(AP) — Ryan Getzlaf scored two goals, including the unassisted game-winner with 24 seconds left, to give the Anaheim Ducks a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in the National Hockey League on Saturday night.

Matt Beleskey also scored and Frederick Andersen stopped 27 shots to help the Ducks get their first win of the season.

Gustav Nyquist and Luke Glendening scored for Detroit, and Jimmy Howard had 23 saves.

On the winning goal, Getzlaf skated away from Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall in the corner and backhanded a shot past goalie Howard.

Nyquist scored less than two minutes into the third period to give the Red Wings a 2-1 lead but Beleskey answered shortly afterward when he knocked in Ryan Kesler’s backhand pass.

Getzlaf gave Anaheim the lead less than two minutes into the second period when he scored on a pass from Corey Perry, who knocked the puck back to his teammate after sliding in front of Howard.

Glendening scored his second career goal later in the period to tie the score and nearly sent the Red Wings to the second intermission with one-goal lead. He broke away down the left side of the ice but Andersen stopped his breakaway attempt seconds before the horn.

At Toronto, Sidney Crosby had a goal and two assists, all on the power play, for his second straight three-point game and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-2.

Patric Hornqvist, Chris Kunitz, Evgeni Malkin and Brandon Sutter also scored for Pittsburgh, which got a solid showing in goal from Marc-Andre Fleury. Malkin also had a three-point night, with a pair of assists.

The line of Crosby, Hornqvist and Kunitz finished with six points and the Penguins went 3-for-5 on the power play.

Joffrey Lupul and Tyler Bozak scored for Toronto.

At Columbus, Ohio, Cam Atkinson scored twice while Marko Dano and Nick Foligno each had a goal and an assist to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 5-2 win over the New York Rangers.

Artem Anisimov, like Atkinson, scored for the second game in a row for the Blue Jackets, who moved to 2-0 for the first time in five years.

Dano had his first NHL goal and points and Scott Hartnell and Ryan Johansen had two assists apiece.

Former Columbus captain Rick Nash picked up his third goal and Lee Stempniak also scored for the Rangers, who opened the season by splitting two road games.

Anthony Duclair had two assists, also his first career NHL points, for the Rangers.

Eric Nystrom had a goal and two assists to lead the Nashville Predators to a 4-1 win over the Dallas Stars.

Shea Weber, Paul Gaustad, and Roman Josi also scored for Nashville and Pekka Rinne stopped 17 shots to help the Predators open the season with their second straight win.

Antoine Roussel scored for Dallas, and which has lost their first two.

Damon Severson scored his first NHL goal to cap a four-goal opening period by New Jersey and the Devils chased Roberto Luongo early to beat the Florida Panthers 5-1.

Severson also got his first assist. Ryane Clowe, Marek Zidlicky, Martin Havlat and Eric Gelinas scored goals for the Devils and Cory Schneider stopped 28 shots.

Derek MacKenzie scored for Florida, which lost its home opener for the first time in five seasons.

In other games, the New York Islanders had a 4-3 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes, the St. Louis Blues beat the Calgary Flames 4-1 and the Ottawa Senators edged the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 .
