ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Dan Ellis made 26 saves against his former team in his 14th career shutout, and Trevor Daley scored in the Dallas Stars' 2-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night.
Jonas Hiller stopped 25 shots for the NHL-leading Ducks, who were shut out for the first time all season. Anaheim has lost three of five at Honda Center after opening the season 20-0-2 at home.
Ellis had sat out the Stars' previous nine games since Jan. 12, but Kari Lehtonen's veteran backup posted Dallas' third shutout victory in its last six games. Ellis played 23 games with Anaheim from February 2011 to 2012.
Captain Jamie Benn added an empty-net goal with 28 seconds left for the Stars, who snapped a five-game road skid.
