NEWARK, N.J., Feb. 8 (UPI) -- The first two goals of Ryan Carter's NHL career Friday gave Anaheim a 2-1 victory over New Jersey.

It had been 12 years since Anaheim had last won on New Jersey's home ice.

The Ducks captured their third straight and improved to 3-4 on a nine-game road trip. Jonas Hiller picked up the win with 34 saves.

New Jersey, losers of five of its last seven, got a goal from Jay Pandolfo. Martin Brodeur made 22 saves in his 14th consecutive start.

The Devils missed out on a chance to move past idle Philadelphia and Pittsburgh into first place in the Atlantic Division.

Both of Carter's goals came in the opening period. He beat Brodeur with a slap shot with 9:48 remaining. He tallied again with 2:07 to go in the frame.
