Perry scores twice as Ducks beat Jokerit in final pre-season warmup match

HELSINKI - Corey Perry scored two goals in the first period and provided the assist on Ryan Getzlaf's overtime winner as the Anaheim Ducks beat Finnish league leader Jokerit 4-3 in their final pre-season warmup Tuesday.

Swiss goalie Jonas Hiller shone in the second period and defenceman Cam Fowler put Anaheim up 3-1 in the closing seconds.

Jokerit rallied in the third with goals from Riku Hahl and American Ben Eaves to send the game into overtime.

Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle was satisfied with Perry, Getzlaf and Bobby Ryan in the top line, but still felt there was room for improvement before the team faces the Buffalo Sabres in Helsinki when the season gets under way on Friday.

"They were on the ice for the two goals in the third period, where there were a couple of overzealous rushes, too many odd-man rushes and we turned over pucks in the neutral zone," Carlyle said.

"But on Friday we'd like our big guys to score three goals again, that would be the first thing. And we'd like our goaltender to play as strong as he did tonight and give us a chance to win the hockey game."

On Saturday, Buffalo plays Los Angeles in Berlin, while Anaheim meets the New York Rangers in Stockholm.
