Getzlaf’s Late Goal Lifts Ducks Over Flyers
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ryan Getzlaf scored with 1:46 left in the third period, sending the Anaheim Ducks to a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.
Getzlaf’s third goal of the season came amid a crowded scramble in front. Flyers goalie Sergei Bobrovsky appeared to have covered the puck, but officials said it went over the line. The goal was confirmed by video replay.
Lubomir Visnovsky and Jason Blake also scored for Anaheim, which had scored only three goals in four road games.
Visnovsky made it 1-0 just 35 seconds into the game when he flipped a wrist shot over
Bobrovsky’s right shoulder.
Scott Hartnell tied it nearly three minutes later, guiding a puck through traffic as he was falling. Claude Giroux also scored a tying goal for the Flyers in the second period.
