COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Teemu Selanne scored a power-play goal with 3:55 left, helping the Anaheim Ducks beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 on Monday night.

The game was played before 10,494, the smallest NHL crowd ever at Nationwide Arena.

Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf each had a goal and an assist for the Ducks, who for only the second time in franchise history swept a road trip of four games or longer. After an 0-4-0 start, the Ducks have won five of their last six.

Jean-Sebastian Giguere had 30 saves for Anaheim.

Jiri Novotny and Derrick Brassard gave the Blue Jackets a 2-1 lead through two periods.

The Ducks pulled even at the 9:19 mark of the third when Steve Montador's shot from the right point was redirected by Perry for his second of the year.

Columbus goaltender Fredrik Norrena stopped Francois Beauchemin's shot, but the rebound went right to Selanne on the left side and he beat Norrena inside the near post for the game-winner.

Getzlaf needed just 1:17 to get the Ducks on the board. Columbus forward Michael Peca tried to push the puck along the back wall but Corey Perry deflected it, with Chris Kunitz putting up a shot that Norrena stopped. The rebound, however, went to Getzlaf who had an empty net in front of him for his third of the year.

Shut out in his first six games, Getzlaf now has goals in the last three. Kunitz and Perry both extended their points streaks to four games with assists.

Anaheim was controlling the action when it went on the power play shortly after Getzlaf's goal.

Late in the kill, Columbus tied it when Andrew Murray took a long pass behind the defense and got off two shots that Giguere swept aside. Murray then continued behind the net, took the puck from Beauchemin and slid a centering pass to Novotny in the slot for a one-timer with two seconds left in the Anaheim power play.

Just 37 seconds into the second period, the Blue Jackets had a 2-1 lead.

From the back boards, Jason Chimera flipped a backhanded centering pass to Brassard who buried the one-timer from the slot for his third goal of the season. Brassard, a rookie, has points in seven of his nine games.

Notes: The Blue Jackets put goalie Pascal Leclaire on injured reserve with a sprained ankle just before the game. He's expected to be out for a week. ... Selanne has points in his last three games. ... RW Jared Boll had missed the last five games with a possible concussion before rejoining Columbus before the game.
