Jakob Silfverberg scores overtime victor in 4-3 Ducks win over Oilers

We're still not sure, it seems. Corey Perry did indeed move Cam Talbot's blocker away as he moved through the crease so the goalie couldn't make a routine save on Getzlaf, and maybe that should have been icing instead of it being waived off just before Getzlaf fed Jakob Silfverberg for the overtime victor.

But he's not about to criticize the process.

"You really think I'm going to answer that?" Anaheim came into the season expecting to compete for a league title and while they got off to a bit of a slow start they have rebounded nicely, they won the Pacific division, and now are two wins away from advancing to the Western Conference final where the Blues or Predators will be awaiting.

"We're comfortable playing there".

Talbot acknowledged his own frustration over the non-call but said: "At the same time, we had a 3-nothing lead with 3 1/2 minutes to go. He clearly hit my blocker and my pad, and there was no way I could make that save". They don't do my job, they don't tell me who to put on the ice. For example, I firmly believe that if the TV analysts spent as much time explain zone exits and entries as they did faceoffs the collective hockey IQ of the average fan would jump 20 points. For Caggiula, it was his second goal of the playoffs.

Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf, 31, scored two goals in game four and assisted on two others that kept Anaheim's playoff hopes alive He also made squad history as his deuces in the second period were the 35th and 36th of his postseason career, breaking Teemu Selanne's franchise record. Although the Ducks pulled even with Edmonton by remaining unbeaten on the road in these playoffs, Anaheim has never overcome a 2-0 deficit to win a playoff series.

Oilers coach Todd McLellan was able to challenge the call because he didn't use his timeout moments earlier when the Ducks scored twice in 35 seconds. They pushed the pace and had Anaheim for most of the first. But it can not be said that their stars haven't come to play. Klefbom, Larsson, and Lucic need to move past the reversed icing call that caught all of them off guard and eventually out of position.

"A hundred per cent, he said".

Maybe this series is simply destined for Game 7.

Three six-on-five goals.

"That's the challenge for us moving forward - find a way to contribute and step up".

"The breaks between periods have hurt us throughout the series".

"It's a weird series when you take that both teams have (gone) into one another's building and won both games", Carlyle said. Edmonton has lost back to back games and I think that trend continues as the Ducks get their first home win of the series and send this back to Edmonton up 3-2. Blowing a two-game advantage isn't ideal but on the job training nearly never goes as smoothly as one hopes and this has been no different.

Not only is Ducks goalie John Gibson a good puck handler, but the Oilers are struggling with Anaheim's quick feet on the back end.

Well, what can you say about that Ducks vs.

The Oilers have had no effective way of slowing Getzlaf down and Ducks coach Randy Carlyle has made a decision to have Getzlaf and fellow centre Ryan Kesler out at the same time as the game wears on. Dmitrij Jaskin gave it to them. "We had too many opportunities to not capitalize". They gave themselves that with a rally for the ages. Then it still took another 9-10 minutes into the 3rd period before the Oilers got their legs going again.
