(SportsNetwork.com) - The rolling Anaheim Ducks will aim for a fifth straight victory on Sunday, when they welcome the Vancouver Canucks for a Pacific Division battle at the Honda Center. Anaheim enters Sunday leading the NHL with 29 points thanks to a stellar 14-3-1 record. The Ducks picked up a fourth straight win in Fridays rout of the visiting Buffalo Sabres and stayed perfect on home ice this season with a 7-0-0 record in Orange County. Ryan Getzlaf recorded his first career hat trick to lead the way in Fridays 6-2 blowout win over the Sabres. The centerman notched goals No. 8, 9 and 10 of the season in the easy victory and also added an assist. "You could tell, as soon as he started his skating, that Ryan was great. When we got the power-play goal early, it was because he did something he doesnt normally do, which is jump right into the play after a shot. As soon as he did that, I said Ok, hes going to have a good game. Consequently, he got four points in the first period," said Anaheim head coach Bruce Boudreau. Dustin Penner added a goal and three assists, while Cam Fowler and Andrew Cogliano both scored as well for the Ducks, who also improved to 7-0-1 over their past eight trips to the ice. Rookie netminder Frederik Andersen stopped 25-of-27 shots for his fifth win in as many starts. Jonas Hiller expects to get the start on Sunday and is 10-5-3 with a 3.03 goals against average in 19 career outings against the Canucks. The Ducks are closing a three-game homestand on Sunday before heading out on a four-game road trip. The swing is set to begin Tuesday at Florida. Sundays tilt is the first of five scheduled meetings between the Ducks and Canucks this season. The clubs are now in the same division thanks to the onset of realignment. Vancouver and Anaheim have alternated wins and losses over the last 11 meetings in this series, with the Ducks winning six times during that stretch. The Canucks have claimed two straight and three of the past four tilts at the Honda Center. Vancouver will try to bounce back from a rough loss after taking a 5-1 beating Saturday night in Los Angeles. The hometown Kings led 2-0 after the first period and were leading by the final 5-1 margin midway through the second. Dan Hamhuis scored the lone goal for Vancouver with Kevin Bieksa and Ryan Kesler picking up the helpers. It was the second loss in three games for the Canucks and their third setback in five trips to the ice. Roberto Luongo was chased from the net after allowing four goals on 18 shots. Eddie Lack stopped 13-of-14 shots in relief. "I thought in the first two periods we had surges early, but couldnt score. Its a 5-1 game and you think you got spanked, but I thought (Kings goaltender Jonathan) Quick made some really important saves at key times. We had some breakdowns, and its in the back of our net," said Vancouver head coach John Tortorella. Despite Saturdays loss, the Canucks still boast a solid 7-3-2 record on the road this season. The club is completing a four-game road trip tonight and will begin a six-game homestand with Thursdays showdown against San Jose. Alonzo Mourning Authentic Jersey .

"That was the first thought that came into my head, flashbacks to what happened on that day," said Schneider, who was a teammate of Fischer in Detroit that season. "Hes a big man and he collapsed right on me. That was one of the scariest moments of my career. At first you had no idea what was happening but then he started convulsing, it was really scary for everyone." Its the type of situation that nobody ever anticipates, even less so amongst a group of highly conditioned athletes in peak physical condition. "It was shocking particularly because Fischer was just an incredible athlete and in amazing shape, you dont expect it," said Schneider. "Last night was another very scary incident; I got texts as soon as it happened." Fischer was stabilized that day by the heroic work of Dr. Tony Collucci who was on the scene in seconds. His proximity to the bench played a big part in contributing to a positive result. As a result, the NHL requires that doctors have immediate access to the players bench to act in the case of such events transpiring. That scenario again played a role in helping to stabilize Peverley on Monday night as doctors were on the scene in seconds, able to treat the Stars forward for what team physician Gil Salazar termed a cardiac event. "Everything played out and transpired exactly as you would draw it up and luckily we had a fortunate result," said NHLL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.dddddddddddd "The leagues done a great job over the years to make sure every safety net is there and available to the guys," added Schneider. "In the two instances that Ive known, the doctors have literally saved the players lives." The news of Peverleys collapse quickly reached the leagues general managers who are gathered in Boca Raton, Florida for meetings this week. "Obviously it was a scary situation," said Daly. "We were all at a general managers dinner and we were alerted immediately to the events in Dallas. A number of us left the room and were being updated on a step by step basis to what was happening." Once it became clear what had transpired, Daly explained that the decision to postpone the game came at the urging of both the Dallas Stars and their opponents, the Columbus Blue Jackets. Having gone through a similar situation himself, Schneider agreed the right decision was made. "As a player being so close to your teammates, its too taxing, its too difficult to go back and I would think youd be playing half-heartedly in a situation like that," he said. Daly explained the NHL has identified a date to reschedule the game and intend to announce it later in the week. The Blue Jackets will be allowed to maintain their 1-0 lead that they had built through the first 6:23 of the game though a fresh sixty minutes will be played when the game is made up. The NHL followed the same procedure when the Red Wings and Predators game was completed in 2006 after Fischers incident, allowing Nashville to maintain their 1-0 lead. The Predators ultimately went on to win 3-2. cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '
