BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Emerson Etem and Corey Perry both scored two goals to lift the Anaheim Ducks over the reeling Buffalo Sabres 6-3 on Saturday night.
Ryan Getzlaf scored and added a pair of assists for the Ducks (11-3-1), who recorded five straight goals after Buffalo struck first. Sami Vatanen also scored for Anaheim.
Cody Hodgson, Tyler Myers and Henrik Tallinder scored for Buffalo, but the Sabres (2-13-1) continued their worst start in franchise history. The Sabres have lost their first nine home games, their longest stretch to open a season.
With the game tied 1-1 late in the second period, Anaheim scored two goals in 34 seconds. Vatanen took advantage of Matt Moulson's slow backcheck and fired a shot past goalie Jhonas Enroth from just inside the blue line. Moments later, Etem lifted a rebound opportunity past Enroth for his first of the night.
Thirteen players recorded points for Anaheim, which won its first game in Buffalo since 2009.
