ANAHEIM, Calif. – Kevin Bieksa and Ryan Kesler each scored a power-play goal, and the Anaheim Ducks earned at least one point for the sixth consecutive game with a 4-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday night.
Rickard Rakell and Corey Perry also scored, and John Gibson made 19 saves for the Ducks as they opened an eight-game homestand vital to their playoff hopes in the jumbled Pacific Division.
Tyler Myers scored for the Jets, and Michael Hutchinson stopped 31 shots.
After sweeping the Jets in the first round of last year's Stanley Cup playoffs, the Ducks won the first meeting this season.
Rakell scored 5:51 into the first period, capping a strong opening flurry of puck possession. His shot from between the circles seemed innocuous, but Hutchinson never reacted until it was too late.
