Both teams went back and forth in the middle frame. Nick Leddy netted his fourth of the year on the power play at the 11:54 mark. The middle frame only got a little chippy, but cooler heads prevailed and no major or double minors were accrued.

Bobby Ryan evened up the score with 5:27 left in the game. Teemu Selanne gave the Ducks the lead just over a minute later. The ‘Hawks attempted to tie up the game with the extra attacker, but Sheldon Souray put the puck in the empty net to ice the game.
