While the Ducks played good hockey, the Canucks didn't help their situation, with 58 penalty minutes in the final period of the game. This gave the Ducks a huge boost, and they took advantage of it. 

The players who scored the goals were Corey Perry (2), Teemu Selanne (2), Nick Bonino (2), Andrew Cogliano (1), Jakob Silfverberg (1), and Sami Vatanen (1), and with nine goals, they set the new franchise record.

The Ducks are tied with the 1967-68 Montreal Canadiens as the only teams who have won 18 of their last 19 games. Also, according to SI.com, "The Ducks also improved to 20-0-2 at Honda Center, matching San Jose's 2008-09 start for the longest home points streak to open a season in the last 34 years."

The fact that six of these goals were on power plays is incredibly encouraging because up until this point, the Ducks had seven on the entire season.
