Ryan’s OT Penalty Shot Sends Ducks Past Wings, 2-1
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Bobby Ryan scored on a penalty shot at 2:50 of overtime and the Anaheim Ducks snapped the Detroit Red Wings’ five-game road winning streak with a wild 2-1 victory Wednesday night.
Ryan was hauled down on a breakaway moments after the Ducks killed off a penalty, and the American goal scorer put a quick shot past Jimmy Howard’s glove for his 30th goal of the season.
Dan Ellis made 28 saves for the Ducks, who have won two straight after a five-game skid threatened their playoff chances. Jason Blake had a third-period goal for Anaheim.
Pavel Datsyuk scored a second-period power-play goal, and Howard made 26 saves for Detroit, which hadn’t lost on the road since Feb. 5.
