Anaheim, Calif. • Rookie goalie Frederik Andersen won his sixth straight game to start his NHL career, making 35 saves in place of an ailing Jonas Hiller, and the league-leading Anaheim Ducks extended their winning streak to five with a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night.

Corey Perry had a goal and an assist, Nick Bonino got the go-ahead goal in the final minute of the second period and Andrew Cogliano added an empty-netter, helping Anaheim improve the NHL's best record to 15-3-1 and the best home start in franchise history to 8-0.

The Ducks are the league's only undefeated team on home ice, and the first to win their first eight home games since the 2010-11 Los Angeles Kings. Anaheim's 31 points through its first 19 games eclipsed the previous club mark of 30 set in 2006-07, when the team won its only Stanley Cup title.

Tom Sestito scored his first goal of the season for the Canucks.

Avalanche 4, Capitals 1 • In Denver, Semyon Varlamov stopped 33 shots and Nick Holden scored his first NHL goal to break a second-period tie, lifting Colorado over Washington.

Patrick Bordeleau, P.A. Parenteau and Gabriel Landeskog also added goals for the Avalanche, who are off to a franchise-best 14-2 start under new coach Patrick Roy.

Blackhawks 5, Oilers 4 • In Chicago, Marcus Kruger scored the tiebreaking goal with 8:16 left in the third period, Duncan Keith added a power-play goal 1:55 later and Chicago beat Edmonton for its third straight victory.

Kruger was alone at the edge of the crease when he took a pass from Ben Smith off the boards, turned and wrapped the puck past Devan Dubnyk to put Chicago ahead 4-3.
