Hampus Lindholm and Jacob Silfverberg scored 1:52 apart to break open a tie game, Corey Perry got his team-high 19th goal and the Anaheim Ducks defeated the New Jersey Devils 5-1 on Friday night.

Patrick Maroon and Silfverberg scored in the final 3:33, helping the Ducks remain tied with Nashville atop the overall NHL standings following the Predators' 4-3 win over Washington.

Ilya Bryzgalov faced only 15 shots while earning his first victory in three starts since returning to the Ducks on Dec. 9 as a free agent. He was the backup to Jean-Sebastien Giguere during Anaheim's 2007 Stanley Cup championship season.

Playing their second straight game without Jaromir Jagr and Tuomo Ruutu, both of whom were back home with the flu, the Devils got their only goal from Martin Havlat.
