- Teemu Selanne, Ducks, scored 11:57 into overtime to lift Anaheim to a 2-1 comeback win over Detroit and a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference finals.
Detroit was within a minute of beating Anaheim in regulation on Sunday, but Scott Niedermayer's deflected shot fluttered over Dominik Hasek's glove on a power play to tie the score at 1 with 47.3 seconds left. The Ducks went on to win 2-1 in overtime.
Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 36 shots, helping Anaheim beat Detroit 2-1 on Sunday to take a 3-2 series lead in the Western Conference finals. Giguere improved to 12-1 after regulation in the playoffs.
ONE TO GO
Anaheim can advance to its second Stanley Cup finals appearance with a win at home Tuesday night after a 2-1 overtime win over the Red Wings on Sunday. If Game 7 is necessary, it will be played Thursday night in Detroit. Eastern Conference champion Ottawa, which eliminated Buffalo on Saturday, awaits the winner.
``That's hockey. But when that break goes our way, we don't overanalyze that. We just take the break. When it goes against you, I don't think you want to spend a whole lot of time analyzing that.'' - Detroit coach Mike Babcock after Anaheim's 2-1 overtime win over the Red Wings on Sunday. The Ducks tied the score at 1 with 47.3 seconds left in regulation on a goal that deflected off Detroit defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom's stick.
