Ducks somehow score three with net empty to force OT (Video)

The most normal thing about the Anaheim Ducks’ almost unthinkable drive to overtime in Game 5 was that Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry were heavily involved.

(Cam Fowler was great, too.)

The Edmonton Oilers generated a 3-0 lead through the first two periods of the contest, and for most of the night, it seemed like that would be enough.

Getzlaf scored 16:44 into the third period, then Cam Fowler scored 17:19 in. The wildest was the last, as Rickard Rakell got the birthday gift of a tying goal with just 15 seconds left.

That Rakell goal also survived goalie interference, a bonus birthday gift:

The Ducks had their net empty the entire time.
