Ducks 4 Oilers 2

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Bobby Ryan scored the tiebreaking goal on a breakaway with 11:51 to play, and Corey Perry netted two goals in the frantic final minutes of the Anaheim Ducks’ 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night.

Jonas Hiller made 34 saves in his 26th consecutive start for the Ducks, who aren’t giving up on their unlikely playoff hopes. Anaheim finished a brutal stretch of six games in nine days in 12th place in the Western Conference with 68 points, five behind eighth-place San Jose.

Perry scored his 200th career goal with 3:20 to play before putting another puck into an empty net with 1:14 left. Jordan Eberle scored a power-play goal for Edmonton in between Perry’s goals, but the Ducks hung on to earn their 42nd point since Jan. 1, tying them with St. Louis for the NHL’s best record in 2012.
