With the score tied at 1 and Dallas captain Brenden Morrow in the penalty box for interference, Bertuzzi crashed the net and his point-blank swing at the puck got through the pads of Dallas goaltender Marty Turco for Bertuzzi's 14th goal of the season.
Defending Stanley Cup champion Anaheim strengthened its grip on second place in the Pacific Division behind San Jose, moving three points ahead of third-place Dallas.
Morrow scored a short-handed goal for the slumping Stars, who lost their third in a row and are 1-6 in their past seven games.
Scott Niedermayer added a power-play goal for the Ducks, 15-3-1 in their past 19 games.
Anaheim got off to a slow start, failing to register a shot in the game's first 11:35.
Morrow's breakaway was the only score of the first period.
Turco sent the puck along the boards in a clearing attempt during a Ducks' power play, and when Anaheim defenseman Mathieu Schneider fell while trying to glove the puck at the right point, Morrow took possession with nobody back for the Ducks. Morrow skated in alone and beat Giguere from the slot for Morrow's 28th of the season at 12:34.
The Ducks tied it at 1 at 4:08 of the second period, five seconds into a power play, when Niedermayer's shot from the right circle went through Turco's pads for Niedermayer's seventh goal of the season.
