ANAHEIM, Calif. - Corey Perry scored two goals and captain Ryan Getzlaf extended his point streak to 12 games in the Anaheim Ducks' 5-2 victory over the spiraling New York Islanders on Monday night.
Cam Fowler had his first career short-handed goal and added two assists. Saku Koivu scored his first goal in nearly two months in the Ducks' third consecutive win and the Islanders' 10th straight loss.
Perry scored a goal in his career-best sixth straight game late in the second period, and he added a power-play goal in the third to clinch the sixth 20-goal season of his career.
Andrew Cogliano also scored, and Jonas Hiller made 35 saves for Anaheim.
John Tavares and Thomas Vanek scored for the Islanders, who also have lost 10 consecutive road games since Nov. 1.
Anders Nilsson stopped 26 shots for New York, but the Ducks overcame two early deficits with another dominant performance. Anaheim improved to 11-0-2 at Honda Center, still the only NHL team without a regulation home loss this season.
PENGUINS 2, BLUE JACKETS 1
PITTSBURGH (AP)—Evgeni Malkin scored in his return from a lower-body injury, Sidney Crosby added his 16th goal, and Pittsburgh beat Columbus.

Malkin missed two games last week after being injured during a morning skate. He looked fine while bulling his way toward the net 4:16 into the second period for his eighth goal of the season. Crosby pushed his season-point total to an NHL-best 43 when he deflected in a shot by Pascal Dupuis midway through the third.
