Ducks 3, Blue Jackets 1

Dan Sexton, Bobby Ryan and Corey Perry scored goals and Jonas

Hiller stopped 35 shots to power the Anaheim Ducks past the

Columbus Blue Jackets, 3-1 on Saturday night.

It was Hiller’s first win since Nov. 19 and ended a personal

three-game losing skid.

The game was surprisingly dominated by defense, despite

featuring two teams who have given up the most goals in the Western

Conference.

R.J. Umberger had the lone goal for the Blue Jackets, who had

won both earlier meetings with Anaheim this season but have lost 10

of their last 12 games overall.

The Ducks weathered almost a minute with a two-man disadvantage

while holding a one-goal lead early in the third period.

Ryan had an assist to go with his goal, and Ryan Whitney added

two assists.
