ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Rick Nash scored the only goal of the shootout and the Columbus Blue Jackets ended a four-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Mighty Ducks on Sunday.

Nash beat Anaheim goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere with a backhander on the third Columbus shot of the tiebreaker.

Blue Jackets goalie Pascal Leclaire then stopped Teemu Selanne on the final Anaheim shot to give Columbus its first win since the Olympic break.

The Blue Jackets had lost four straight, including the first three games on a four-game road trip that ended Sunday.

Jaroslav Balastik and Nikolai Zherdev scored power-play goals in the first period to give Columbus a 2-1 lead. That stood up until the third period when Andy McDonald tied it for Anaheim with just 2:24 left in regulation.

The Ducks had a power-play opportunity in overtime but couldn't beat Leclaire, who had 43 saves. He also stopped Anaheim captain Scott Niedermayer on a third-period penalty shot.

David Vyborny set up Balastik for a goal from the slot to give Columbus a 1-0 lead 11 minutes into the game.

Anaheim forward Ryan Getzlaf deflected in a slap shot by former Columbus defenseman Francois Beauchemin during a Ducks power play to make it 1-1 at 16:30 of the first period.

The Blue Jackets used the power play to retake the lead less than 2 minutes later on Zherdev's fourth goal in four games.

Nash and Sergei Fedorov assisted on Zherdev's goal, giving the trio 36 goals in 30 games since Nash returned from injury on Dec. 17.
