Edmonton center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins earned his 51st point of the season with an assist on Hartikainen's second goal and is tied with Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog for NHL lead among rookies, one ahead of New Jersey's Adam Henrigue. No Oilers player has ever won the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year. Nugent-Hopkins has played in 59 games -- 21 fewer than Landeskog and 12 fewer than Henrigue.
The Ducks' record at Honda Center was 20-18-2. One other game that counted on their home record was a 2-1 shootout win over the New York Rangers in Stockholm during a season-opening two-game trip that included a 4-1 loss to the Buffalo Sabres in Finland.
NOTES: Anaheim concludes its schedule with a three-game trip through Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary. Unless the Ducks score five more goals, they would finish with fewer than 200 for the fifth time in franchise history and the first time since 2007-08. They entered Sunday averaging 2.4. ... The only team to shut out the Ducks in Anaheim this season was Buffalo, when Ryan Miller made 43 saves in the Sabres' 2-1 win. ... The Ducks sold out nine of their 40 games in Anaheim and were 4-5 in those contests. Eight of the sellouts were SRO crowds in excess of Honda Center's 17,174 capacity. But they had 16 crowds under 14,000. ... Getzlaf has scored seven of his nine goals on home ice. His only goals on the road came in back-to-back games Oct. 25-27 against Chicago and Minnesota. By contrast, 13 of Selanne's 26 goals have been scored on the road, as have 17 of Corey Perry's 36 goals and 11 of Bobby Ryan's 28. ... Anaheim D Mat Clark made his NHL debut at age 21. The 6-foot-3, 216-pounder was a second-round pick in the 2009 draft. He had three goals, 194 penalty minutes and a plus-22 rating in 136 games over the past two seasons with Syracuse in the AHL.
