WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Zach Bogosian netted a goal and added two assists for Winnipeg Saturday and the Jets downed Anaheim 5-3, handing the Ducks a 12th straight road loss.

Alex Burmistrov and Andrew Ladd scored consecutive goals in the second period, lifting the Jets into a 4-2 lead.

Blake Wheeler and Kyle Wellwood also found the net for Winnipeg.

Chris Mason turned aside 33-of-36 shots on a night when Jets fans honored Anaheim's Teeme Selanne, one of the NHL's all-time leading scorers with 647 career goals.

The likely future hall-of-famer began his career as a draft choice of the former Jets -- now the Phoenix Coyotes -- and scored rookie record of 76 goals in the 1992-93 season.

Saturday's contest marked Selanne's first game in Winnipeg since 1996.

He logged two assists on goals by Niklas Hagman and Corey Perry, who scored twice in the Ducks' loss.

Dan Ellis made 26 stops for Anaheim.
