PHILADELPHIA — The Anaheim Ducks finally found out what happens when they stay out of the penalty box. At least for one period.

Ryan Garbutt’s goal 11:34 into the third period off a great feed by Korbinian Holzer broke a tie and gave the Ducks their first win of the season, 3-2 over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.

Anaheim (1-3-1) wrapped up a five-game, season-opening road trip. Philadelphia (1-2-1) lost its third game in a row.

Garbutt was left untouched on the side of the net as Holzer made a nifty move behind Flyers goalie Steve Mason.

“That was a great pass from Holzer,” Garbutt said. “One of the best plays I’ve seen from a D man from behind the net. It was fun to be on the other end of it.”

Anaheim goalie John Gibson then finished off a 20-save performance to preserve the win.

The Ducks, who took seven minor penalties in a loss Tuesday in New Jersey, entered the third period Thursday with 16 penalty minutes. However, their skill and discipline finally took over in the third, when they proved to be the better team at even strength. They didn’t take a penalty in the final period.

The Flyers had just two shots on goal in the final 10 minutes, one of which was a dribbler that got to Gibson as the final horn sounded. The other also came within the final minute of play.

In seven power play chances, the Flyers had just five shots. Anaheim outshot Philadelphia, 26-22.

“The defensive side of hockey is pretty much just playing structure and outworking the opposition,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “Tonight we were fortunate enough that our penalty killers rose to the occasion. We taxed them far too many times, we’re going to admit that. But we’re not going to critique a win.

“When you’re on the road, you gotta find points. You gotta find ways to win. And it’s about time we won a hockey game, that’s for sure.”

Anaheim quieted the home crowd and controlled the first period at even strength. The Ducks took a 1-0 lead 11:24 into the first when Sami Vatanen’s stretch pass sent Jared Boll into the Philadelphia zone. Boll found a trailing Chris Wagner, who beat Mason (23 saves) with a wrist shot to open the scoring.

The Ducks, who have been struggling with discipline, took two minor penalties in the opening period. And then a parade of infractions in the second — six total in the 20-minute frame — had Anaheim looking like a team primed to be beaten.

But Gibson was beaten just once while playing a man down. Wayne Simmonds scored his third goal of the year less than five minutes into the second period, finishing a tic-tac-toe passing play at the side of the net.

Anaheim then took four consecutive penalties and killed them all.

During a brief stretch of even strength play, Matt Read’s fourth goal of the year, which came after a brilliant, one-handed tip pass from Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, put the Flyers ahead 2-1 midway through the second.

But after taking the team’s fifth penalty of the period, alternate captain Corey Perry — 13 seconds after leaving the box — beat Mason with a slap shot from the slot to even the game at 2 with just over three minutes to play in the second period.

“It would be nice to get an insurance goal there but it didn’t happen and we’ve got to play better the rest of the game,” Read said.

“Those are the types of goals we can’t give up,” Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said.

The Ducks, of course, were happy to pounce on a chance to knot the score.

“It’s always good when you kill a penalty to get a goal right after the penalty,” Perry said. “That’s a huge momentum swing for us. The morale on the bench just went up.”

And the Ducks carried that morale into the third period.
