WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Corey Perry took advantage of a defensive mistake to score a third-period winner in the Anaheim Ducks' 3-2 victory over the Jets on Sunday night, when Teemu Selanne got a standing ovation in what could be his last visit to Winnipeg.
Selanne, who is retiring after this season, began his NHL career with Winnipeg in 1992-93 by setting rookie records of 76 goals and 132 points. The Ducks won't return to Winnipeg unless the teams meet in the playoffs.
Viktor Fasth made 15 saves for Anaheim, which also got goals from Mathieu Perreault and Andrew Cogliano.
Andrew Ladd had a pair of goals for Winnipeg, Blake Wheeler assisted on both in his 375th NHL game and Ondrej Pavelec stopped 31 shots.
CANUCKS 5, FLAMES 4
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Mike Santorelli scored his second goal at 3:17 in overtime to lead Vancouver over Calgary.
The Canucks scored three straight goals in the third period to lead 4-3, but with Flames goaltender Joey MacDonald on the bench for a sixth attacker David Jones sent the game into extra time with 19 seconds remaining in regulation.
Dale Weise, Jannik Hansen and Santorelli scored in the third after the Canucks fell behind 3-1 early in the period. Canucks backup goaltender Eddie Lack made 32 saves in his first regular-season NHL game and David Booth scored for Vancouver in the first period.
Mikael Backlund, Sean Monahan and Calgary captain Mark Giordano also scored for the Flames and Joey MacDonald stopped 23 shots.
