Ducks beat Senators in shootout

Bobby Ryan scored in the shootout to give the Anaheim Ducks a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.

Ryan shot past Brian Elliott on Anaheim's second attempt after Mike Fisher hit the right post on Ottawa's second shot.

Jonas Hiller had already stopped Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson's backhand when he denied Erik Karlsson on Ottawa's final attempt to seal the win. He stopped 39 shots for the Ducks, who won their second in a row to begin a four-game road trip.

Corey Perry gave Anaheim a 1-0 lead with a highlight-reel tally 14:30 in for his 24th goal and 50th point, both team highs.

Fisher drew Ottawa even late in the second. Elliott made 26 saves, including a huge stop on Matt Beleskey's breakaway midway through the third.

The Ducks, who have won eight of 10, came close to winning it late in the third when Teemu Selanne put a drive from the right side off the post after Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle used his timeout with 57.3 seconds left in regulation.

Ottawa outshot Anaheim 40-27 overall, including 15-10 in the first and 13-3 in the second.

The Senators had a number of scoring chances in the opening period but it was the Ducks who came out of the first with a 1-0 lead. Hiller made a glove save to deny Bobby Butler on a breakaway and veteran Ottawa defenseman Sergei Gonchar hit a post.

Perry was falling to the ice when he put a backhand of Bobby Ryan's point shot over Elliott, who was lying on the ice with his pads stacked, leaving the top half of the net wide open for the Ducks' all-star forward.

Fisher scored late in the second to tie it at 1. Senators left wing Milan Michalek battled to maintain possession while he was on his back in the slot. The puck came free and Hiller stuck out his left pad to stop Fisher's initial shot, but the Ottawa center backhanded the rebound in off the left post for his 13th goal at 18:19.
