Anaheim's Jonas Hiller and Tampa Bay's Ben Bishop combined to stop all 74 shots they faced before Getzlaf's wrister found the net. The Ducks halted a five-game losing streak that had come after they had won 15 of their first 19 contests.
Tampa Bay completed a four-game road trip and lost all of them.
Hiller made 31 saves for his second shutout of the season and the 18th of his career. Bishop stopped 43 shots before giving up Getzlaf's goal.
