POSTGAME NOTES
Anaheim 5 vs. Winnipeg 4 OT
Mar. 31, 2014
Honda Center
49-18-8, 106 Standings Points

Anaheim's win tonight marked the largest comeback in club history. The Ducks had never before won a game when trailing by more than three goals. The previous record was three goals behind (Seven times, last Jan. 23, 2010 @ STL; trailed 3-0 at 5:13 of the third, won 4-3 in SO).

The Ducks have points in five straight (4-0-1) and are 6-2-1 in their last nine contests, 21-10-3 in their last 34 games and 34-12-5 in their last 51 contests.

This remains Anaheim’s best season (now through 75 games), topping the previous mark of 44-19-12 for 100 points in 2006-07. This is also the most wins the Ducks have had at home (26, previously: 25, 2007-08) and on the road (23, previously: 20, three time; last 2010-11) at this point of the season in club history.

With 242 goals scored this season, the Ducks have scored the most goals through 75 games in club history.

Stephane Robidas scored his third career OT goal, first since Dec. 4, 2010 vs. MIN (w/DAL). It is his first goal of the season and first as a Duck. Also, this marks his first GWG (1-0=1) since Feb. 9, 2012 @ CBJ (w/DAL).

Ryan Getzlaf logged 1-1=2 points, including assisting on Perry’s game-tying goal with 22 seconds left in the third period. Getzlaf ranks second in the NHL with 31-52=83 points.

Corey Perry scored his 39th goal of the season, second most in the NHL.

With his first career multi-assist game (0-2=2), Patrick Maroon continued his career-long five-game point/assist streak (2-6=8).

With a third-period assist, Mathieu Perreault extended his point streak to a career-high nine straight games (6-4=10).

Daniel Winnik recorded his 100th career assist on Hampus Lindholm’s third-period goal. Winnik has a career-high 22 assists on the season (previously 15, three times; last 2010-11 w/COL).

Tonight’s attendance was 17,174, a sellout. Tonight marked Anaheim’s ninth consecutive sellout, continuing their longest streak of the season (previously six, Dec. 28-Jan. 12).

POSTGAME QUOTES

ANAHEIM DUCKS

Stephane Robidas
On the mindset heading into overtime

You’re down 4-0 and you come back, 4-4. Now the pressure is on the other team because they gave up a lead like that. We just tried to play our game. I got lucky and it went in.

On the first period
It wasn’t pretty. They were all over us. You have to give them credit because they came out hard. We didn’t really show up in the first period. It’s a lesson learned. We need to move on now.

Ryan Getzlaf
On tonight’s game

We beared down and did what we needed to do in the third period. That’s about all we can take out of this one. It was a character win. We were able to come back and play the way we needed to play. We’ll watch that video and learn from it. Those are two big points for us.

On his goal jump-starting the third-period comeback
When our power play gets going, it really helps push this group. All I had to do was shoot into the open net. Pat Maroon made a great play down that side.

Corey Perry
On his game-tying goal with 22.7 seconds remaining in regulation

If I’m going to net and crashing around the blue paint, that’s where I’m effective. If I’m not doing that, I’m not playing my game. I’m not going to score from the top of the circles too often. It’s got to be in tight.

On what this win means for this team
We didn’t have a great start. Being down 4-0 halfway through the game, it’s tough to overcome. But we said in here, if we keep pushing and playing that style we established in the second half of the second period, no team can play with us. That’s the way we’ve got to keep playing.

Head coach Bruce Boudreau
On tonight’s game

When you always believe you can win, you’re never out of the game. I think that was what happened tonight. We were so vastly outplayed in the first 35 minutes of the game. But when [Nick] Bonino scored and Freddie [Andersen] made the big save 20 seconds later, we thought if we could get another one, you never know.

On Stephane Robidas
[Ondrej Pavelec] was giving up big rebounds in the third period, so we knew that if we would just shoot the puck, eventually we may get one. Hampus [Lindholm] got a great rebound goal. It was exciting. Hopefully this catapults us into not letting anybody off the mat.

WINNIPEG JETS

Mark Stuart
On the emotion after game

It’s frustrating. There is not a whole lot to say right now after a game like that. It’s shock. I don’t have a whole lot for you.

On Anaheim
You have to give them credit but we didn’t push quite as hard in the third. You saw it with the shots, they pushed hard. They had over 20 shots in the third.

Michael Frolik
On tonight's loss

Obviously, it’s frustrating. We played a very good game. The start was perfect, what we were looking for. It’s frustrating.

On “Is this a learning experience?”
I think you want to learn from it but most of the games are going pretty quick. Tonight is going to be tough but when you wake up tomorrow you forget about it and refocus yourself to make sure we are ready for the next one.

Head coach Paul Maurice
On Anaheim’s comeback

You’re just awfully disappointed because you liked so much of what you saw and then to have it go away from you like that. It’s just frustrating. It’s tough to lose a game like that.

On the third period
If you are looking for a primary indicator there, we stopped making plays with the puck. I thought we moved the puck through two periods as well as we have. And then we just stopped making those passes. We threw a lot of pucks back and away. You just can’t give that team the opportunities to counter on you like that.
