PERRY LIFTS DUCKS TO EIGHTH CONSECUTIVE VICTORY
Corey Perry (3-1—4) factored on all four of his team’s goals, including scoring the game-winner at 1:27 of the third period, to guide the Ducks to their eighth consecutive win and a 15-1-1 record in their last 17 games. Anaheim’s eight-game winning streak is two shy of the franchise record from Dec. 6-28, 2013 (10-0-0).
* At 34-19-8 (76 points), the Ducks maintained a four-point edge over the Sharks (33-22-6, 72 points) – who also won on Sunday – for second place in the Pacific Division. They also climbed within two points of the Kings (37-21-4, 78 points) for first.
* The Ducks concluded the month of February with a 12-1-1 record, the most victories (12) and standings points (25) earned in one calendar month in franchise history.
* Perry registered the ninth hat trick of his NHL career and first since Jan. 14, 2015 vs. TOR (3-0—3). In addition to his fifth multi-goal game of the season, Perry added an assist to record his first four-point outing of the campaign. He leads the club with 26 goals.
* Per Elias, Perry surpassed Paul Kariya (8) for the second-most regular-season hat tricks in franchise history:
Most Regular-Season Hat Tricks, Ducks History
13 – Teemu Selanne
9 – Corey Perry
8 – Paul Kariya
* Ryan Getzlaf (0-1—1) extended his point streak to 11 games (5-12—17), the longest by a Ducks player since his own 14-game streak from Nov. 5 – Dec. 15, 2014 (10-13—23). He paces the team in assists (42) and points (51) this season.

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,
When the country’s two sports television networks tear into each other on Monday in the ultimate bit of Canadiana – all-day live coverage of deadline day in the NHL for making trades – the goal of each of them, aside from ratings, is beating the other guy by a few seconds to announce a trade first.
But no matter who wins the intense battle for scoops between TSN and Sportsnet, there is one fact neither network can argue: TSN’s Bob McKenzie is the most trusted source of hockey information on any media platform. He may not always be first with the trade announcements or other news, although he is not often beaten, but he is always right.
“Bob is the ultimate clearinghouse for hockey information, that is his role,” said Steve Dryden, TSN’s senior managing editor for content. He has worked with McKenzie since the late 1980s when they were both at The Hockey News. “He is the ultimate triumph of substance over style.”
asked NHL why clock was not reset after apparent Kings goal was disallowed after review. awaiting answer. will pass along when i hear.
Mistake by the timekeepers in not resetting clock to time of offside, NHL exec told me.
Darryl Sutter via Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider,
On the officials failing to put time on the clock after the disallowed goal:
Well, there should have been. Were you watching the game? … So should there have been time? … So if you thought there should and they didn’t, then they made a mistake, didn’t they? Ask the question in full so I can know what you’re talking about.
The Ducks defeated the Kings 4-2 and you can watch the offside challenge below...
