ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Daniel Winnik ended an 18-game goal drought on the first shot of the game and Viktor Fasth posted his second career shutout for the Anaheim Ducks with 29 saves in a 4-0 victory over the Calgary Flames on Friday night. Bobby Ryan and defenseman Sheldon Souray scored less than 2 1-2 minutes apart in the second period for Anaheim, who have won 16 straight at home against Calgary. Ryan, shaken up during the opening period when he slid into the end boards unchecked behind the Calgary net, made it 2-0 . Corey Perry set up the play from behind the net after getting the puck from Ryan Getzlaf, who notched his 500th NHL point on the same day he signed an eight-year, 66 million contract extension. The Ducks, leading the league in power-play conversion percentage, matched up against a Calgary squad averaging the second-fewest penalty minutes behind Nashville. The Flames went the entire game without a penalty, the first time this season they weren't short-handed. But Getzlaf scored his 10th goal late in the third period on a delayed penalty that would have been called against Mark Giordano for upending Perry. The Ducks also have won 10 straight at home, one shy of the franchise record set in 2009-10. Calgary hasn't won in Anaheim since Jan. 19, 2004, and has only one regulation victory over the Ducks on the road in 25 tries since winning the Stanley Cup in 1999. Anaheim improved the NHL's second-best record to 17-3-3. The Ducks climbed within eight points of the Chicago Blackhawks, whose league-record streak of 24 games without a regulation loss at the start of a season ended Friday with a 6-2 loss at Colorado. Miikka Kiprusoff, who returned to the nets on Wednesday night after missing 13 games with a sprained knee and beat San Jose 4-1 for his 300th victory in a Flames uniform, stopped 20 shots. Winnik was right in front of the crease when he one-timed a pass from behind the net from Andrew Cogliano 75 seconds after the opening faceoff. It was his first goal since Jan. 26. The Flames had scored in the opening period in each of their previous seven games, and outshot the Ducks 10-4 through the first 20 minutes. But Fasth (10-1-1) stopped Michal Cammalleri's point-blank wrist shot from 20 feet, and Roman Cervenka redirected Jiri Hudler's pass directly into the goalie's midsection from the slot. It was more of the same in the second period for the frustrated Flames. Cammalleri was robbed when Fasth did the splits and made a spread-eagle save with his left foot. Curtis Glencross was denied by Fasth on a tricky backhander from in close. Souray scored Anaheim's third goal on a long slap shot that beat Kiprusoff through a screen. NOTES: Getzlaf is the second player to score his first 500 NHL points in a Ducks uniform, joining Paul Kariya (669). ... The Ducks haven't lost at Honda Center since their home opener, when Vancouver beat them 5-0. They can equal their longest home winning streak if they beat St. Louis on Sunday. The Blues have lost five straight in Anaheim and nine of their last 10 here. ... Anaheim's Teemu Selanne is two points behind Bryan Trottier's total of 1,425 for 15th place on the career list. Calgary captain Jarome Iginla's next goal will tie Trottier for 32nd place all-time at 524. ... The Flames will remain in Southern California for back-to-back games against the Stanley Cup champion Kings on Saturday and Monday nights.
