ANAHEIM, Calif. - Ryan Getzlaf scored the tying goal in the third period and set up Corey Perry's second of the game at 4:14 of overtime as the Anaheim Ducks beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 on Sunday night for their sixth straight victory and 10th in 11 games.

The Ducks (13-2-1) have the NHL's second-best record.

Teemu Selanne scored his 668th career goal, tying Luc Robitaille for 11th place on the NHL list. It also was his 250th power-play goal, breaking a tie with Phil Esposito for third place.

Defenceman Francois Beauchemin had a career-high four assists.

Anaheim improved to 8-2-1 after allowing the first goal, and eight of the Ducks' wins this season have been one-goal victories.

John Mitchell, Cody McLeod and P.A. Parenteau scored for Colorado, and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 20 of his 35 saves in the second period against his former team.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.

— Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper on his team's 3-2 loss to the Canadiens in Game 3 on Sunday
