ST. PAUL, Minn., Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Teemu Selanne assisted on all three Anaheim goals Thursday and the Ducks halted a three-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over Minnesota.

Selanne set up Corey Perry on the power play in the opening period and then had a shot tipped in by Bobby Ryan in the second.

With the Ducks clinging to a one-goal lead early in the third, Selanne again assisted on Ryan Getzlaf's power-play goal.

Matt Cullen brought the Wild within one with 6:06 remaining, but Jonas Hiller protected the lead and finished with 23 saves to get his first win in 13 days.

Minnesota lost for the fourth time in five games. Niklas Backstrom stopped just 13 shots in the loss.
