The L.A. Area, Anaheim Ducks Almost Unprecedented ‘Offs Win And More (Exactly) 45 Years “Stuff”

May 6, 2017

Yesterday, Friday May 5th, a day the L.A. area, Anaheim Ducks staged an almost unprecedented comeback victory at home, vs the Edmonton Oilers, scoring three goals to force overtime after pulling net minder Gibson and winning (4-3) on Corey Perry’s goal in the second overtime, I remember an L.A. area team win, exactly 45 years earlier.

On May 5, 1972, Jim McMillian took over in the overtime leading the Los Angeles Lakers to a game 4 win at Madison Square Garden vs the New York Knicks that gave them a (3-1) Finals Series lead, in a series they clinched two nights later.

Speaking of 45 years later and vs an NHL team based in Canada (they just seem unable to win), the Rangers on the exact anniversary of a game 3/1972 finals victory, won (4-1) for the second straight game and not only squared their “Qtr” vs the Ottawa Senators but are bigger series faves now than they were before the series started, despite “Ott” having this afternoon’s #5 and a potential game 7 at home.

 

Corey Perry’s goal in the second overtime last night lifted “An” (4-3) over Edmonton in game 5 and into a (3-2) “Qtrs” lead.

The Ducks (Anaheim or “An”) were the second team in NHL annals to team score as many as 3 goals to even force overtime with less than 4 minutes remaining in the tilt.

Perry with Ryan Getzlaf getting an assist won it.
