RALEIGH Mario Lemieux Jersey , N.C. (AP) — Ryan Getzlaf came close to scoring but had nothing to show for it except a stuffed breakaway and a ringing post.He certainly didn’t miss in overtime.Getzlaf scored 1:15 into OT, and the Anaheim Ducks rallied to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 on Friday night.Pontus Aberg scored the tying goal with 3:50 left in regulation, and the Ducks won their third straight and fifth in six games.“The biggest thing is that we’re finding a way at the moment,” Getzlaf said. “I thought we played mostly good hockey throughout this trip. … It’s about finding ways to win, and our goalie gave us a chance to do that tonight.”Andrei Svechnikov scored an early goal for Carolina, which has earned points in five of six but went 0 for 6 on the power play for the second time this season.“The power play needed to get one,” first-year coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “That puts it away.”John Gibson stopped 33 shots — including breakaways by Dougie Hamilton and Phil Di Giuseppe — despite minimal offensive support once again.“It kind of seemed like at the beginning of the year, we were finding ways to lose Matt Murray Jersey ,” Gibson said. “And now it’s starting to turn. … We’ve had a knack for finding ways to come back and winning some games that maybe we thought we were out of and maybe shouldn’t have won.”The Ducks’ scoring average of 2.22 goals ranks ahead of only Los Angeles, and their average of 26.4 shots ranks last in the league. They haven’t scored more than three goals in any of their last five games.“We’re OK without scoring five goals a night,” said Getzlaf, who was stopped on a second-period breakaway and rang the right post with about nine minutes left in regulation.“Sometimes you need your goaltender,” he added, “and tonight, we needed him.”Aberg tied it late in the third by tapping an airborne puck past Curtis McElhinney. A review confirmed the puck was not struck by a high stick.“They got a lucky goal to tie it up — that’s really what that was,” Brind’Amour said. “And then their skilled player took over at the end.”Getzlaf won it by slipping past the Carolina defenders at the blue line http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-olli-maatta-jersey , taking a long pass from Hampus Lindholm and faking McElhinney left before beating him high.“That was just an opportunity I saw to get behind somebody, and Hampus made a great pass,” Getzlaf said.McElhinney finished with 27 saves but fell to 7-2-1 for the Hurricanes in their first game since struggling goaltender Scott Darling was waived and then assigned to their AHL affiliate in Charlotte.Svechnikov scored the game’s first goal with 1:03 left in the first period. The Russian rookie took a feed from Hamilton and beat Gibson with a blast from behind the left circle.NOTES: The Hurricanes fell to 7-0-2 when Svechnikov earns a point. … Lindholm was back for Anaheim after missing six games with a lower-body injury. … Carolina was without LW Micheal Ferland (concussion), who has a team-best 11 goals.UP NEXTDucks: Wrap up a five-game eastern swing Sunday at Washington.Hurricanes: Begin a western swing Sunday night at Los Angeles. DETROIT (AP) The Boston Bruins’ formula looks almost foolproof at the moment: Rask and the rookies.Tuukka Rask made 26 saves, and rookies Sean Kuraly and Danton Heinen scored for Boston in a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night. David Krejci also scored for the Bruins, who are 17-1-4 in their last 22 games and only three points behind NHL-leading Tampa Bay in the Atlantic Division.Boston won without forward Brad Marchand, who served the final game of his five-game suspension for elbowing New Jersey’s Marcus Johansson.”We were joking about it after the game – we’re not sure Marchie is a lock to get back into this lineup,” coach Bruce Cassidy said. ”Frank (Vetrano) had a lower-body injury Womens Patric Hornqvist Jersey , and we’ll have to see how he is tomorrow, but it is tough to break up this group.”The Bruins have an NHL-high 38 goals by rookies this season. Rask, meanwhile, improved to 19-0-2 in his last 21 games. Detroit had only 12 shots through two periods before adding 16 in the third.”We’re not going to skill our way to wins,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. ”We have to outwork the other team every night, and we’ve just got to decide that we’re going to be special that way.”Martin Frk scored a power-play goal in the second for Detroit, but the Bruins quickly wiped out that lead later in the period with goals by Kuraly and Krejci. Heinen scored with 11:39 remaining in the third to put Boston up by two.With their goalie pulled, the Red Wings moved within one when Frans Nielsen scored with 1:24 to play Phil Kessel Jersey , but Boston held on.”We’ve known all year that we have a great team if we just focus on what we’re supposed to be doing,” Rask said. ”We aren’t worried about other teams, and we’re getting off to better starts, but even if we get a goal behind like we did today, we know that we can still win the game if we play our game.”Frk opened the scoring when he beat Rask from the left circle, and Darren Helm whiffed on a rebound later in the second, missing a chance to double Detroit’s lead. Kuraly equalized with 7:49 remaining in the period.Just more than two minutes later, after a scramble in front Sidney Crosby Jersey , the puck popped out to Krejci in the slot. With goalie Jimmy Howard out of position, Krejci scored his 10th goal of the season.Heinen beat Howard high to the blocker side for his 12th goal . Nielsen made it 3-2 when he put a rebound past Rask.Nielsen had another chance in the final minute when the puck bounced to his feet right in front of the net, but he wasn’t able to get his stick on it cleanly.”I just fanned on it,” Nielsen said. ”I know it was bouncing right there. I think it went down on the heel or something.”NOTES: Detroit D Nick Jensen played his 100th game. … Boston forward David Pastrnak assisted on Kuraly’s goal, extending his point streak to nine games.UP NEXTBruins: Visit the New York Rangers on Wednesday night.Red Wings: Visit the New York Islanders on Friday night.—
