Hurricanes upend Ducks 3-2 in shootout

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Chris Terry scored the winner in the shootout to lift the Carolina Hurricanes to a 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.
    
Alexander Semin and Drayson Bowman scored for Carolina in regulation while Justin Peters made 28 saves.
    
Peters, who is filling in for the injured Cam Ward and Anton Khudobin, helped Carolina conclude a 4-0-1 homestand by making 138 saves on 144 shots in the five games.
    
Corey Perry had a goal and an assist for the Ducks while Dustin Penner also scored.
    
In his first game since being activated from injured reserved on Thursday, Viktor Fasth stopped 21 shots.
    
After a nine-game stretch in which they went 8-0-1, the Ducks have lost three in a row. Anaheim entered Friday leading the NHL with 31 points.
    
Perry and Carolina's Riley Nash had scored earlier in the shootout, but Terry won it when he skated quickly at Fasth and made a move before going to his backhand for the goal.
    
Earlier in the third period, Penner tied the score at 2 with a one-timer on the power play at 7:18. Penner's stick broke on the play, but the puck managed to flutter into the net.
    
The Ducks entered the game ranked 28th on the power play, having scored eight goals. Only two of those had come on the road.
    
Carolina took a 2-1 lead 3:01 into the third period when Bowman collected the puck off the boards and charged the net, shoveling the puck past Fasth after he skated along the goal line.
    
After the first 35 minutes had few scoring chances, Anaheim and Carolina both struck in the final five minutes of the second period.
    
The Ducks opened the scoring when Carolina's Justin Faulk made an ill-advised pass through the middle of the ice from deep in his own zone. Anaheim's Ryan Getzlaf intercepted the puck and passed it to Perry, who snapped it past from Peters from close range at 18:00 of the second.
    
Perry entered the night tied for sixth in the NHL with 11 goals.
    
Carolina answered 1:43 later with a power-play goal. Semin skated across the blue line and created space by cutting across the middle of the zone. After delaying for an extra second, Semin sent a wrist shot that beat a screened Fasth high on the glove side.
    
It was Semin's first goal since Oct. 24, a span of eight games.
    
NOTES: Getzlaf returned to the Ducks' lineup after missing three games with an upper-body injury. ... After its five-game homestand, Carolina will play three of its next four on the road, beginning Saturday night in St. Louis.
