Ducks continue dominance of Blackhawks

Oct 29, 2006 - 2:26 AM CHICAGO (Ticker) -- The Anaheim Ducks continued their mastery of the Chicago Blackhawks.

Andy McDonald and Rob Niedermayer scored goals just over two minutes apart in the third period and Ilya Bryzgalov turned aside only 14 shots as the Ducks defeated the Blackhawks for the seventh straight time, 3-0.

Chicago, losers of four straight, has been shut out in its last two games while getting outscored, 8-0.

Anaheim pulled away with two quick goals in the third period. The Ducks took a 2-0 lead with a power-play goal at 2:18 when McDonald scored on Corey Perry's feed to complete a three-way passing play.

Just over two minutes later, Niedermayer banged in a rebound from the crease past Chicago goaltender Brian Boucher to give the Ducks a 3-0 lead.

The Ducks took a 1-0 lead at 11:35 of the first period. Dustin Penner banged in a rebound of defenseman Scott Niedermayer's shot from the point past Boucher for the eventual game-winning goal.

Boucher, filling in for the injured Nikolai Khabibulin, finished with 19 saves, after allowing five goals on 31 shots in a 5-0 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday.

Khabibulin is out with a broken finger and could be sidelined for another two weeks.
