Anaheim Ducks Use Power Play Unit To Defeat The Colorado Avalanche 4-3 In Overtime

Power Play Saves The Day For Ducks

Anaheim, CA – Jonas Hiller actually started in net tonight for the Anaheim Ducks. He stopped 23 shots. The Ducks used a strong power play presence throughout the game, scoring three of their four goals.

First Period:

The Avalanche started the scoring with a Cody McLeod slapshot at the 2:28 mark. Nick Bonino was called for a high sticking on Chuck Kobasew that drew blood and a double minor. P.A. Parenteau notched a wrister at the 12:54 mark. About 30 seconds later, Luca Sbisa slashed Jamie McGinn, but the penalty kill was efficient. Kyle Palmieri launched the puck over the glass with two minutes left in the frame that also was killed.

Second Period:

Parenteau was called for cross-checking 35 seconds into the middle frame. Shortly after, Greg Zanon was called for holding. The Bruce Boudreau called the timeout to discuss the 5-on-3. The Aves were able to kill off both penalties. At the 6:59 mark, Corey Perry tipped the puck in. Thirty seconds later, the Ducks were on the man advantage again. Just before the power play ended, Teemu Selanne netted the equalizer. John Mitchell‘s wrister put the Avalanche back in the lead.

Third Period:

In the final frame, Landeskog slashed Bonino while the Avalanche were on the man advantage. Ryan Getzlaf netted a wrister to even the score at the 8:49 mark. The remaining time in regulation passed without incident.


Perry won the game with a power play tip-in in the closing seconds of the extra frame.
