Beleskey edges Ducks in front

Having lost the two previous games against the Blackhawks, Anaheim triumphed after just 45 seconds in the extra period at the Honda Center thanks to Matt Beleskey’s 16-foot wrist-shot.

Cam Fowler, Ryan Kesler and Sami Vatanen hit the back of the net in the opening period for the Ducks, while second-period goals from Teuvo Teravainen and Brent Seabrook reduced the deficit.

Patrick Maroon’s 15th-minute tip-in in the third stanza looked to have put the home side in control but a late brace from Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews forced overtime where Ryan Kesler and Jakob Silfverberg set up Beleskey.
