Back to Scores

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Ryan Miller made 29 saves to earn his 40th career shutout, and Adam Henrique registered two goals as the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Ottawa Senators 3-0 on Wednesday night.

Anaheim (12-11-6) broke a three-game losing streak (0-1-2) by taking the opener of a three-game homestand. The Ducks have defeated Ottawa in seven of the past nine meetings played at Honda Center.

Ottawa (9-11-6) lost its second straight game to start a season-high, seven-game road trip and has dropped nine of its last 10 contests (1-8-1). Craig Anderson made 19 saves.

Henrique scored his fifth goal of the season and first in an Anaheim uniform to give the Ducks a 1-0 lead at 3:47 of the second period. Henrique one-timed a feed from Rickard Rakell past Anderson to extend his point streak as a Duck to four games.

Corey Perry earned the secondary assist.

Anaheim extended its lead to 2-0 on Ondrej Kase's sixth goal of the season at 11:10 of the second period. Kase was left unguarded in the right corner of the Ottawa defensive zone and skated toward the net, deking Cody Ceci out of position to covert a backhand shot.

Nick Ritchie and Josh Manson earned assists.

Henrique added an empty-net goal for his sixth of the season at 18:25 of the third period to close out the scoring. Antoine Vermette and Cam Fowler registered assists.

NOTES: Ottawa scratched D Fredrik Claesson. ... The Senators continue their road trip in Los Angeles on Thursday, facing the red-hot Los Angeles Kings. ... Anaheim did not dress D Korbinian Holzer, RW Jakob Silfverberg and C Joseph Blandisi. Silfverberg missed his fourth consecutive game with an upper-body injury. ... The Ducks return to action Friday, welcoming the Minnesota Wild for the middle match of their homestand. ... Anaheim placed D Hampus Lindholm on injured reserve. He will miss the Friday game against the Wild at a minimum. The Ducks recalled D Jaycob Megna on Tuesday to fill the roster spot.
