BUFFALO, N.Y. - Rookie William Karlsson scored the first two goals of his career in leading the Anaheim Ducks to a 5-1 victory over the winless Buffalo Sabres on Monday afternoon.

Ryan Kessler scored on a third-period penalty shot and Corey Perry and Matt Beleskey had a goal each during a one-sided game in which Anaheim outshot the Sabres 44-12.

The Ducks (2-1) were so dominant ? and Sabres so inept ? that Anaheim was outshooting Buffalo 40-10 when Kessler beat goalie Michal Neuvirth with a low shot inside the left post with 7:35 remaining.

Frederik Andersen stopped 11 shots to win his second of the season and career-best matching sixth straight. Andersen, however, was denied a chance to earn his first career shutout when Tyler Ennis converted Matt Moulson's centring pass from behind the net at 6:36 of the third.
