ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Ryan Kesler tied the score on a power play with his second goal of the game early in the third period, Ryan Getzlaf got the deciding goal in the fourth round of the shootout, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the St. Louis Blues 4-3 Friday night.

Corey Perry also scored for the Ducks and John Gibson made 25 saves.

Ryan Reaves, Troy Brouwer and Robby Fabbri scored for the Blues, who have lost five in a row (0-2-3) for the first time since dropping their final six of the 2013-14 season. They were coming off back-to-back overtime losses to Ottawa and Colorado in which they squandered two-goal leads in both games – and did it again against the Ducks.

The Blues have lost 10 straight games in Anaheim since Oct. 17, 2009.
