ANAHEIM, Calif., Jan. 2 (UPI) -- Jonas Hiller made 39 saves and Corey Perry got the go-ahead goal Sunday in the Anaheim Ducks' 2-1 decision over Chicago.

With the score tied 1-1 less than 2 minutes into the middle frame, Perry got an open chance during a Blackhawks change, snapping a wrist shot past Corey Crawford for the decisive goal.

Andreas Lilja also scored for Anaheim.

Chicago, losers of three straight, got its only goal from Bryan Bickell. Crawford made 16 saves.
