ANAHEIM, Calif. - Anton Khudobin rebounded from a rough outing with 34 saves, and the Anaheim Ducks got goals from Cam Fowler, Rickard Rakell and Mike Santorelli to beat the Minnesota Wild 4-1 on Sunday night for their first victory of the season.

Khudobin, who was pulled less than 13 minutes into a 4-0 loss the Arizona Coyotes last Wednesday after giving up three goals on eight shots in his Ducks debut, got another chance against the club that drafted him in 2004. The only goal against him was by Nino Niederreiter with 7:05 left in the first period.

Minnesota goalie Devan Dubnyk, who made 21 saves, was pulled by coach Mike Yeo in favour of an extra attacker with 2 1/2 minutes remaining, and Hampus Lindholm capped the scoring with an empty-net goal with 1:09 to play
