Going into Friday’s game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Anaheim Ducks, only one thing was guaranteed: One of these squads would end their losing streak.

Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop did everything he could to snap Tampa Bay’s three-game slump. He turned aside 41 straight shots, but Ducks netminder Jonas Hiller was having a great night as well.

It looked like the scoreless game would be decided by a shootout, but Ryan Getzlaf took advantage of a turnover in his own zone with mere seconds remaining in the overtime period.

Without any friendly faces to aide him and the Lightning closing in as he carried the puck across the ice, Getzlaf took a shot while continuing to race towards the net. Bishop stopped the initial attempt, but Getzlaf collected his own rebound and just barely cleared the Lightning goaltender with his second attempt.

You can watch that sequence below:

“It’s why the game is great,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said, according to the team’s website. “Ten seconds left in the game and one team is going on a rush one way and the puck ends up in the net the other way. What comes around goes around at some point that bounce will go our way, just didn’t tonight.”

Getzlaf’s efforts helped Anaheim end their five-game losing streak and improve to 16-6-3 this season.

    Both teams wanted to win and both goaltenders were sharp and on top of their game. Although Hiller was called-in the last minute to replace Fasth, superb efforts nevertheless. But the highlight is Perry’s body-check on the referee when Getzlaf scored the GWG. Epic!, LoL! I guess it’s his way of getting back at them for somewhat a horrible officiating night, accidental or not.

      The only problem was the ref will most likely remember.

      Wonder if we’ll hear anything from the ref’s union regarding a “grave concern regarding our members safety” 😉

    Hiller and Bishop were both great but Bishop really put on a clinic. The quantity were in the Ducks favor, but the QUALITY shots Bishop faced were a cut above most of the Bolts chances. Stamkos is sorely missed. Not disrespecting Hiller’s effort at all.

    Losing Gudas in the 2nd really put even more pressure on Tampa’s D and it showed in the 3rd and OT. Even the young guys were gassed.

    Great game and effort by both teams. Not a 1-0 snoozer at all.

    Bishop played an amazing game but didn’t have much help. The Bolts secondary scorers need to step up.
