Gabriel Landeskog, Matt Duchene and Jamie McGinn all scored against Jonas Hiller, driving him from the contest after he had allowed four goals on 16 shots.

Teemu Selanne produced Anaheim's only goal on a tip-in with 8:44 to go in the second period.

The Ducks, who had won their previous two games, remained five points behind Chicago for the best record in the West.
