Ryan Getzlaf scored in the third round of the shootout and Jonas Hiller made 33 saves to help lead the Anaheim Ducks to a 2-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Thursday.
Andrew Cogliano scored in regulation for Anaheim, which has won five in a row and gone nine games without a regulation defeat (7-0-2).
Despite missing star Corey Perry, who was serving the first of a four-game suspension for his hit on Minnesota's Jason Zucker on Tuesday, Anaheim improved its record to 9-2-3 on the road.
Bobby Ryan also scored in the shootout, while Hiller denied both Dallas shooters he faced.
Ray Whitney, in his second game back after missing 16 due to a broken foot, scored the only goal for the Stars.
Kari Lehtonen, making his sixth straight start, had 29 saves.
