2/13/16: Ryan Getzlaf finds the rebound and drills it past Corey Crawford for the game-winner, giving the Ducks a 3-2 win in overtime

CHICAGO -- It looked like Patrick Kane might give the Chicago Blackhawks their third overtime win against the Anaheim Ducks this season when he went in on a breakaway during the first shift of the extra period at United Center on Saturday. 

Instead, Kane missed the net and Anaheim flipped the script. Ryan Getzlaf scored a power-play goal at 2:16 of overtime by knocking the rebound of defenseman Cam Fowler's shot past goaltender Corey Crawford to give the Ducks a 3-2 victory.

"At the 15-second mark, they get a breakaway and that guy that got the breakaway is not a bad player," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said of Kane, who leads the NHL with 78 points. "So, when he missed, I said maybe things are looking up for us." 

The Ducks (27-19-8) had another key thing go their way to create the power play. Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook wasn't able to leave the ice soon enough as Kane jumped on during a shift change, and Chicago was assessed a penalty for having too many men on the ice.

Getzlaf scored on the ensuing power play. 

"They tried to pull a quick change there," said Anaheim forward David Perron, who scored a goal midway through the third period that gave the Ducks a short-lived 2-1 lead. "I think if it's regulation, they probably get away with that. It's a little bit easier on the refs to look at changes on 3-on-3. There's less guys to look at. But they didn't get away with that one. We were able to score there. Nice goal by [Getzlaf]."

After winning three straight games coming out of the All-Star break, the Blackhawks (36-18-5) are 0-2-1 entering the finale of a four-game homestand against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday. 

"We just haven't quite had the speed and the momentum, that jump we've been looking for," Chicago captain Jonathan Toews said. "Tonight was a little bit better, but I think top-to-bottom, all four lines need to be better."

The Blackhawks, who got rookie left wing Artemi Panarin back from an illness that cost him two games, will be challenged to accomplish that goal without right wing Marian Hossa for a while, according to coach Joel Quenneville. Hossa was injured battling for a puck with Anaheim defenseman Hampus Lindholm at 14:48 of the second period and didn't return because of a lower-body injury. 

"We don't think it's serious, but he could miss some time," Quenneville said. "You definitely miss [him] playing the right way, but [it] definitely create some opportunity for some guys that haven't done much recently [who] should look forward to getting a greater chance." 

All three games between the Ducks and Blackhawks were decided in overtime. Chicago won the first two, but couldn't complete the sweep.

"We'll take a point tonight," Quenneville said. "I don't think we deserved a point, but we'll take it." 

Jakob Silfverberg and Perron scored for the Ducks (27-19-8) and Andersen made five saves in relief of starter John Gibson, who left the game after the second period with an upper-body injury. Gibson made 16 saves.

Seabrook scored both Blackhawks' goals to set an NHL career-high with 10, and Crawford made 41 saves.

The Blackhawks were outshot 23-17 through the first two periods, but took a 1-0 lead into the third on Seabrook's power-play goal. Nate Thompson was called for hooking with 4:50 left in the second period on a play that sent Chicago forward Richard Panik tumbling into Gibson, and Seabrook scored 18 seconds later with a slap shot off his own rebound.

Hossa left 22 seconds before Thompson's penalty, after Lindholm cut in front of him attempting to steal the puck. Hossa fell and had to be helped to his feet. Gibson finished the period but did not start the third. 

The Ducks scored twice in in the first half of the third period to take the lead. Silfverberg tied it at 4:56 during a scramble in front of the net, and Perron gave the Ducks the lead at 8:38 with a one-timer from the slot off a feed from the right corner by Getzlaf. 

Seabrook tied it 2-2 at 12:01 with a slap shot from the right point, setting the stage for another overtime finish. This time it was won by the Ducks, who are 8-1-1 in their past 10 games and 2-1-1 on a seven-game road trip that continues Monday against the Calgary Flames. 

"We've had great hockey games against them," Getzlaf said. "We expected nothing else tonight. They're a great team. They have some guys that can score at will, so it was nice to get that win in overtime."
