ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) John Gibson knew his Anaheim Ducks had every right to be exhausted late in their third game in three cities over four nights. The 21-year-old goalie also recognized the high stakes for Anaheim against the Montreal Canadiens.

So Gibson put the weary Ducks on his shoulders for yet another victory - and he even outplayed Carey Price to do it.

Gibson made 37 saves, and Anaheim moved back atop the overall NHL standings with a 3-1 victory Wednesday night in a meeting of conference leaders.
