Perry scores winner as Ducks outlast Jets 3-2

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) -- Winnipeg fans found plenty to cheer
about Sunday night even though the Jets were on the losing end
of their game against the Ducks.

Anaheim Teemu Selanne was making what could be his last visit to
Winnipeg on Sunday night, when the Ducks won 3-2 and Jets fans
voiced their appreciation for the man who began his NHL career
with Winnipeg in 1992-93 by setting rookie records of 76 goals
and 132 points.

The crowd gave a roaring cheer during the singing of the
American national anthem when the video board showed the
43-year-old Finnish Flash. And Selanne received a standing
ovation midway through the first period when the announcer at
MTS Centre noted his storied career, which Selanne has said will
end after this season.

He stood up from the bench and acknowledged the cheering with a
wave of his glove.

"Some ways, you felt that I was on the home team," Selanne said
with a laugh.

After playing 231 games in a Jets' uniform, Selanne was traded
to Anaheim in February 1996 and didn't get to move with the Jets
when they relocated to Phoenix and became the Coyotes at the end
of that season.

"I feel like even when I left, they have always been there
after, too, so it's a good feeling," he said.

Anaheim doesn't play in Winnipeg again this season unless the
teams meet in the playoffs.

Corey Perry was the on-ice hero for Anaheim when he capitalized
on a Winnipeg mistake to score the winning goal.

Jets defensemen Zach Bogosian had raced down the ice to grab a
loose puck behind the net, but when he turned to clear it up the
ice, he fanned on the shot and the puck went to Perry in front
of the net.

The Ducks winger quickly put a high shot above goalie Ondrej
Pavelec at 14:29 to the groan of Jets fans.

"If I didn't score that one, there'd be something going on,"
Perry said. "I wouldn't tell you what would happen, but it
wouldn't have been pretty.

"It was a gift and those are the ones you have to capitalize on,
especially right in front of the net with nobody around you."

Viktor Fasth made 15 saves for Anaheim, which also got goals
from Mathieu Perreault and Andrew Cogliano in concluding a
season-opening, three-game road trip.

Andrew Ladd had a pair of goals for Winnipeg, Blake Wheeler
assisted on both in his 375th NHL game and Pavelec stopped 31

Captain Ladd wasn't blaming Bogosian for the loss.

"We didn't deserve to win, regardless of that," Ladd said.
"Really the only reason we were in the game still was (Pavelec).

"Tough break. (Bogosian) slips and the puck ends up in the wrong
area and in the net. It's not his fault at all. It's on
everybody else in the room."

Jets coach Claude Noel was upset with his team's play, except
for Pavelec's performance.

"If you look at the way we played, we didn't deserve to win the
game playing that way," Noel said. "We got saved by our goalie.
And realistically, our goalie has saved us in all three games
(this season). He's been superb. Not average, superb."

He added Bogosian's error was a mistake that "sometimes

Even though the Jets were outshot 15-6 in the first period, they
held a 2-1 lead on Ladd's goals in the opening period.

First he deflected Wheeler's wrist shot just 11 seconds into a
power play to make it 1-0 at 9:06, but then Ducks center
Perreault tied it up 1:10 later when he flipped in a loose puck
past Pavelec.

Ladd got the go-ahead goal at 16:17, catching Fasth out of
position. After the puck bounced off the backboards, Fasth slid
to the other side of his crease, but Ladd quickly shot the puck
into the open side.

The Jets didn't get a shot on net until almost five minutes into
the second period and couldn't capitalize on two power-play

Anaheim tied it up with 4 seconds left in the middle period when
Cogliano redirected Dave Winnik's shot.

The Jets didn't get their first shot on goal in the third period
until almost seven minutes in, with Pavelec facing four shots in
the same span.

NOTES: Winnipeg defenseman Tobias Enstrom has four assists in
his first three games. ... Bogosian was playing in his 300th NHL
game. He was drafted by Atlanta in the first round, third
overall, in the 2008 entry draft. ... The Ducks will mark the
20th anniversary of their inaugural NHL game on Oct. 8. They
will celebrate at their home-opener on Oct. 10.
