Recap


DUCKS 3, OILERS 2 (OT): Ryan Getzlaf's breakaway goal 1:12 into overtime lifted Anaheim to victory in Edmonton's home finale.

Getzlaf gathered a misfired Sam Gagner shot attempt and went in alone, firing a backhand shot past Edmonton netminder Devan Dubnyk for his fourth game winner of the season.

The win allowed Anaheim to take three of four in the season series with the Oilers, whose lone victory came last weekend.

After a scoreless first period, Gagner put the Oilers on the board midway through the second frame. The slumping forward knocked home a rebound of a Jeff Petry shot that rattled off the crossbar for his first point in five games.

Former Edmonton forward Andrew Cogliano knotted things at 17:05, streaking down the wing and snapping a shot past Dubnyk for his first goal in 18 outings.

Bobby Ryan gave the Ducks their first lead just 36 seconds later, converting a Devante Smith-Pelly rebound for his 29th of the campaign.

Edmonton pressed for the equalizer before finally converting with 6:12 remaining, as Eberle deked out Anaheim netminder Jeff Deslauriers on a feed from Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

GAME NOTEBOOK
: Cogliano had gone 14 games without a point before scoring. ... Nugent-Hopkins and Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog each had an assist to remain tied atop the rookie scoring race with 52 points apiece. ... Getzlaf has just 11 goals in 81 games, the lowest total of his career.
