62=101.

Perry’s hat trick tonight was the third of his career (all in 2010-11). It marks just the second time in club history that a player had three hat tricks in one season (Teemu Selanne, three in 1997-98).

Perry’s 10-game point streak (14-8=22, +11) is tied for the longest current streak in the league (NSH’s Kostitsyn also currently has 10).

Perry’s four points (3-1=4) in tonight’s contest marks his third game with four-or-more points this season and fourth such game of his career. He also recorded his 200th NHL assist tonight.
