Teemu Selanne tied Jari Kurri for 19th place on the all-time NHL list with 1,398 points.

Bobby Ryan scored on a backhand on a breakway go-ahead goal at 11:51 of the third period to give the Anaheim Ducks a 4-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers Monday night at Honda Center. Corey Perry added two goals in the third period, including an empty netter with 1:14 remaining.

Ryan's goal was assisted by Teemu Selanne, who recorded the 1,398th point of his career. That is good for 19th all-time, tied with fellow Finnish native Jari Kurri.

The Ducks opened the scoring with a power play goal from Jason Blake at 17:18 of the first period. Blake's sixth goal of the season was assisted by Ryan and Cam Fowler. That 1-0 lead held through most of the second period, even though the Oilers bombarded Hiller, starting in his club record 26th consecutive game on Monday night.

Edmonton outshot the Ducks 22-8 in the second period, finally cashing in with a Shawn Horcoff goal with 31 seconds remaining in the period to tie the game at 1-1.

Hiller saved 34 of 36 shots in the victory. The Ducks head to St. Louis to battle the Blues on Thursday.
