Ryan Getzlaf, Teemu Selanne lead Ducks to win over Stars

Getzlaf has a goal and two assists, Selanne also scores a goal in 5-2 victory as Viktor Fasth stops 23 shots. The team acquires center Matthew Lombardi.

By Lance Pugmire

April 3, 2013, 11:36 p.m.

The Ducks on Wednesday added a player who could be the final piece in their bid to win the Stanley Cup this season. They then moved within two points of catching Western Conference leader Chicago.

"We're plugging along," Ducks defenseman Sheldon Souray said after the Ducks beat the Dallas Stars for the second time in three days, 5-2, at Honda Center.

"We'd like to be the best. We'll keep working until we get there."

The Ducks acquired center Matthew Lombardi from the Phoenix Coyotes for left wing Brandon McMillan, a move intended to boost depth at a position of need.

But adding depth appeared to be an act of greed on a night when 13 Ducks scored points — including captain Ryan Getzlaf's fourth three-point game of the season on a goal and two assists — and goaltender Viktor Fasth stopped 23 shots and kept Dallas scoreless until the third period.

The Ducks are now 25-7-5.

"The guys do have a great team," Lombardi (eight points this season) said in a telephone interview from Phoenix on Wednesday. "I want to help any way I can."

He might be needed to spell Getzlaf some extra minutes.

The captain left the ice after his goal with 9 minutes 30 seconds remaining in the game with what appeared to be right leg or knee pain.

Getzlaf was iced down afterward and unavailable for comment, but Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said he didn't expect the injury

to produce an absence Friday when the Ducks and Stars (16-17-3) play again.

"He scored the goal, and I said, 'That's enough,'" Boudreau said.

In his third game as a Duck, veteran right wing Radek Dvorak scored his first goal with Anaheim 11:44 into the game for a 1-0 lead.

After Dallas failed even to get a shot off in the game's first six minutes, Getzlaf launched a hard pass 12

feet in front of the goal to Dvorak, who swatted it past Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen.

"Beautiful," Dvorak said of Getzlaf's assist. "One of the best passers in the league."

Getzlaf again assisted when Teemu Selanne gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead on a power-play goal after a tripping call against Dallas defenseman Alex Goligoski.

Five minutes later, with 3:22 remaining in the second period, 22-year-old wing Kyle Palmieri rushed the Dallas goal and slid the puck past Lehtonen in the crease.

Fasth was beaten twice in the third period.

First, Erik Cole took a pass behind the net and Fasth's left shoulder from Vernon Fiddler and scored less than three minutes into the third.

Then, after Getzlaf made it 4-1 with a backhanded shot for his 13th goal of the season, Dallas' Lane MacDermid fired a shot to Fasth's right with 1:24 left in the game.

An empty-net goal by the Ducks Andrew Cogliano, his 11th, followed in the final seconds.

The Ducks also traded minor league goaltender Jeff Deslauriers to the Minnesota Wild for future considerations.

Deslauriers was dealt from a position of strength, since the Ducks possess Jonas Hiller and Fasth.

Lombardi, 31, has previously played with Ducks Daniel Winnik in Phoenix, David Steckel in Toronto and Toni Lydman in Calgary.

His contract expires at season's end.

"My speed is my game, getting to both ends of the rink quickly and creating opportunities offensively with it," Lombardi said.

Ducks make moves as deals materialize close to the trading deadline

Ducks get center Matthew Lombardi from Phoenix for wing Brandon McMillan and send goalie Jeff Deslauriers to Minnesota for future considerations. Most of the league-wide deals come in the hour before the cutoff time.

By Helene Elliott

April 4, 2013

Like the NHL season, the annual deadline-day trading frenzy was late in starting. But a flurry of deals in the hour before Wednesday's noon Pacific time cutoff changed the complexion of several teams and added depth to others hoping for long playoff runs.

The Ducks, seeking strength up the middle, acquired veteran center Matthew Lombardi from the Phoenix Coyotes for left wing Brandon McMillan. They also traded goalie Jeff Deslauriers to the Minnesota Wild for future considerations.

"The guys have a great team with depth," said Lombardi, who can become an unrestricted free agent after the season. "It's nice to go where they want you and I want to help any way I can."

The Kings didn't make any trades Wednesday. They made their big move Monday by acquiring rugged defenseman Robyn Regehr from the Buffalo Sabres for second-round draft picks in 2014 and 2015.

Deadline day had lost some of its impact because many prominent players were traded in the last few weeks. But the ambitious Columbus Blue Jackets spiced things up by acquiring three-time 40-goal scorer Marian Gaborik from the New York Rangers, with defensemen Steven Delisle and Blake Partlett, for center Derick Brassard, injured right wing Derek Dorsett, defenseman John Moore and a sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft.

Gaborik, who had been in Coach John Tortorella's doghouse, waived his no-trade clause to join a team that's on an upswing under General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen and hockey operations President John Davidson. The Rangers removed his $7.5-million salary-cap hit from their books, freeing them to re-sign core young players this summer.

"He's a good man and I'll miss him," Tortorella told reporters in New York.

The retooling Sabres traded team captain Jason Pominville to the surging Wild for two prospects and first- and second-round draft picks. Pominville, a six-time 20-goal scorer, should bring some punch to Minnesota's right side.

Also of note, the Pittsburgh Penguins acquired Jussi Jokinen from Carolina for a conditional draft pick and planned to slot him into Sidney Crosby's spot. Crosby has a broken jaw and is out indefinitely.

