NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Brandon Bochenski and Corey Perry scored goals and the Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks stretched their winning streak to a season-high five games with a 2-1 victory over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.

The Ducks, 7-0-1 in their last eight games, won the season series with the Predators 3-1.

Bochenski's second goal of the season gave Anaheim a 1-0 at 15:12 of the first period when he deflected Mathieu Schneider's slap shot from the blue line through the legs of goalie Chris Mason. Ryan Getzlaf earned an assist, stretching his point streak to 12 games.

Perry extended the Ducks' advantage to two goals with his 25th of the season at 7:26 of the third period.

With a pass from center ice, Getzlaf sent Perry in on a partial breakaway. Perry faked to his backhand and slid the puck by Mason low to the glove side. Todd Bertuzzi also earned earned an assist on the play and both he and Perry brought their point streaks to five games.

Jason Arnott's power-play goal at 15:24 of the third cut the Predators' deficit to 2-1. J.P. Dumont, at the right of the Anaheim net, sent a pass to Arnott at the left faceoff dot. Arnott one-timed the puck, beating goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who had 33 saves in the game, on the short side.

Notes: Anaheim D Chris Pronger left the game in the first period with a bruised left knee and didn't return. He is day-to-day. ... Dumont extended his career-high point streak to 10 games, tying Steve Sullivan for the Nashville franchise record. Dumont has seven goals and eight assists during that span.
