Ducks edge 'Canes on Koivu's SO winner

Saku Koivu scored game-wining goal in the 2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes at RBC Center.

Koivu picked up the puck and moved in slowly before deking to his backhand then switching to his forehand in close and sliding the puck past Hurricanes netminder Justin Peters.

Jonas Hiller stopped Jeff Skinner, Eric Staal and Brandon Sutter to secure the win for the Ducks.

Luca Sbisa and Corey Perry scored in regulation for the Ducks, winners in two of their last three games. Hiller finished with 30 saves on 32 shots.

Jerome Samson and Jamie McBain lit the lamp for the Hurricanes, who got 35 saves from Peters in defeat.
