Ducks 6, Blues 5 (SO): Nick Bonino scored the decisive goal in the sixth round of the shootout as Anaheim extended host St. Louis' winless streak to four games.
Bobby Ryan scored two goals and set up two others, Teemu Selanne had a tally and three assists and Saku Koivu added a goal and a helper for the Ducks, who have won five of six overall and improved to 2-1-0 on their season-high six-game road trip.
With the shootout even after three rounds, both teams converted their fourth and fifth opportunities before Patrik Berglund began the sixth by shooting wide. Participating in the bonus format for the first time in his career, Bonino ended it by sliding the puck between Brian Elliott's pads.
Alex Steen and Chris Stewart had a goal and two assists apiece while captain David Backes, David Perron and T.J. Oshie also scored for the Blues, who have been outscored 21-10 during their winless stretch.
After Steen and Ryan traded goals, Backes and Perron beat Viktor Fasth late in the first period to give St. Louis a 3-1 lead. Anaheim moved ahead with three tallies in a 1:41 span in the second, but Oshie tied it early in the third and Stewart answered Koivu's goal at 13:41 by converting a power-play chance less than two minutes later to knot the contest at 5-5.
