NHL Game Summary - Anaheim at Edmonton|
(Thursday, April 5th)
Final Score: Anaheim 3, Edmonton 2 (OT)
Edmonton, AB (Sports Network) - Ryan Getzlaf scored 1:12 into overtime to give
the Anaheim Ducks a 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers.
In the extra session, a missed shot by Edmonton saw the puck come all the way
out of the zone and Getzlaf caught up to it at the Edmonton blueline. He then
cut to the front and slipped a backhander in for the win.
Bobby Ryan and Andrew Cogliano both scored for the Ducks, who snapped a three-
game slide. Jeff Deslauriers gave up two goals on 26 shots in the win.
"It was nice to get the win here because we want to finish this season strong
and go into the summer with our heads held high," said Cogliano.
Sam Gagner and Jordan Eberle both scored for the Oilers, who dropped their
final four home games of the season. Devan Dubnyk gave up all three goals on
"I thought we did a good job in the first period, but it would have been nice
to get a goal," said Edmonton head coach Tom Renney. "That kind of cost us in
the long run."
Edmonton scored halfway through the second when Gagner banged in the rebound
from the right of the net, but the Ducks scored goals 36 seconds apart later
in the second.
The first came at the 17:05 mark when Cogliano danced into the zone down the
right wing and beat Dubnyk with a wrister. The Ducks got the next one off a
faceoff win that saw Ryan jam it in from in front.
The Oilers tied the game with 6:12 to play as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins knocked the
puck over to the slot for Eberle, who went in all alone and made a nifty move
to the backhand before sliding it past Deslauriers.
