In the opener of a seven-game road trek, the Ducks were outlasted by Chicago in a 3-2 shootout loss at United Center.

Teemu Selanne had a goal and an assist for Anaheim in Randy Carlyle's 500th game as the club's head coach. Ryan Getzlaf also lit the lamp, his third tally in the last two games.

After he surrendered five goals and being relieved in net on Sunday against Phoenix, Jonas Hiller returned to the fine form he displayed to begin the season. The Ducks goaltender had 33 saves on the night, several coming in spectacular fashion down the stretch.

He was only able to deny one of three Blackhawks in the shootout however, as Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane each converted their attempts to lift Chicago to victory. Selanne was the lone Duck to connect, while Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf were denied by opposing netminder Corey Crawford.

In addition to scoring the winner in the shootout, Kane assisted on both goals in regulation. Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp scored for Chicago, which has won three of four and recorded at least one point in seven of its eight games.

The Ducks led 2-1 before Sharp's blistering slap shot from the high slot tied it at 5:57 in the third. Sharp sent a pass from Kane into the left side of the net from about 35 feet away.

Hossa sent a faceoff off the right post as the horn sounded in overtime, sending the chippy game to the tiebreaker.

Anaheim went in front just 58 seconds into the second period, beating Chicago's stingy penalty-killing unit. Perry skated up the left side of the ice and sent a perfect pass across the middle to Getzlaf, who beat Crawford with a shot into the upper right corner. Perry's pass slid just past defenseman Sean O'Donnell and right to Getzlaf's stick, setting up his third goal.

It was the first power-play goal against the Blackhawks since the third period of their 5-2 victory over Dallas in their second game of the season on October 8. Chicago had killed the last 11 power plays it faced.

The Blackhawks responded with their own highlight-reel score at 10:16 in the second. Kane made a strong spin move to wrap around defenseman Toni Lydman, then sent the puck across the ice to Hossa, who just had to guide it into the open left side of the net. It was Hossa's fifth goal of the season and his team-high 15th in 24 career games against the Ducks.

The glow from Kane's fifth assist of the season didn't last very long.

Kane had the puck near the Blackhawks' net with about 4 minutes left in the second when he tried to pass to Duncan Keith and Selanne picked it off. The 41-year-old Selanne, still a dangerous scorer, then skated in on Crawford and converted a stick-side backhander to give Anaheim a 2-1 lead.

NOTES: Ducks F Devante Smith-Pelly was sidelined with the flu. ... Chicago killed 16 of its opponents' 17 power-play opportunities in the first seven games of the season. ... Anaheim's seven-game trip is tied for the third-longest in club history.
