ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ryan Getzlaf scored the tying goal in the third period and set up Corey Perry's second of the game at 4:14 of overtime as the Anaheim Ducks beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 on Sunday night for their sixth straight victory and 10th in 11 games.

The Ducks (13-2-1) have the NHL's second-best record.

Teemu Selanne scored his 668th career goal, tying Luc Robitaille for 11th place on the NHL list. It also was his 250th power-play goal, breaking a tie with Phil Esposito for third place.

Defenseman Francois Beauchemin had a career-high four assists.

Anaheim improved to 8-2-1 after allowing the first goal, and eight of the Ducks' wins this season have been one-goal victories.

John Mitchell, Cody McLeod and P.A. Parenteau scored for Colorado, and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 20 of his 35 saves in the second period against his former team.
