|Ducks Rout Blues 7-4 on Bobby Ryan's Hat Trick
|ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Bobby Ryan had three goals and an assist, All-Star selection Jonas Hiller made 30 saves, and the surging Anaheim Ducks beat the St. Louis Blues 7-4 Wednesday night for their sixth win in seven games.
Ryan scored twice in the first period and completed his third career hat trick 30 seconds into the third. Ryan later scored his career-best fourth point with an assist on All-Star pick Corey Perry's score during Anaheim's four-goal third period.
Lubomir Visnovsky had a power-play goal and two assists for the Ducks, who won three straight to wrap up a six-game homestand that catapulted them back into the Western Conference race.
All-Star selection David Backes scored two second-period goals for the Blues, who are winless in five straight games.
