ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Rookie goalie Frederik Andersen won for the sixth time in as many NHL games, making 35 saves in place of ailing Jonas Hiller, and the league-leading Anaheim Ducks extended their winning streak to five with a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night.
Corey Perry had a goal and an assist, Nick Bonino got the go-ahead goal in the final minute of the second period and Andrew Cogliano added an empty-netter, helping Anaheim improve the NHL’s best record to 15-3-1 and the best home start in franchise history to 8-0.
The Ducks are the league’s only undefeated team on home ice, and the first to win their first eight home games since the 2010-11 Los Angeles Kings.
