Teemu Selanne’s Goal Helps Propel Ducks to Come From Behind Win

Peter Holland kicked off the night with his third goal of the season 1:24 into the the game. The play was set up on a Daniel Winnik takeaway. Jonathan Toews answered while the Blackhawks were shorthanded nearly four minutes in. The Ducks severely out-shot the the ‘Hawks.

Second Period:

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.

Third Period:

The final frame saw a huge shift in momentum as a potential Brandon Bollig goal was reversed after it was shown that he kicked the puck into the net past Jonas Hiller. 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.
