Wings again get road win over Ducks

ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — Jimmy Howard made 33 saves, Dan Cleary and Drew Miller scored first-period goals, and the Red Wings beat the Anaheim Ducks on the road for the second time in three days with a 2-1 victory on Sunday night.

The Ducks, who trail idle Chicago by three points for the NHL's best record, have dropped consecutive games in regulation for the first time this season following a 22-3-4 start that was the best in franchise history. They also had back-to-back shootout losses on the road against the Phoenix Coyotes earlier this month.

Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf scored on a power play with 46 seconds left in the second period, ending his 13-game goal drought against Detroit. Jonas Hiller stopped 21 shots after going 8-0-2 with a 1.86 goals-against average and .933 save percentage in his previous 10 starts.

Cleary opened the scoring on a power play at 4:14, tipping Jakub Kindl's snap shot from the top of the right circle past Hiller, while Francois Beauchemin was off for tripping Valtteri Filppula. 

Miller, who began his career with the Ducks, scored at 8:46 when he beat Teemu Selanne to a loose puck.
