Perry then added his 26th goal of the season, scoring off a scramble in front with 6:55 remaining. Teemu Selanne assisted on both goals.

George Parros scored for Anaheim in the first period, and Gilbert Brule tied it in the second. Marc Pouliot added a power-play goal for Edmonton in the final minute.
