Previous Game: Ducks Unleash 51 Shots in 4-3 OT Loss to Oilers
EDMONTON -- The Anaheim Ducks had a chance to take back the lead in the Pacific Division.

The Oilers let them inch closer, but stopped them short of their goal.

Andrew Ference scored 3:51 into overtime after Ben Scrivens stopped 48 shots to give the Edmonton Oilers a 4-3 victory against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

With the teams playing 3-on-3 in OT, Ference picked off a pass at center ice, raced into the Anaheim zone, used Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf as a screen and beat Jonas Hiller with a blast from the high slot for the win.

Scrivens survived a barrage of 51 shots, including seven in overtime, to help the Oilers end a three-game losing streak.

The single point left the Ducks (47-18-8) one behind the San Jose Sharks in the race for first place in the Pacific Division. Anaheim has two games in hand.

"You have a chance to put these teams away and you don’t, and when that happens, you’re not going to get what you want," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said after the loss.

Sam Gagner, Jordan Eberle and Oscar Klefbom, with his first NHL goal, also scored for the Oilers. Nick Bonino, Patrick Maroon and Mathieu Perreault scored for Anaheim, with Perreault's goal at 15:30 of the third period forcing overtime. Hiller stopped 19 shots.

Bonino opened the scoring 35 seconds into the game on the first shot of the night. He took a pass from Getzlaf in front and snapped a shot over the shoulder of Scrivens.

Gagner tied the game at 4:43 with the 100th goal of his career. He took a pass from David Perron, went in on Hiller and lifted a backhand over the goaltender, giving the Oilers a goal on their first shot of the game.

The Ducks had a number of quality chances to take the lead in the second period, but were unable to beat Scrivens, who got a little help from the post and his teammates.

Taylor Hall was first to a puck that squeezed through Scrivens, just in time to knock it off the goal line. Just over three minutes later, Ducks left wing Matt Beleskey fired a shot off the post.

Despite their territorial advantage in the period, the Ducks found themselves down 2-1 after Eberle took a pass from Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in front and snapped a shot past Hiller at 10:22.

The Ducks continued to press and came close to tying the game as Jakob Silfverberg was able to reach a rebound in front of an open net. Scrivens, however, dove across his crease and knocked Silfverberg's shot away with his goal stick. The save was reminiscent of the one made by former Oilers goaltender Curtis Joseph in the 1997 first-round playoff upset against the Dallas Stars. Joseph was in attendance Friday, honored by the Oilers before the game for his time in Edmonton.

"He had a great game, but I think we have to bear down more and put those chances in," Silfverberg said. "I had a great chance. We have to make sure that puck goes in the net.”

Anaheim did tie the game at 15:23 of the second, when Maroon had a rebound bounce towards him and was able to bat it past Scrivens.

Klefbom put the Oilers up 3-2 at 8:26 of the third period, jumping into the play and firing a shot past Hiller from the slot. Klefbom was called up by the Oilers from their AHL affiliate in Oklahoma City on March 5.

Perreault tied the game with 4:30 left in regulation when he took a pass from Maroon in front, got a fortunate deflection off Hall's stick and lifted the puck over Scrivens.

In overtime, Anaheim had a rare 5-on-3 power play but could not take advantage.

Ference took a hooking penalty to give the Ducks a 4-on-3 advantage, and with 21 seconds left in that penalty, Jeff Petry was sent off for delay of game after he shot the puck over the glass. The Oilers killed off both penalties.

The Ducks continue their three-game Western Canada trip against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.
