ANAHEIM Custom Florida Panthers Jerseys , Calif. (AP) Down by two goals in the third period and playing without their starting goalie, the Anaheim Ducks were in danger of taking a loss that would certainly hurt their playoff chances.But the Ducks have been through plenty of turmoil this season, and that experience was on display as they rallied for a critical win.Ondrej Kase scored 1:34 into overtime and Anaheim defeated the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 on Sunday night.”It’s been a hard year,” said Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano, who had a goal and an assist. ”It’s been a grind in terms of injuries and how we’ve played, and we want to make it count. You don’t want to not be in it, and I think we’re pushing ourselves right to the bitter end to get in there.”Adam Henrique and Ryan Kesler also scored for the Ducks, who moved into third place in the Pacific Division. Anaheim is one point ahead of Los Angeles with three games remaining for both teams.Kase used a subtle fake on a 2-on-1 break to get Avalanche goalie Jonathan Bernier moving left, creating enough space to win it by going to the short side over Bernier’s right shoulder.”He’s a special talent,” Kesler said. ”He does something stupid every night, and that was definitely pretty stupid.”While Kase won it with speed and skill, the Ducks got to overtime thanks to hard work. They were determined to get more bodies in front of Bernier in the third period, and the grit paid off as Henrique cut Anaheim’s deficit to 3-2 at 7:43 with a sharp-angle shot and Kesler tied it 3-all at 9:19 by pouncing on a rebound in the slot.”That’s the way we are built,” Kesler said. ”Obviously www.officialkings.com , they are more of a skill team over there, so we want to play to our strengths and we did tonight.”Ryan Miller made 19 saves after replacing John Gibson at the start of the second period, helping the Ducks to their fifth straight home win. Gibson, who made 10 saves before departing, appeared to be shaken up late in the first when Gabriel Landeskog was hit from behind by Kesler and knocked the goalie down.Kesler said Landeskog went out of his way to make contact with Gibson.”He threw himself into Gibby,” Kesler said. ”I gave him a slight jab, and he knows what he’s doing there. He knows better than that.”Gibson was being evaluated for an undisclosed injury, Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said.Tyson Jost scored twice and Alexander Kerfoot had a goal and an assist for Colorado, which passed St. Louis for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference. The Avalanche lead the Blues by one point, but St. Louis has four games remaining to Colorado’s three.”A point is a point,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. ”You’re not going to know if it’s enough, if it’s not enough. The only day the standings matter is next Saturday.”Bernier made 28 saves.The Avalanche took a 1-0 lead 1:16 into the game when Kerfoot got his 18th goal under unusual circumstances. Kerfoot won a faceoff against Rickard Rakell in the right circle and flicked the puck to his left, where it struck Corey Perry’s stake and redirected in.But the Ducks tied it at 1 on a breakaway by Cogliano at 6:08.Jost put the Avalanche up 2-1 at 1:04 of the second, scoring for the second game in a row on a backhand for a power-play goal. He made it 3-1 at 12:10 for his first career multi-goal game.NOTES: Ducks D Cam Fowler sustained an upper-body injury in the third. … The Avalanche went 5-3-3 in the first game of a back-to-back this season. … Ducks D Francois Beauchemin played in his 900th NHL game.UP NEXTAvalanche: Visit the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night.Ducks: Host the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday night.— NEW YORK — The New York Rangers showed their toughness in earning another shootout win Saturday night. A stunning shootout loss earlier Saturday means the Vancouver Canucks will have another opportunity to display their resiliency on six-game Eastern Conference road trip.The Rangers will look to continue their recent surge Los Angeles Kings T-Shirts Authentic , and the Canucks will hope to once again bounce back from a shootout defeat, when New York hosts Vancouver Monday night at Madison Square Garden.Both teams extended their points streak to six games Saturday.Article continues below ...The Rangers came back from a second-period deficit after blowing a two-goal lead and earned a 5-4 shootout win over the host Columbus Blue Jackets on Jimmy Vesey’s game-winner in the fifth round of the shootout. The visiting Canucks squandered a two-goal lead in the final three minutes of the third period and fell to the Buffalo Sabres in the shootout, 4-3.The Rangers (8-7-2) have won five of their last six (5-0-1), a span in which they’ve won three times in the shootout. The six-game stretch has been eventful, but in posting four comeback wins and salvaging a point when it blew a two-goal lead in 3-2 overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night, a rebuilding New York squad is proving it has a resourceful base.“I think it just shows a lot of mental strength that we have,” Rangers defenseman Neal Pionk told reporters Saturday night. “We’ve been through it before and I think we’re learning from it, growing from it.”The Canucks (10-6-2), who are 4-0-2 in their last six games and 1-0-2 on the road trip, absorbed a hard-earned lesson Saturday, when Jeff Skinner and Sam Reinhart forced overtime for the Sabres by scoring less than a minute apart in the waning moments of regulation.“We had our chances to put it away,” Canucks coach Travis Green told reporters afterward. “We had some decent efforts and some guys who just weren’t good.”It was the second time on the road trip the Canucks have blown a two-goal lead. Vancouver scored the first two goals against the Red Wings on Tuesday before falling in the shootout, 3-2.“You need to close it out, it’s that simple Los Angeles Kings Hoodies Authentic ,” Canucks defenseman Erik Gudbranson told reporters Saturday afternoon. “That definitely burns, but we’ve got to use it to our advantage and not let it happen again.”Since backup goalie Alexandar Georgiev started and earned the win Saturday in the second game of a back-to-back set for the Rangers, it is likely star goalie Henrik Lundqvist will be in net for New York on Monday night. Lundqvist took the defeat in his most recent appearance Friday, when he recorded 28 saves in the loss to the Red Wings.The Canucks, who will play a back-to-back set in New York and visit the Islanders on Tuesday night, are likely to split the starts in the Big Apple between number one goalie Jacob Markstrom, who has started the last seven games, and backup Anders Nilsson. Markstrom took the loss Saturday, when he recorded 34 saves. Nilsson hasn’t played since Oct. 25, when he took the defeat after making 26 saves in Vancouver’s 4-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes.Lundqvist is 8-5-0 in 13 career appearances against the Canucks.Markstrom (six games) and Nilsson (five games) are each 3-1-1 against the Rangers.
