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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
