NASHVILLE, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- Corey Perry got the game-winner in a shootout Saturday and the Anaheim Ducks wrapped up a 5-1-0 road trip with a 3-2 victory over Nashville.

After a scoreless overtime, Nick Bonino opened the shootout with a goal off Predators goalie Pekka Rinne, but Craig Smith kept the tiebreaker alive with a tally against Viktor Fasth in the second round.

The next shooter, Perry, put the Ducks back on top with a forehand-to-backhand move, and Gabriel Bourque missed the net on the Predators' final try, securing the best six-game road trip in Anaheim's franchise history.

Matt Beleskey scored and Patrick Maroon added his first NHL goal for the Ducks.

Fasth improved to 4-0 in shootouts and 8-0 on the season, turning aside 32-of-34 shots.

David Legwand and Shea Weber scored for Nashville, which fell to 5-2-1 in February.

Rinne ended with 20 saves.
