ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Jakob Silfverberg had a goal and an assist and the NHL's lowest-scoring team blasted the highest-scoring team for four goals in the first period of the Anaheim Ducks' 4-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Friday night.

After Silfverberg and Sami Vatanen scored 31 seconds apart in the opening minutes, Hampus Lindholm and Corey Perry scored 33 seconds apart later in the first period while the Ducks shredded the Stars' defense and goalie Kari Lehtonen in a 12:32 stretch.

Frederik Andersen made 22 saves for the Ducks, who have won seven of 10.

Mattias Janmark scored a short-handed goal and captain Jamie Benn had a power-play goal for the Stars. Dallas has lost six straight road games for the first time in five years.
