Ducks complete incredible ... and historic ... rally to take series lead vs. Edmonton

But not this one.

For some unknown reason to the hockey world, the officials allowed the Rakell goal to stand and ruled it a good goal.

Perry scored 6:57 into the second OT after the Ducks rallied from a three-goal deficit in the final minutes of regulation, completing a spectacular 4-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers and seizing a 3-2 lead in their second-round playoff series.

The explanation was not enough for the Oilers after their 4-3 loss in double overtime gave the Ducks a 3-2 lead in their second-round playoff series.

After a scoreless first period in Game 5, Draisaitl put the Oilers ahead 15 seconds into the second when his shot was kicked into the net by Gibson.

"I don't know what interference is anymore", McLellan said in disgust after the game. "It's an absolute joke that especially two really good referees can't make the right call at the right time".

"Will someone please ..." he raised his voice to the room. "He actually called that I'm going to score".

"They've already done that", Oilers coach Todd McLellan said of channeling the energy in a positive direction. "When he starts playing like he can, I think our whole team just follows suit". "We'd like to be in a better position than we are right now, but we're excited to take what we're seeing out of ourselves tonight and take it to another level going back home".

"For us to come out in the second period and get that sixth goal, that was big", Letestu said. "I mean, Leon makes a heck of a block, goes down, second shot goes off his back". We had a stick stripped out of our hands on the second one. "I don't know if there's something you can hang your hat on other than you cannot quit believing when you're in any situation". Obviously Kesler was pushed in, there's no doubt about that. "If you ask me, that was a desperate group". "I've said this before but I've never said it to a media person". That's when Game 7 is played in Anaheim. In a game that could have wrapped up the series and avoided the ghosts of Game 7s, they didn't even show up.

Cai said, adding that he sees less of a threat of higher USA import tariffs on Chinese goods, a possibility Mr. Imports rose 11.9 percent to $1.4 billion, slowing from 20.4 percent growth the previous month.

The Ducks have been up 3-2 in a series only to lose Game 6 on the road and Game 7 at home four years in a row.

Then, hell broke loose and the Ducks attacked the Oilers in legendary fashion.

This is illogical, implausible, irrational, crazy, cockeyed and pushing preposterous.

Maybe this series is simply destined for Game 7. They came within seconds of losing all six!

Sekera's undisclosed issue arose during the club's Game 5 tilt against the Ducks on Friday and it appears the issue is more than just a minor bump. Kris Russell came back to the bench looking like he might be headed there as well. Adam Larsson recorded the only assist for his fourth of the post-season. Connor McDavid was out there for 35:43 of ice time. The centre roofed it to give the Oilers a 4-0 lead. However, Getzlaf's shot sailed over the net. In 11 games against the Ducks this season, Draisaitl has 21 points. He opened the series with a four point game here.

Slepychev extended the Oilers' lead to 6-0 in the opening minute of the second period before Rakell got the Ducks on the scoreboard just shy of the 9-minute mark.

Thanks to a hot start that saw five goals in the first period, the Oilers won the all-encompassing Game 6 against the Anaheim Ducks at Rogers Place by a score of 7-1, fittingly forcing Game 7 on Wednesday.

What neither Talbot nor Lucic could express was the shock that engulfed everyone at Honda Center. Ryan Getzlaf and Cam Fowler also scored for the Ducks, who became the first National Hockey League club to rally from three goals down in the final four minutes of regulation to win. And it's all about a botched goaltender interference penalty.
