Perry's goal late in the 3rd sends Ducks to 4-3 victory over Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Corey Perry scored with 2:25 remaining in the third period on Sunday night and the Anaheim Ducks edged Columbus 4-3, ending Blue Jackets' three-game winning streak.

Perry wristed a shot over a sprawled Sergei Bobrovsky for his sixth of the season. A pass by Columbus' Dalton Prout behind the net caromed hard off the back boards to Perry in the slot.

The Ducks lost Saku Koivu late in the second period on a hit that resulted in the ejection of Columbus' Brandon Dubinsky.

Artem Anisimov scored twice, rebounding from a first-period hit by Francois Beauchemin, and Blake Comeau scored his first of the season for Columbus, which finished a four-game homestand at 3-1.

Bobrovsky, last season's Vezina Trophy winner, stopped 28 of 32 shots.

Ryan Getzlaf, Peter Holland and Emerson Etem scored for Anaheim.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
