ANAHEIM, CA -- Here is a quick Rapid Reaction to Game 5 between the Oilers and Ducks.

THE SCOOP: The Ducks scored three goals with their net empty late in the third to erase a 3-0 Oilers lead and send the game into overtime. Corey Perry scored in double overtime to win the game 4-3 for the Ducks as they take a 3-2 series lead back to Edmonton for Game 6.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Corey Perry receives a pass in front of the Oilers net, then waits patiently for Talbot to go down. He slipped the puck past the Oilers netminder to take the game 4-3 in double overtime.

FIRST STAR: Cam Talbot. The netminder was vital for the Oilers making 60 saves on 64 shots which is now an Oilers playoff record. 

TRENDING UP: Adam Larsson. The Oilers defenceman played over 40 minutes and had a strong performance after Andrej Sekera was injured and could not return to the game.

WHAT'S NEXT: Game 6 will be played Sunday in Edmonton. The game can be seen via Sportsnet starting at 5:00 PM MDT.
