ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -Corey Perry scored the deciding goal in the shootout as the Anaheim Ducks rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche.

After Perry opened the shootout by beating Colorado goalie Peter Budaj, Anaheim's Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped all three Colorado shooters to secure the Ducks' seventh victory in eight games.

Trailing 2-1, the Ducks tied the game when Rob Niedermayer deflected a shot by Chris Pronger past Budaj with 10:37 to play.

The loss was the fifth straight for Colorado. The Avalanche had not previously lost five consecutive games in nearly ten years since dropping six from March 30-April 11, 1998.

Teemu Selanne also scored his second goal of the season for the Ducks, who have won all three meetings between the teams this season.

Colorado got second-period goals from Jeff Finger and Andrew Brunette for a 2-1 lead before Niedermayer tied the game.

Giguere made 26 saves, while Budaj stopped 20-of-22 for the Avs.

The Ducks took a 1-0 lead when Chris Kunitz made a no-look pass between his legs from the edge of the crease to Selanne. Stationed on the right post, Selanne tapped in the feed during the second of back-to-back power plays 13:31 into the first.

The Ducks are 6-1 since Selanne, who led Anaheim with 48 goals last season, finally returned Feb. 5 after considering retirement for the first four months of the season.

Notes: The Ducks lost C Ryan Carter with a bruised right forearm in the first period. He will be further evaluated Thursday. ... Avalanche defenseman Kyle Cumiskey returned after missing 17 games with a groin injury. ... Colorado's leading scorer, Paul Stastny (appendectomy/groin), has also been out of the lineup since Jan. 15. ... Center Joe Sakic practiced with the team in Denver Tuesday and should return to the lineup during the road trip. Sakic has not played since suffering a groin injury on November 30. He underwent hernia surgery on December 28. ... Ducks C Doug Weight remains sidelined with a shoulder strain.
