Coaches make goalie changes when the current netminder isn’t affective or sometimes just to shift the momentum in a game. The Ducks certainly made the strategy work in a 6-3 victory over the visiting Stars tonight at Honda Center.

After Anaheim finished the first period down 3-1 to Dallas coach Bruce Boudreau inserted rookie Frederik Andersen to start the second period the first NHL appearance of the 24-year-old Dane's career. That appeared to spark the Ducks who scored five unanswered goals while Andersen was perfect with 24 saves as Anaheim rolled to its seventh straight victory.

"Everybody took more responsibilities and we started doing the things we need to do to get better" said Teemu Selanne who had Anaheim's first goal tonight. "It was a good character win coming back from two goals. This team never stopped believing we could come back even last year. That’s the one strength we have right now."

Dallas had a rookie of its own in net at the other end of the rink as 21-year-old Jack Campbell (the 11th overall pick in the 2010 draft) got the first start of his career and had 41 saves in the loss.

The Ducks got to Campbell early on Selanne’s third goal in as many games a welcome power play strike for a Ducks team that came into the contest 1 for 27 with the man advantage. It came when Ryan Getzlaf made a pinpoint feed from the corner to Selanne who waited a beat before wristing it inside the right post.

"We needed our power play tonight and we came through" Getzlaf said. "That’s a nice feeling for our group. We’ve been working in practice working in games and they weren’t going in. That was rewarding."

But Dallas came roaring back with three goals in that period from Ryan Garbutt Brenden Dillon and Shawn Horcoff to take a 3-1 advantage into the first break.

Anaheim didn’t take long to get back in it as Corey Perry scored his first of two goals in the period just 54 second into the middle session. Getzlaf set this one up as well controlling the puck near the left wing wall before zinging a pass into the slot to Perry who redirected it home.

Perry got just enough of the puck to notch his second goal almost 12 minutes into the period as Cam Fowler slung a shot from the point that barely touched Perry’s right sleeve before getting behind Campbell.

The Ducks re-took the lead with 1:05 left in the period as Andrew Cogliano fed in front to Emerson Etem who redirected it just under the crossbar for his first goal of the year and first shorthanded marker of his career.

Anaheim had 23 shots on goal in the stanza a franchise record for shots in the second period.
