Hot goalie propelling Ducks


at Sabres 1 0 3 4
Bruins 1 1 0 2
Viktor Fasth made 26 saves to become the first goalie in seven years to win his first seven career starts and Andrew Cogliano scored two of Anaheim's three goals in the third period as the Ducks beat the Red Wings 5-2 Friday night.

Fasth, 30, is considered a first-year player and not a rookie because he is older than 25.

Cogliano snapped a 2-2 tie 1:02 into the third, and Bobby Ryan connected 48 seconds later. Cogliano capped the outburst with his fourth of the season at 18:11.

Matt Beleskey and Corey Perry each had a goal and an assist for Anaheim, which won its third straight and seventh in eight games.

Joakim Andersson got his first career goal and added an assist, and Tomas Tatar also scored for Detroit, which was without top-six forwards Pavel Datsyuk (upper body, day-to-day) and Johan Franzen (hip flexor) because of injuries. Jimmy Howard stopped 33 shots.

In the third, Cogliano tipped in a pass from Saku Koivu, and Ryan fired in his rebound for his fifth goal. Both goals were the result of neutral-zone turnovers by the Red Wings.

Perry capitalized on a turnover in the Detroit zone by putting in his rebound 7:32 into the second period to tie the score at 2. Red Wings defenseman Ian White fanned on a pass from behind his net, and the puck went to Beleskey, who made a cross-slot pass to Perry.

Tatar's power-play goal gave Detroit a 2-1 lead 6:32 into the middle period. He put in a rebound for his second goal, both in the last two games.

Andersson opened the scoring 3:01 into the second by beating Fasth from the bottom of the right circle. Beleskey tied it 26 seconds later with his second goal. He beat Howard with a snap shot from the slot.

Game highlights: Fourth-line forward Craig Adams scored twice for his first multigoal game since October 2006 and the Penguins beat the host Jets 3-1. "If I had more nights like this, I'd make a better living," said Adams, 35, who was set to make $625,000 in a full 2012-13 season. James Neal scored Pittsburgh's other goal, his 11th of the season, which tied him for the league lead with Buffalo's Thomas Vanek. … Christian Ehrhoff scored the winner with 10:58 remaining and the host Sabres rallied for three goals in the third period to beat the Bruins 4-2. … David Clarkson scored on a deflection at 10:43 of the third period and the host Devils rallied from a two-goal deficit to defeat the Flyers 5-3. New Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur made 25 saves and had an assist.

Around the league: Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford, 7-0-3 and among the league leaders in wins, save percentage and goals-against average entering Friday, didn't play against the Sharks because of a lower-body injury. He is day-to-day, coach Joel Quenneville said. Backup Ray Emery started. Chicago began the day 10-0-3, the only team without a regulation loss. … Canucks All-Star center Ryan Kesler, who had offseason shoulder and wrist surgeries, made his season debut against the Stars.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Jacob Faria allowed his first two big-league home runs and was touched for a career-high three runs Saturday by the Orioles. Other than that, the rookie making his fourth major-league start did okay against the Baltimore bats.
