ANAHEIM, Calif. - Sami Vatanen scored in the sixth round of the shootout, and the Anaheim Ducks rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period for a 5-4 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday night.

Rickard Rakell scored the tying goal with 2:03 left for the Ducks, capping the first multipoint game of his NHL career with two goals and two assists.

Rakell and Ryan Kesler scored shootout goals to keep the game alive after Blake Wheeler and Evander Kane scored early for Winnipeg. Mark Scheifele missed in the sixth round before Vatanen beat Ondrej Pavelec to clinch the NHL-leading Ducks' third win in four games.

Vatanen won it for his fellow Finn after a pregame ceremony honouring Teemu Selanne, whose No. 8 jersey was retired by the Ducks.
