Ducks 3, Oilers 2 (OT)

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -Ryan Getzlaf scored 2:19 into overtime after teammate Chris Kunitz tied the score with 17 seconds left in the third period, and the Anaheim Ducks rallied past the Oilers 3-2 Tuesday night in Chris Pronger's return to Edmonton.

Pronger, who led the Oilers to the Stanley Cup finals last season, was booed every time he touched the puck. He assisted on Teemu Selanne's power-play goal in the second period.

Marty Reasoner and Ryan Smyth scored for Edmonton, which had won five straight.

The Oilers appeared to have this one in hand, too, but the Ducks pulled goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere for an extra attacker and scored late in the third. Kunitz grabbed the puck from a goalmouth scramble and backhanded it past Dwayne Roloson.

It was the second time this season the Oilers lost to Anaheim. Pronger had three assists in the previous matchup, a 6-2 Ducks victory on Oct. 25.

Anaheim captain Scott Niedermayer played in his 1,000th NHL game and got a rousing cheer from fans when the milestone was announced.

Reasoner opened the scoring almost eight minutes into the first period. After linemate Raffi Torres dug the puck out of the corner, Reasoner fired a wrist shot from a bad angle over Giguere's shoulder.

Edmonton made it 2-0 early in the second when Smyth dug the puck out from behind the net and threw it out front to Fernando Pisani, who backhanded it along the ice through a thicket of players, off Smyth's skate and past Giguere.

When the anti-Pronger boos began to trail off midway through the second period, it was Pronger who reignited them. With the Ducks on a power play, he fired a wrist shot from the top of the right faceoff circle that Selanne, standing at the crease, tipped past Roloson to make it 2-1.

In the second period, fans roared as Brad Winchester fought with Anaheim's Sean O'Donnell. Minutes later, Matt Greene of the Oilers and Shane O'Brien went at it.
