The Ducks tempted fate again and still won.
Renowned for their third-period comebacks during the season and in each of their first two playoff games against the Winnipeg Jets, the Ducks did it again on Monday at MTS Centre. They pulled even with 2:14 left in the third period and grabbed a 5-4 victory when Rickard Rakell deflected a blast by Francois Beauchemin past goaltender Ondrej Pavelec 5 minutes and 12 seconds into sudden-death play.
That gave the Ducks a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series, which will resume at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at MTS Center.
Fans initially stunned into silence by the loss quickly began a chant of “Go Jets go,” a fitting ending...
