Ducks' Ryan Getzlaf bags two

December 7, 2008 |  6:51 pm

Ryan Getzlaf continues to prove he deserves to be included among the top players in the game as he scored two goals in the second period Sunday to give the Ducks a 3-1 lead over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Getzlaf scored both goals by going to the net. He scooped in his own rebound to break a scoreless tie 1 minute 33 seconds into the period. His second came as he crashed the net to chip in a loose puck for a 3-1 lead 17:55 into the period.

Of the Ducks' last 26 goals, Getzlaf has been on the ice for 17, with five goals and 14 points during that 11-game stretch.

Getzlaf has 12 goals and 34 points this season.
