Ducks rally in the third to beat Bruins

The Ducks won their fifth straight Wednesday night against the Bruins, thanks to Jonas Hiller. The Swiss tender earned his fourth straight win in as many starts, going 4-0 and a 1.81 GAA in that stretch. “Our goaltender played well,” said Ryan Getzlaf, who tied the game at 3-3 early in the third period.

The Ducks came back from one goal deficits twice on Wednesday, which is not an easy task against a tight defensive team like the Bruins. After Getzlaf scored his 100th career goal to tie the game, Steve Eminger, an unsung hero, gave the Ducks the game winner with a late third period goal.

The win did not come at an easy price. Teemu Selanne took a deflected point shot from Ryan Whitney to the face. He is reported to have a broken jaw and is scheduled to have surgery on Thursday. Coach Carlyle said that he is not sure when the veteran sniper will be back, saying that he will be: “unavailable for a number of days, weeks here going forward.”

The current five game winning streak leaves the Ducks in 12th place but only 4 points back of the 8th place Kings, who they play on Thursday night at the Staples Center.
