The Ducks scored a late goal Tuesday night to capture the 4-3 victory over the Boston Bruins. With the loss, Boston moves to 32-18-4 on the year.
Rickard Rakell picked up a rebound from Ryan Getzlaf’s slapper from the point to put Anaheim up early, six and a half minutes in. The Bruins would tie it up two minutes later though, as Brandon Carlo threw one unto the net that was redirected through the five-hole by Nick Foligno to tie it up.
A defensive-zone turnover by Brad Marchand put the Ducks back up in front though, as he tried to stickhandle his way through but it was stolen by Jakob Silfverberg, who found Cam Fowler in the slot. Isac Lundestrom would collect Fowler’s rebound to make it 2-1 with two minutes left in the first.
A minute later, with just a minute left in the first Troy Terry, made a cross-ice pass to Adam Henrique who wristed one past Linus Ullmark to make it 3-1.
Carlo threw one on net that fell out of John Gibson’s glove and squeaked through the five-hole to cut the deficit to one. Then, two minutes into the third, on a zone entry, David Pastrnak one-timed a Taylor Hall pass past Gibson to tie it up.
But, after Charlie McAvoy was called for hooking with under a minute left in the period, Trevor Zegras one-timed one past Ullmark with just 20 seconds left for the game-winner.
The final two games of Boston’s six-game road trip are coming up, as the Bruins take on the Golden Knights Thursday, at 9:00 p.m. ET, before wrappung it up in Columbus Saturday, at 7:00 p.m. ET. Boston will have a three-game homestand following that.
