ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 21 (UPI) -- Corey Perry scored in the first round of the shootout Wednesday, giving Anaheim a 3-2 victory over Colorado.

Colorado lost its fifth straight, a skid that began with a Feb. 12 loss to Anaheim.

Teemu Selanne and Rob Niedermayer also scored for Anaheim. Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 26 saves for the Ducks, who are 2-1 on their current seven-game homestand.

Giguere stopped Wojtek Wolski, Marek Svatos and Scott Hannan in the shootout after Perry had opened things by getting the puck past Peter Budaj. Giguere has won six of his last seven starts.

Colorado took a 2-1 lead with second-period goals by Jeff Finger and Andrew Brunette, but Niedermayer tied it with a tip-in at 9:23 of the third.
