Ryan Getzlaf came to terms on a contract extension with the Anaheim Ducks Friday, then promptly scored a goal and an assist in the team's 4-0 win over the visiting Calgary Flames a few hours later.
Not a bad way to start the weekend.
Getzlaf added the final goal of the night, and assisted on Bobby Ryan's goal in the second period.
Getzlaf, the Ducks 27-year-0ld captain and the team's first-round pick in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, now has seven points in his last three games.

Los Angeles Times sports columnist Helene Elliott caught up with Ducks general manager Bob Murray about where contract talks stand with Perry, then posted the conversation via Twitter.
