Video: Ducks conjure another third-period comeback

The Anaheim Ducks did it again.

Battling for the Pacific Division title, the Ducks fell behind the Edmonton Oilers in the third period by a pair of goals, but rallied for the 3-2 win in regulation. Corey Perry scored twice – he’s up to 41 goals on the season – and set up Francois Beauchemin for the winning goal with 1:21 remaining.

Earlier this week, the Ducks overcame a four-goal deficit to defeat the Winnipeg Jets in overtime. The recent comeback kids now lead the San Jose Sharks by three points for the Pacific Division lead late in the regular season.

Meanwhile, the season of disappointment continues for the Oilers. They remain at 61 points and are officially not in the playoff race.

“I think it’s safe to say this has been the toughest year out of the four I’ve faced — just with the expectations we had coming in and the way that we’ve played has let everyone, including ourselves, down,” said Taylor Hall earlier in the week, as per the Edmonton Journal.

The first highlight clip below shows the tying goal – a Perry deflection in front that counts as his 41st of the season.

The second highlight clip is of Beauchemin’s winner, which was a one-time slap shot that Edmonton’s goalie Viktor Fasth would probably like to have back.

    I wonder how many Duck fans started wishing they’d been at the Angels game a couple blocks away during each of these nights, only to end each one realizing they made the right choice.

      The way the Angels have played, I think they were very happy being at teh Ducks Game. Although Ducks fans may start to take the “Late Arriving” California fans to a new level and stay in the bar until the start of the 3rd period ,when the Ducks finally show up for the win.

    Nah. Even when the Ducks are sucking they are fun to watch. At least for me . . . They still find ways to win even when they suck. I’ll take that.
