ANAHEIM, Calif., March 6 (UPI) -- Corey Perry scored two goals, including the 200th of his career, in the Anaheim Ducks' 4-2 win over the visiting Edmonton Oilers Monday.

Perry's second goal of the night came in the third period and proved to be the winning score for the Ducks, who had lost three of four coming into the contest.

Jason Blake and Bobby Ryan also scored for Anaheim. Jonas Hiller made 34 saves and anointed the first star of the game.

Teemu Selanne assisted on Ryan's goal early in the third period, giving him 1,398 career points and moving him into a tie for 19th all-time with Jari Kurri.

Shawn Horcroff and Jordan Eberle scored for Edmonton. Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 26-of-29 shots, but was dinged for three goals in the third period.

Perry tallied the decisive goal at 16:40 of the third period when Niklas Hagman pounced on a loose puck in the Oilers zone and flipped it into the crease where Perry fired a wrist shot past Khabibulin. Perry added an empty-net goal in the closing seconds.
