EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -Jonas Hiller matched the Anaheim record with 51 saves, and turned aside three shootout tries in the Ducks' 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night.
Corey Perry scored in regulation and added the shootout winner in the Ducks' first game on a five-game trip. Rob Niedermayer added a short-handed goal to help the Ducks improve to 18-12-3 with their fourth victory in six games.
Hiller, in goal with Jean-Sebastien Giguere on leave in Montreal following his father's death, tied the franchise single game (regular season) saves record set by Mikhail Shtalenkov against Ottawa in March 1998 and matched by Giguere against Detroit in March 2004.
Kyle Brodziak and Eric Cole scored for Edmonton. The Oilers have lost three straight to fall to 14-14-3. They're 4-5-3 at home.
Anaheim star Teemu Selanne cut his left thigh in the first period when he took a hit along the boards from Denis Grebeshkov. Selanne had to be helped off the ice and did not return to the game.
Perry gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead midway through the second period, tipping a shot past Dwayne Roloson on a power play.
Edmonton outshot Anaheim 21-4 in the third period, tying it on Brodziak's goal at 6:32 and Cole's power-play strike at 13:57.
Notes: Selanne played in his 1,100 NHL game. ... Anaheim recalled goalie David LeNeveu from Iowa of the American Hockey League to backup Hiller.
