Andrew Cogliano scored late in the second period, Jonathan Bernier made 17 saves and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-1 on Friday night.

Corey Perry and Jakob Silvferberg also scored for Anaheim, which is now tied with San Jose for the lead in the Pacific Division with eight games remaining for both teams. The Sharks lost 6-1 to Dallas, giving the Ducks renewed hope of winning the division title for the fifth season in a row.

Silfverberg scored an empty-net goal with 1:07 to play.

Bernier's outstanding play in relief of John Gibson has been a big reason why the Ducks are in contention for another division banner, improving to 7-0-1 in his last eight games. They've won three straight overall.

Josh Morrissey scored a power-play goal and Michael Hutchinson made 32 saves for the Jets, who did not pick up a point in eight games this season against Anaheim, San Jose and Edmonton, the top three teams in the Pacific Division.
