Thursday, April 5, 2012
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Ryan Getzlaf scored in overtime as the Anaheim Ducks gave Edmonton fans an unhappy final look at their team at home this season, defeating the Oilers 3-2 on Thursday night.
An Edmonton shot caromed off the boards and came all the way down the ice for a Getzlaf breakaway, and he beat Edmonton goalie Devan Dubnyk through the legs 1:12 into extra time.
Andrew Cogliano and Bobby Ryan also scored for the Ducks who ended a three-game winless streak and moved up to 23rd in the NHL with one game to play this season.
Sam Gagner and Jordan Eberle scored for the Oilers who sit second-last in the NHL and finished off the year a 18-17-6 on home ice this season.
