ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Corey Perry had two goals and an assist in the first period, Andrew Cogliano scored a short-handed goal, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 Sunday night for their second straight victory out of the Olympic break.

Frederik Andersen made 49 saves for the NHL-leading Ducks, who jumped to a 5-0 lead midway through the second period and coasted to their third consecutive win overall.

Francois Beauchemin and Jakob Silfverberg also scored as the Ducks won their NHL-best 43rd game and stayed five points ahead of Chicago and St. Louis in the overall league standings.

Alexander Semin, Andrej Sekera and Patrick Dwyer scored in Carolina’s fifth straight loss overall and its fourth in six days since the break.

The Ducks scored early and often in a blowout victory over the struggling Hurricanes. Perry got his 31st and 32nd goals during his sixth multigoal game of the season, while Cogliano set a new career high with the 19th goal of his breakout season.

Andersen was solid while earning his sixth win in his last seven starts, but the Danish goalie could be headed back to the AHL after the game. Viktor Fasth, who has been out since Nov. 18 with muscle inflammation, is due to return to Anaheim as Jonas Hiller’s backup.

Cam Ward stopped 29 shots in just his second start of 2014, and the Hurricanes followed up Saturday’s 3-1 loss at Los Angeles with another disappointing effort. Carolina put up 26 shots and scored twice in the third period, but went scoreless on six power plays to drop into an 0-for-21 slump.

The Hurricanes conclude their five-game road trip out of the break Tuesday in San Jose.

Perry put the Ducks ahead 6:39 in, punching in a loose puck after the Canes’ defense came unglued during a shift by Anaheim’s dominant top line. Beauchemin scored later in the period on a slap shot that deflected off Jiri Tlusty’s stick, and Perry got his second goal 1:48 later with a nasty wrist shot.

Cogliano scored during a horrible Carolina power play early in the second period, beating Ward between the goalie’s legs to set his new career high for goals with 20 games still to play.

Shortly after Carolina got a bench minor for too many men on the ice during a power play, Silfverberg dug the puck off the netting and scored his first goal since Jan. 15.

Carolina avoided the shutout late in the second period when Sekera scored in his second straight game. Dwyer added his first goal since Jan. 9 in the third period.
