ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Andrew Cogliano ended Minnesota's season-long shutout streak with a short-handed goal early in the third period, and Corey Perry got the tiebreaking goal with 8:25 left in the Anaheim Ducks' 2-1 victory over the Wild on Friday night.

Frederik Andersen made 27 saves in the fourth consecutive victory for the Ducks, who made a dynamic rally to win their home opener.

Cogliano's goal was the first allowed all season by the Wild and goalie Darcy Kuemper, who set the franchise record for consecutive scoreless minutes.

Perry then put the Ducks ahead when Jason Zucker's pass went off rookie Matt Dumba's skate and straight to the former league goal-scoring champion, who eventually scored his fifth goal in five games on a rebound.

Zucker scored and Kuemper stopped 24 shots for the Wild.
