NHL Three Stars: Corey Perry, double-OT hero

Share

The Oilers' best center is Connor McDavid, who might very well be the best player in the National Hockey League this season despite being only 20 years old. "You just go play and obviously when it's a tie game or a close game, you want to step up for your team".

Justin Schultz scored in a second straight game and Patric Hornqvist picked up his third of the postseason as Pittsburgh took a 3-1 lead in the series.

Corey Perry scored 6:57 into the second overtime after the Anaheim Ducks rallied from a three-goal deficit in the final minutes of regulation, completing a spectacular 4-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night and seizing a 3-2 lead in their second-round playoff series.

While the finish was great for the Ducks, the start wasn't so great.

McLellan has tried a little of everything short of kidnapping over the years in an attempt to slow down Getzlaf, first as coach of the San Jose Sharks and now with the Oilers the past two seasons.

One of the top contributors for the Bucks offense was Khris Middleton, who drained 20 points in their Thursday night victory. The Greek Freak isn't backing down from the spotlight in this series, his first real chance to be on a national showcase.

With 4:22 left in the opening frame, Edmonton would open the scoring on the man advantage.

At 17:43, McDavid made it 2-0, thanks to another Draisaitl pass that deflected off a Ducks defenseman.

Oilers winger Milan Lucic was on that Boston squad in '13. After a Ducks turnover in the neutral zone, Draisaitl and McDavid came in on a 2-on-1. This time, he banked the puck off Shea Theodore, and the puck went right to McDavid, who ripped a shot under the bar. They can either skate the puck out with their defense, get more methodical about supporting the plays along the wall, or trying passing up the middle. They are playing in the post-season for the first time since 2006.

Edmonton would head to the first intermission with a 2-0 lead and out-shooting the Ducks 16-10. They score the fourth goal and we never did recover off that.

Getzlaf had two goals and two assists Wednesday in Game 4, giving him eight points for the series.

Still, Trump also said this week that he would be prepared to meet with Kim if the circumstances were right. He also threatened secondary sanctions on companies doing illicit business with North Korea.

Just over four minutes later, the Ducks would tie the game. But the apparent goal was immediately waved off and a review upheld the original call, with Ritchie being determined to have redirected the puck with a high stick. "He's our captain. He's our leader".

Getzlaf sparked Anaheim's surge, scoring 97 seconds into the second and producing a go-ahead goal at 14:25. I feel like every Anaheim goal has been through Ryan Getzlaf.

The Ducks found life in the second period. A third time a shot squeezed through his legs but was swept out of harm's way as it trickled near the goal line by defenceman kris Russell. As the period wound down, it looked like it may not come. They should have been complaining about the Oilers' inability to stop Anaheim's Ryan Getzlaf, who scored twice and added two assists. He's done a lot of things that go unnoticed.

In the extra session, Getzlaf wouldn't need long to help his team even the series. Rakell made it 2-2 at 5:33 when Getzlaf threaded a goal-mouth pass over to him to bat past Talbot's glove.

The road team has won all four games in this series.

The Oilers continue their quest for a Western Conference title and will be out to end their two game slide as they head back to Anaheim on Friday in what has become a best of three series against the Ducks with a spot in the Western Conference final at stake.
