Let the Chicago Blackhawks grab all the headlines for their amazing start, the Ducks will say as they continue to blaze their own trail through the Western Conference.
Matt Beleskey's goal in the second period proved decisive, and Jonas Hiller made 31 saves in a sharp performance to lead the Ducks to a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Friday night at Honda Center.

Before an announced 15,264, the Ducks (15-3-1) won their eighth in a row at home and have captured 12 of their last 14 overall to move past the defining 2006-07 squad for the best start in franchise history.
The record-breaking Blackhawks won again Friday to improve to 18-0-3, but the Ducks have quietly racked up victory after victory.
"It's good," Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf said. "We felt pretty good coming into the season. Obviously nobody expects to start the way we did. Guys are doing the right things.
"Good teams find ways to win even when they shouldn't."
The Ducks' 31 points trail only Chicago and are 15 ahead of last year's pace. Getzlaf and Teemu Selanne got the Ducks off to another hot start with goals in the first period against Wild backup Darcy Kuemper.
Beleskey made it 3-0 when he poked in a puck that Kuemper lost sight of alongside his left pad after Dan Winnik's pass deflected off Minnesota defenseman Ryan Suter in front.
