Video: Goal and point streaks - Perry and Getzlaf do it all in Anaheim

Anaheim's one-time Hart Trophy winner has been on a tear lately, scoring scoring eight goals over a seven-game goal scoring streak. Suddenly he's tied with Alex Steen for second behind Alex Ovechkin in league goals. The Getzlaf-Perry combination is one of the most difficult for defenses to handle in the NHL, especially when Perry gets his sniper legs under him, as has been the case lately.

Don't look now, but here comes Corey Perry.

Anaheim's one-time Hart Trophy winner has been on a tear lately, scoring scoring eight goals over a seven-game goal scoring streak. Suddenly he's tied with Alex Steen for second behind Alex Ovechkin in league goals. The Getzlaf-Perry combination is one of the most difficult for defenses to handle in the NHL, especially when Perry gets his sniper legs under him, as has been the case lately.

Some of them have been darn pretty, destined for the highlight reel. Like this one from Monday night against the Islanders.

But sometimes when you get going on these runs, the bounces just start happening for you. Perry had to briefly leave Wednesday night's game against Minnesota after colliding with teammate Hampus Lindholm, but he returned to keep his streak alive. This one wasn't as pretty as Monday's, but it was still a nifty chip that showed off his hand-eye coordination.

There's no secret the Ducks' heart and sole is with the dynamic duo on its top line. Getzlaf and Perry look more and more like locks for Team Canada with each passing game. On top of the goal scoring streak, Perry has 12 points in his past nine games now. But how about Getzlaf? With an assist Wednesday night, the big-bodied center is now on a 15-game point streak, during which he has 22 points.

Getzlaf is now tied for third in league scoring, while Perry is two points behind in fifth.

So which is more impressive: a seven-game goal scoring streak, or 15-game point streak?

Getzlaf or Perry? Batman or Superman?