The Philadelphia Flyers, eternally vexed by their goaltending, acquired Steve Mason from Columbus for Michael Leighton to be the backup for Ilya Bryzgalov, and the San Jose Sharks acquired abrasive forward Raffi Torres from Phoenix for a draft pick. Torres has twice knocked Sharks players out of the playoffs, with a blindside hit on Milan Michalek in 2006 and a hit that separated Joe Thornton's shoulder in 2011 when Torres was with Vancouver.

Two goalies reported to be on the move instead stayed put. Calgary's Miikka Kiprusoff refused to waive his no-trade clause and will retire after this season, and Vancouver kept Roberto Luongo, who has nine years left on his contract at an annual cap hit of $5.333 million.

"I'd scrap it if I could right now," Luongo said of his contract during a news conference in Vancouver.

Final: Ducks 5, Stars 2

April 3rd, 2013, 9:35 pm by ERIC STEPHENS

ANAHEIM -- Ryan Getzlaf scored his 150th career goal and assisted on two others Wednesday night to lead the Ducks to a 5-2 victory over the Dallas Stars at Honda Center.

Radek Dvorak got his first goal as a Duck to start the scoring in the first period while Teemu Selanne and Kyle Palmieri broke the game open with tallies in the second.

The Ducks (25-7-5) won their second in a row over Dallas in the span of three nights and now have points in their last four games after losing four in a row. They'll take on the Stars again Friday night.

Dallas appeared to wave the white flag when it dealt away forwards Jaromir Jagr, Derek Roy and Tomas Vincour after a 4-0 home loss to the Ducks on Monday night. The Ducks rolled again, facing a team with Jamie Benn, Loui Eriksson, Kari Lehtonen and a cadre of prospects.

Selanne made it 2-0 with a power-play score for the 673rd of his career while Palmieri got his first goal in his last 14 games when he jammed the puck past Lehtonen after getting a free pass to the net.

Getzlaf makes the best moves in Ducks victory


ANAHEIM – A quiet trade deadline day perked up near the final buzzer with notable moves made by contending teams around the league. The Ducks jumped in by picking up speedy center Matthew Lombardi.

But the Ducks' biggest move to address the middle came weeks earlier and again paid a big dividend Wednesday night.

Ryan Getzlaf continued to earn that eight-year, $66-million contract extension with another dominating night in powering his team to a 5-2 victory over the Dallas Stars at Honda ...

DUCKS 5, DALLAS 2: Ducks make deal with Phoenix for center Lombardi

The NHL's trade deadline came and went Wednesday and the Ducks made only a minor tweak to their roster, keeping their talented core group together for a stretch run that looked all the more promising after a 5-2 victory over the Dallas Stars at Honda Center.

Ducks general manager Bob Murray wanted to acquire a speedy center to add depth to a lineup with plenty of speed and depth. Murray also hoped to do it without having to part with anyone from a team that's all but sealed the franchise's second Pacific Division title.

So, he dealt left wing Brandon McMillan to the Phoenix Coyotes for center Matthew Lombardi, swapping a minor-league player who appeared in only six games this season for the Ducks for a 31-year-old who has 262 points (101 goals, 161 assists) in 529 games in the NHL.

Lombardi didn't make it to the Honda Center in time to join his new teammates for their game against the trade-depleted Stars. He is expected to participate in today's practice and to play in Friday's rematch against Dallas at Honda Center, however.

"First and foremost, I'm going to a great team and Stanley Cup contender," Lombardi said. "That's super exciting. It's a great team. To be able to be a part of that is pretty cool. I'm looking forward to it. That's all you can ask for, to be honest with you, to play and go for a Stanley Cup."

The Ducks hardly needed Lombardi's speed or experience against a team that hardly resembled the one they blanked

4-0 on Monday in Dallas. The Stars on Tuesday traded Jaromir Jagr to the Boston Bruins, Derek Roy to the Vancouver Canucks and Tomas Vincour to the Colorado Avalanche.

Radek Dvorak scored his first goal with the Ducks in his third game after he signed as a free agent March 26, a one-timer off a flawless cross-ice pass from Ryan Getzlaf at 11:44 of the first period. Teemu Selanne (power play) and Kyle Palmieri scored in the second for the Ducks.

Getzlaf also assisted on Selanne's 673rd career goal. The Ducks team captain then gave their fans a scare when he went to the dressing room after taking a tumble after a collision with the Stars' Jamie Benn in the opening minutes of the third period.

Getzlaf, the Ducks' leading scorer with 43 points, returned to the ice soon enough and scored their fourth goal off a backhander after a pretty pass from Corey Perry. Getzlaf nearly scored on a partial breakaway moments earlier, but Dallas' Kari Lehtonen made a sprawling stop.

Ducks goaltender Viktor Fast tried to secure his second consecutive shutout of the Stars. He blanked them on 26 shots Monday in the final game of a four-game trip that features a third straight win over the NHL-leading Chicago Blackhawks.

The Stars finally got one past Fasth when Erik Cole scored to trim the Ducks' lead to 3-1 only 2:48 into the third period. Despite their patchwork lineup, the Stars had their moments against the Ducks, who weren't as overpowering as they might have been.


The Ducks traded goalie Jeff Deslauriers to the Minnesota Wild for future considerations. Deslauriers played with the Fort Wayne Komets of the ECHL.
