March 3, 2012 at 12:44 AM   |   Comments

ANAHEIM, Calif., March 3 (UPI) -- Ryan Getzlaf scored the tiebreaking goal with 46 seconds remaining in regulation Friday, bringing the Anaheim Ducks a 3-2 win over Calgary.

With both teams needing victories to make a run at the playoffs, Alex Tanguay scored for the Flames 4:27 into the third period to create a 2-2 tie. Overtime was looming and both sides appeared set to pick up at least one point when Getzlaf fired a slap shot past backup goaltender Leland Irving.

Anaheim reached 66 points for the season, three behind Calgary but seven behind San Jose and Dallas for the final playoff position.

Curtis Glencross opened the scoring for Calgary 3:06 into the game but Bobby Ryan tied it less than 3 minutes later.

The Ducks took a 2-1 advantage through two periods on a goal from Corey Perry, his 31st of the season.

Irving stopped 35-of-38 shots. Jonas Hiller made 27 saves in the win.
