It initially seemed to work. The Ducks jumped out to a 3-0 lead after the first period. Cam Fowler found the net on a wrist shot in just a little over five minutes played. Ryan Kesler added a tip in goal just 32 seconds later, and with just over five minutes remaining in the period, Sami Vatanen found the net on a slap shot.
End of 1st period: DUCKS: 3 HAWKS: ZIPPITY-DO-DAH…Well played, gents! @AnaheimDucks
While the end of regulation went pretty poorly for the Ducks, it was Matt Beleskey who stepped up and won the game after cashing in on a rebound opportunity just 45 seconds into overtime. Estevez got a little aggressive in his celebration.
