Jakob Silfverberg scored a short-handed goal and another on the power play to lead the Anaheim Ducks to a 6-1 victory over the Nashville Predators on Wednesday night.

Nick Ritchie, Corey Perry, Andrew Cogliano and Ryan Kesler also scored for Anaheim, and John Gibson stopped 28 shots, as the Ducks earned a point in their fourth consecutive game and for the fifth time in their last six outings.

Silfverberg had his ninth career multi-goal game, leading a five-goal burst in second period.

Ritchie put the Ducks ahead 2:57 into the first period with his second goal of the season, putting a backhander between Pekka Rinne's pads.
