Oilers Send Ducks To 5th Straight Loss
ANAHEIM (AP) — Ales Hemsky scored the go-ahead goal with 6:31 left in the third period after a referee’s controversial ruling helped Anaheim overcome a two-goal deficit, and Devan Dubnyk
made 19 of his 38 saves in the first period in the Edmonton Oilers’ 4-2 victory over the Ducks on Sunday night.
Sam Gagne and Taylor Hall scored 1:41 apart in the second period, helping send the Ducks to their fifth straight loss following a six-game winning streak.
The victory was only Edmonton’s third in its last 17 games.
Tom Gilbert was credited with an empty-net goal with 16 seconds left after Anaheim’s Corey Perry pass attempt from behind the Edmonton goal went the length of the ice into his own goal.
The Ducks, playing without Teemu Selanne because of a groin injury, got goals from Bobby Ryan and Sako Koivu 22 seconds apart in the second period.
