Historic comeback leads Ducks past Jets

NHL.com | Tuesday, 04.01.2014 / 9:27 AM

Stephane Robidas scored 16 seconds into overtime and the Anaheim Ducks staged the biggest comeback in team history by rallying from four goals down to beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-4 at Honda Center on Monday night.

Andrew Cogliano and Luca Sbisa assisted on Robidas' fifth goal of the season. Anaheim outshot the Jets 25-6 in the third period and outscored them 3-0 to force overtime.

Corey Perry tied it 4-4 with 22.7 seconds remaining in regulation, scoring his 39th goal after Anaheim pulled rookie goalie Frederik Andersen for an extra skater.

Nick Bonino cut the Ducks' deficit to 4-1 in the second period, and Ryan Getzlaf and Hampus Lindholm scored in the third to set up Perry's game-tying goal. Andersen made 32 saves.

The Ducks (49-18-8) established a franchise record for most wins in a season.

"When you always believe you can win, you’re never out of the game," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I think that was what happened tonight. We were so vastly outplayed in the first 35 minutes of the game. But when [Nick] Bonino scored and Freddie [Andersen] made the big save 20 seconds later, we thought if we could get another one, you never know."

Anaheim remained atop of the Pacific Division, three points ahead of the idle San Jose Sharks with a game in hand. The Ducks trail the Western Conference-leading St. Louis Blues by one point.

"You're down 4-0 and you come back, 4-4. Now the pressure is on the other team because they gave up a lead like that," Robidas told the Ducks website. "We just tried to play our game. I got lucky and it went in."

Jacob Trouba, Matt Halischuk, Blake Wheeler and Eric Tangradi scored for Winnipeg, which is 1-2-1 on its road trip that ends Tuesday at the Phoenix Coyotes.

"You're just awfully disappointed because you like so much of what you saw," Jets coach Paul Maurice said. "And then to have it go away from you like that, it's frustrating. It's tough. It's tough to lose a game like that."

The Jets took a 1-0 lead on Trouba's ninth goal of the season 8:48 in. Trouba beat Andersen with a wrist shot on the glove side from in close. Bryan Little earned an assist to extend his point streak to six games.

Later in the period, Winnipeg took advantage of a Ducks mistake in their zone and made it 2-0. Halischuk scored his fifth of the season at 13:39.

Winnipeg dominated play in the first period and outshot the Ducks 19-4 and had a 31-11 edge in shots after two periods.

The Jets increased their lead to 3-0 just 33 seconds into the second period on a power-play goal by Wheeler, who leads Winnipeg with 27 goals.

The Jets have scored five power-play goals the past five games.

Tangradi added Winnipeg's fourth goal of the game, from Zach Redmond and Anthony Peluso, midway through the second period.

"It's frustrating," Jets defenseman Mark Stuart said. "There's not a whole lot to say right now after a game like that. It's shock. I don't know, I don't have a whole lot for you."

Bonino's 20th goal of the season brought the Ducks within 4-1 with 2:16 left in the second.

Getzlaf scored via the power play, his 31st goal of the season, at 3:06 of the third and Lindholm made it 4-3 1:13 later.

Patrick Maroon had two assists for the Ducks.

"We beared down and did what we needed to do in the third period," Getzlaf said. "That's about all we can take out of this one. It was a character win. We were able to come back and play the way we needed to play. We'll watch that video and learn from it. Those are two big points for us."

Teemu Selanne, who began his NHL career and scored 147 goals with the original Winnipeg Jets, played his final game against the new Jets franchise that relocated to Winnipeg from Atlanta in 2011. Selanne has scored 684 career goals.
