Getzlaf leads Ducks past Stars 6-2 in Game 5

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and two assists in his return from injury, and the Anaheim Ducks scored four power-play goals in a 6-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Friday night to take a 3-2 lead in their first-round series.

Corey Perry also had a goal and two assists for the top-seeded Ducks, who confidently moved to the brink of the second round after dropping the last two games in Dallas.

Nick Bonino, Mathieu Perreault, Jakob Silfverberg and Rickard Rakell also scored for Anaheim, which set a franchise record for playoff power-play goals. The Ducks chased Kari Lehtonen with five goals on their first 21 shots.

Jamie Benn and Shawn Horcoff scored for the Stars, who couldn't score on seven power-play chances.

Game 6 is Sunday in Dallas.
