The Ducks came up short in their bid to become the first team in NHL history to win 19 times in a span of 20 games. Anaheim goaltender Jonas Hiller also had his club-record winning streak end at 14. Hiller wound up tied with Tom Barrasso for the second-most consecutive wins in one season.
Anaheim then made a game of it with Ryan Getzlaf and Kyle Palmieri scoring in a span of 53 seconds. Hossa, however, clinched the game with an empty-net goal.
Corey Crawford picked up his first victory since Nov. 29 by making 19 saves.
