Viktor Fasth made two stops in the shootout to remain perfect in six starts and the Anaheim Ducks beat the host Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 on Tuesday in a matchup of the top two teams in the Western Conference.
After Jonathan Toews converted the first shootout attempt for Chicago, Fasth stopped Patrick Kane's backhander and denied Brandon Saad on the right side of the goal to become the first goalie to win his first six NHL starts since Dan Ellis with Dallas and Nashville from Feb. 18, 2004, to Nov. 29, 2007.
Chicago remained the only NHL team without a regulation loss.
"They're obviously a great team," Fasth said of the Blackhawks. "We knew that we had to be on top of our game to win today, and that's what we did."
Chicago led 2-1 before Andrew Cogliano sent a deflected shot into the left side of the net with 2:40 left in the third after his helmet was knocked off.
The Blackhawks were on the power play for almost four minutes in overtime but couldn't get the winning goal.
