    Chris Stewart and Ryan Kesler each scored first-period goals and Frederik Andersen stopped 21 shots as the Anaheim Ducks beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Saturday night.

    Mike Cammalleri scored late in the third period to spoil Andersen's shutout bid. Keith Kinkaid made 16 saves for the Devils, who dropped a second straight game, both at home. The defeat also ended New Jersey's stretch of alternating wins and losses at 11 games.

    The win snapped a two losing streaks by the Ducks, who came into the game with a league-low 55 goals. They had scored only five goals in their previous five games this month.

    New Jersey outshot Anaheim 10-5 in the scoreless second period. The Devils' best chance was a one-timer by Cammalleri from the right circle denied by Andersen's sliding pad save.

    Cammalleri finally dented Andersen with 4:34 remaining, converting a cross-ice, tape-to-tape feed from Lee Stempniak.
