ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Another home game for the Ducks meant another win. As it has been all season.
The Ducks continued their remarkable run at Honda Center on Tuesday night, using three power-play goals to roll past the Boston Bruins, 5-2, in front of an announced overflow crowd of 17,238.
Mathieu Perreault got his first two-goal game with the Pacific Division-leading Ducks (32-8-5), who also got scores from Corey Perry, Andrew Cogliano and Nick Bonino to improve the NHL's best home record to 18-0-2.
"It's hard to not pay attention to it a little bit," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "But we don't talk about it, like in the room and everything else."
Jonas Hiller was brilliant in the first period and finished with 30 saves to win his club-record 12th consecutive start. Hiller's best save came on a lunging highlight-reel glove grab of Brad Marchand's one-timer to keep it scoreless in the first.
"Those things, you don't make them every night," Hiller said. "I definitely take them when they come. I think it got the crowd into it and the whole team."
Perreault lit the scoreboard first with a one-time shot to convert Teemu Selanne's pass with Hamilton serving a holding minor in the second period. The assist was Selanne's first point in six games and just his fifth in his past 25.
Perry made it 2-0 with the Ducks' second goal in as many power plays as he jumped on a rebound left by Boston goalie Tuukka Rask on a shot by Nick Bonino.
Cogliano continued his breakout season by following up on some great work by Daniel Winnik on the penalty kill, banging in a feed from his linemate past Rask for a three-goal advantage.
Daniel Paille cut it to 3-1 for Boston (28-13-2) in the final minute of the second and Dougie Hamilton made it a one-goal game seven minutes into the third.
But Bonino finished off a pass from Ryan Getzlaf to make it 4-2 and then Perreault added the final touch at 17:29 of the third.
"We get contributions all through our lineup, all through the year," Perreault said. "From game one until now, we get different guys to score every night. That's what makes good teams and great teams."
