HELSINKI -- Ryan Getzlaf scored the game-winner for the Anaheim Ducks as they held off Jokerit, 4-3, in overtime at Hartwall Areena. The puck came right to Getzlaf at the edge of the crease near the right post at 1:13 of the extra session.
The Ducks were outshot in the game 33-24, including a 27-16 advantage for Jokerit between the first intermission and the start of overtime.
Corey Perry had an assist on Getzlaf's goal and finished the game with 3 points.
Ben Eaves had a goal and an assist, and Ilari Filppula had a pair of assists for Jokerit.
Goalie Jonas Hiller made 30 saves for the Ducks, and coach Randy Carlyle praised him afterwards.
Carlyle also said defenseman Toni Lydman will not be available for either game this weekend. He was hoping to be back to play in his home country Friday of Finland for Friday's opener, but Carlyle said the team now is targeting the home opener next week against San Jose for Lydman, who had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder in May.
