Ducks rout Senators with club-best 56 shots

AP, ANAHEIM, California

Corey Perry scored two goals and Jonas Hiller made 30 saves, as the Anaheim Ducks beat Bobby Ryan and the Ottawa Senators 4-1 on Sunday for their fourth straight victory.

Captain Ryan Getzlaf and Nick Bonino also scored for the Ducks, who were mighty again on a throwback night celebrating the 20th anniversary of the franchise’s 1993 debut.

The Ducks wore their original eggplant-and-teal jerseys as they racked up a franchise-record 56 shots against the Senators, who lost their fourth straight.

Ryan scored his 150th career goal amid boos from the sellout crowd in his first game back in Anaheim since the Ducks traded the high-scoring forward last summer.

Anaheim surpassed their previous franchise record of 54 shots, set in March 2009 against Edmonton, while Ottawa also set a club record for shots allowed, surpassing the 51 shots yielded twice before.

Also on Sunday, Los Angeles goalie Ben Scrivens made 20 saves for his third career shutout to lead the Kings past the Florida Panthers 3-0 for their third consecutive win.

Jordan Nolan had a goal and an assist, while Justin Williams and Daniel Carcillo also scored for the Kings.

Jacob Markstrom had 26 saves for Florida, who have lost four of their past five games.

In Winnipeg, Manitoba, Al Montoya made 24 saves for his fourth NHL shutout and Evander Kane scored twice, as the Jets ended a three-game losing streak with a 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Kane opened the scoring early in the second period, carrying the puck the length of the ice and banking it off Devils defenseman Andy Greene’s leg and past goalie Cory Schneider after New Jersey failed to score on a two-man advantage.

In the day’s other game, Rob Klinkhammer scored his second goal of the game 22 seconds into the third period to help the Phoenix Coyotes down the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3.

Shane Doan, Mikkel Boedker and Lauri Korpikoski had Phoenix’s other goals.

Mike Smith made 31 saves for the Coyotes, who closed a five-game road trip by winning the final three.

Eric Staal, Riley Nash and Jeff Skinner scored for the Hurricanes.
