Fowler’s OT Goal Sends Ducks Past Stars
DALLAS (AP) — Teemu Selanne scored the tying goal with 5.4 seconds left in regulation and Cam Fowler netted the winner 1:42 into overtime to give the Anaheim Ducks a stirring 4-3 comeback victory over the Dallas Stars in a key Western Conference matchup on Wednesday night.
Anaheim appeared headed toward a loss before Selanne and Fowler stepped up and stretched the Ducks’ winning streak to four.
Fowler took a pass from Bobby Ryan on a 2-on-1 break and beat goalie Kari Lehtonen to push the eighth place Ducks one point ahead of Dallas in the West. Selanne made that possible when he popped a loose puck into an open net in the final seconds of the third period for his 629th NHL goal.
