ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Jonas Hiller stopped 25-of-27 shots and Corey Perry netted the eventual game-winning goal Monday in the Anaheim Ducks' 3-2 victory over Columbus.

Hiller, making his first start in nearly a month after battling a lower-body injury, was especially sharp in the first period went he turned away 11 shots as the Pacific Division-leading Ducks racked up their fifth straight win.

Perry's power-play tally 8:44 into the third period gave Anaheim a 3-1 lead while Ryan Getzlaf contributed a goal and an assist in the win.

Peter Holland also found the net for the Ducks.

Vinny Prospal and Derick Brassard scored as the Blue Jackets dropped their fifth in six games.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 26 saves for Columbus.
