ANANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Bobby Ryan scored twice and Jonas Hiller made 43 saves to help the Anaheim Ducks win their sixth straight game, 3-2 over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night. Captain Ryan Getzlaf scored on a power play early in the third period and assisted on Ryan's second goal. Hiller made 28 saves through the first two periods and was working on his third shutout of the season before Ryan O'Reilly and Milan Hejduk scored late in the third period. Jean-Sebastien Giguere allowed the three goals on 18 shots against his former team. Giguere spent 8 12 seasons with the Ducks and helped them win the Stanley Cup in 2007. Colorado was coming off a 3-1 victory at Los Angeles on Saturday night. The Ducks are 8-0-1 in their past nine games to move within 11 points of the No. 8 spot in the West. The Avalanche outshot Anaheim 15-2 in the first period, but still found themselves down 1-0. The Ducks scored on their first shot, taking advantage of O'Reilly's turnover at the Avalanche blue line. Ryan picked up the puck and beat Giguere with a wrist shot on a short-handed breakaway at 2:49. Getzlaf scored at 20 seconds of the third period with Colorado's Shane O'Brien off for delay of game for sending the puck out of play late in the second. The Ducks won the opening faceoff and Teemu Selanne raced down the right side, wrapped behind the net and fed Getzlaf. A video review confirmed that the puck crossed under the sprawled Giguere. Getzlaf then set up Ryan's goal at 3:56 with a pass from deep in the Anaheim zone. Ryan has 19 goals this season. He extended his points streak to eight games and has 14 points in his last 13 games. O'Reilly scored with 5:09 left, and Hejduk connected on a power play with 3:32 to go to make it close. NOTES: Ducks have won seven of eight in the series. ... Avalanche defenseman Ryan Wilson missed his second straight game because of a groin injury. ... Anaheim was without defenseman Toni Lydman because of an illness. ... The Ducks reassigned right wing Kyle Palmieri to Syracuse of the AHL on Sunday, a day after the former first-round pick was recalled.
