Blackhawks return to losing ways on road with 6-3 loss to Ducks

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Blackhawks goalie Anton Forsberg might as well have dropped his stick and held up a sign that read "10" as an ode to Corey Perry's performance.

He would have had just as much of a chance of stopping Perry's ballerina-like spin move that accounted for the Ducks' second puck in the net during their 6-3 victory Sunday afternoon at Honda Center.

The Blackhawks showed little fight -- save for the one Jonathan Toews got into with Ryan Kesler eight seconds into the second -- in their eighth road loss in nine tries.

Forsberg was pulled in the second period, and for the seventh time this season the Hawks used more than one goalie in a game.

Jakob Silfverberg and Perry each scored twice for the Ducks, and Andrew Cogliano, Ryan Getzlaf and Derek Grant each had two assists.

Nick Schmaltz scored twice for the Blackhawks, who also got a goal from Tomas Jurco.
