Kyle Palmieri found out only Wednesday morning that he would get the latest turn at playing alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on the Ducks' revolving door top line. Palmieri just might stay there for a bit after one big night. Two nights after their six-game winning streak ended against the Kings, the Ducks steamrolled to a 5-1 victory at Honda Center behind Palmieri's first career hat trick. The Ducks (14-3-1) responded to their second loss in 12 games by building a 3-0 first-period and ending goalie Pekka Rinne's night after 40 minutes. Palmieri was the star as he finished off three plays created by linemates Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. His natural three-consecutive-goal trick — the sixth in franchise history — was complete when he knocked in a pass from Perry for a power-play goal one minute into the second period. "I couldn't believe it at first," Palmieri said. "It was kind of a quick play there. I wasn't actually sure if it went in. When the ref gave the signal, it was a pretty awesome feeling." Palmieri grabbed the goal-scoring lead on the balanced and deep Ducks with seven. Getzlaf said "he'll probably get one more game" on their line. "He's a shooter, for one," Getzlaf said. "That's a big portion of it. Kyle does a great job finding the areas. You look at all his goals tonight. He's got the speed on the outside and then he finds those areas. That's what we need. That's what I live for." - See more at:
