ANAHEIM — The Brantford/Six Nations contributions to the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks combined to sound the comeback charge at 7:43 of the third period in Sunday night’s 4-3 overtime win over the Colorado Avalanche

Brantford’s Adam Henrique scored his 23rd goal since being traded to the Ducks earlier this season, assisted by Six Nations’ Brandon Montour, who now has 23 assists along with nine goals.

With the win, the Ducks moved up to third place in the Pacific Division. Anaheim (41-25-13), which is 3-1-1 in its past five games, is one point ahead of the Los Angeles Kings for third.

“We found a way to tie the hockey game and Kase makes a big play in overtime to get us the extra point,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “These are big points. The next one is going to be bigger.”

The second period opened with Ryan Miller taking over in net for an injured John Gibson, who left with an undisclosed injury sustained in the first period.

Miller was scored on in the first shot he has to face, but that was not a sign of trouble as the game went on. Miller made several game savers, especially late in the game.

“That’s a veteran player there,” Carlyle said of Miller. “He wasn’t rattled by the situation.”

On March 30th, the Ducks used OT to take a tight 2-1 final score over the Kings at the Honda Centre.

Montour earned the primary assist on Rakell’s goal for his 22nd assist of the season. Montour recorded a point in his last two home games (1G,1A) and has three goals and an assist for four points in his last four home games.

The final 2-1 score represented the 17th time in the last 24 contests between the Ducks and Kings where the game was decided by one goal.

Anaheim has three games remaining in the 2017-18 regular season, starting with a tilt against the Minnesota Wild at the Honda Centre on Wednesday, April 4th.

On Friday night the Ducks end their extended homestand against the Dallas Stars before the final game Saturday against the Arizona Coyotes.
