ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Kyle Palmieri scored three consecutive goals over the opening two periods Wednesday to bring Anaheim a 5-1 victory over Nashville.

The Ducks boosted the NHL's largest point total to 29, bouncing back from a loss to Los Angeles on Monday that ended their six-game winning streak.

Anaheim already had a 1-0 lead when Palmieri scored his first goal of the game and the Ducks' second in a span of 61 seconds. He tallied again with 3:03 to go in the opening period and then produced a power-play goal 1:07 into the middle stanza.

The other Anaheim goals came from Nick Bonino and Saku Koivu.

Nashville managed only a second-period goal by Craig Smith against Viktor Fasth, who made 20 saves while improving to 9-1 for the season.

Pekka Rinnie gave up five goals on 16 shots before being removed in favor of Chris Mason.
