ST. LOUIS (AP) - Teemu Selanne and Ryan Getzlaf scored in the shootout to lift Anaheim to a wild 6-5 victory over the St. Louis Blues after the Ducks squandered a two-goal lead late in regulation Monday night.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere made one save in the tiebreaker and watched St. Louis' other attempt go wide, as the Ducks tied idle Buffalo with an NHL-high 21 points.

Christan Backman nearly won it for the Blues in overtime, but his shot with just over five seconds left hit the right post behind Giguere. Backman gave St. Louis a 1-0 lead just 31 seconds into the game with his first goal of the season.

St. Louis erased a pair of two-goal deficits to earn a point in the standings.

Anaheim defenceman Scott Niedermayer snapped a tie with a 5-on-3 power-play goal at 2:51 of the third period and Dustin Penner pushed the Ducks' lead to 5-3 with another man-advantage goal 43 seconds later.

The Blues then set up for their comeback.

Keith Tkachuk scored his first of the season on a power play with 5:10 remaining in the third period, and Radek Dvorak got St. Louis even at 18:56.

Officials reviewed that goal for several moments to see if Dvorak struck the puck with a high stick. But he was credited with his fourth of the season.
