ANAHEIM, Calif. -Teemu Selanne and Joffrey Lupul broke open a scoreless game in the third period, lifting the Anaheim Mighty Ducks to a 3-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks .

Selanne took a cross-zone pass from Andy McDonald and put his own rebound past goalie Nikolai Khabibulin to give Anaheim a 1-0 lead with 10:31 to play.

Lupul beat Khabibulin on a partial breakaway seven minutes later, and Rob Niedermayer scored into an empty net to secure the Mighty Ducks’ third win in four games. Selanne has scored in all four.

The Blackhawks fell to 0-6-2 in their last eight games at the Pond and are 1-11-2 in Anaheim since November 1997.

Mark Bell, who had the lone goal for the Blackhawks, scored for the sixth straight game – the NHL’s longest streak this season.

Chicago finished its five-game road trip 2-3, winning in Calgary and Edmonton before losing Thursday in Vancouver and Saturday in Los Angeles.

Anaheim’s Ilya Bryzgalov made 34 saves for his fourth win this season.

The Ducks had four power plays in the second period and mounted considerable pressure in front of Khabibulin but couldn’t score.

Notes: Anaheim LW Todd Fedoruk served the final game of a three-game suspension imposed for a hit on Petr Nedved in Phoenix last Tuesday. … Ducks D Sandis Ozolinsh left the game with a left knee injury. … The three shots in the first period matched Anaheim’s low for the season and the fewest yielded on the road by Chicago.
