Teemu Selanne made his much-anticipated return to Winnipeg, but he and the Ducks were unable to overcome the Jets in a 5-3 road loss.

Selanne, who started his illustrious 19-year NHL career in Winnipeg, set rookie records with 76 goals and 132 points in a 1992-93 season Jets fans have never forgotten. He was cheered early when he touched the puck, while his teammates were booed.

Corey Perry scored a pair of goals for Anaheim, and Niklas Hagman added one. Selanne and Ryan Getzlaf both had two assists.

When Selanne's assists were announced, he was also cheered. The 41-year-old Finn has 10 goals and 23 assists to lead the team in points.

Fans were chanting Selanne's first name before the national anthems were played, but the Ducks forward didn't have much to smile about early.

By the time a video tribute to the Finnish Flash was shown on the scoreboard about eight minutes in, the Jets had already grabbed a 2-0 lead on goals by Kyle Wellwood and Blake Wheeler.

Hagman scored Anaheim's first goal, and Perry tied it with his 13th of the season when he beat Mason with less than two minutes left in the opening period.

Alex Burmistrov sent a long, high wrist shot past Ellis to give the Jets the lead again 31 seconds into the second period, and Andrew Ladd made it 4-2 with his 10th of the season with 1:40 left in the period.

The Jets stretched it to 5-2 early in the third when Zach Bogosian's long shot went through Ellis' pads.

Winnipeg forward Chris Thorburn was sent to the penalty box for tripping at 10:18 of the third, and Perry tipped in his second of the game eight seconds later.

Chris Mason turned away 33 shots for Winnipeg. Dan Ellis made 26 saves for Anaheim (9-18-5).

In the last minute of play, some fans chanted "Teemu" again.

NOTES: The Jets were 1-for-2 on the power play. The Ducks went 1-for-4. ... Winnipeg will play the fourth game of a six-game homestand Tuesday when the Jets host the New York Islanders. ... The Ducks, who lost 4-1 on Friday to Chicago, will face the Stars in Dallas on Monday.
