Cam Ward made nine saves after coming on with 10:08 left in the second period to replace starting netminder Anton Khudobin. Khudobin suffered a lower-body injury when he skated out to play the puck. Coach Kirk Muller had no update on Khudobin’s status other than he’d undergo an MRI on Monday. Ward allowed three of Phoenix’s goals.

Ducks 4, Senators 1 — Corey Perry scored two goals, Jonas Hiller made 30 saves, and host Anaheim won its fourth straight by dominating Bobby Ryan and Ottawa.

Ryan scored his 150th career goal amid boos from the sellout crowd in his first game back in Anaheim since the Ducks traded the high-scoring forward last summer.

Anaheim had 11 shots and two goals in the first five minutes alone. Ottawa allowed 24 shots in the first period.


Jets 3, Devils 0 — Al Montoya made 24 saves for his fourth NHL shutout and Evander Kane scored twice in Winnipeg’s victory over visiting New Jersey.

Kings 3, Panthers 0 — Ben Scrivens made 20 saves to record his third career shutout and Los Angeles won its third straight, beating host Florida.

Jordan Nolan added a goal and an assist, and Justin Williams and Daniel Carcillo also scored for the Kings.

In Saturday’s late games: Rookie Tomas Hertl scored his league-leading seventh goal before leaving with an injury and Brent Burns got the tiebreaker in the third period to lead the host San Jose Sharks to their fifth straight win to open the season, a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators. Hertl had to be helped to the dressing room after taking a hard hit from Clarke MacArthur late in the second period and did not return; Carey Price made 39 saves and Lars Eller got credit for a shorthanded winner as the Montreal Canadiens topped the Canucks, 4-1, in Vancouver.
