Recap


Ducks 2, Wild 1: Defenseman Luca Sbisa scored his first goal in nearly a year with 3:04 to play as visiting Anaheim rallied for its fourth consecutive victory.

Patrick Maroon scored the tying goal early in the third period and Jonas Hiller made 30 saves for the Ducks, who improved to 3-0-0 against Minnesota and halted a three-game winless streak (0-1-2) away from home.

Devin Setoguchi scored a power-play goal for the Wild, who dominated the first two periods with a 22-7 edge in shots. Minnesota, however, failed to score on a five-minute power play and a 90-second 5-on-3 advantage.

Setoguchi opened the scoring with exactly two minutes remaining in the opening period, taking a cross-ice feed from Matt Cullen near the left faceoff dot and sliding the puck between Hiller's legs.

Maroon, who was called up from Norfolk of the American Hockey League on Monday, scored on Anaheim's eighth shot, reaching out with one hand to tuck a ricochet past Niklas Backstrom (19 saves). Sbisa delivered the game-winner with a blast on the rebound of Teemu Selanne's shot for his first goal since March 16, 2012.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Ducks RW Corey Perry received an interference major and game misconduct early in the second period for a blindside hit to the head of Wild LW Jason Zucker, which left the rookie prone on the ice for several minutes. ... Setoguchi's goal was the seventh power-play tally in the last eight games for the Wild and marked the fifth consecutive contest in which they have scored first. ... Ducks G Viktor Fasth suffered an upper-body injury in Tuesday's morning skate, prompting the team to call up Jeff Deslauriers from Fort Wayne of the East Coast Hockey League.
