Ryan Getzlaf felt the Anaheim Ducks had earned the right to get a good break.
When his attempted pass through the high slot ricocheted off a defenseman's skate and went in for the tiebreaking goal, Getzlaf knew only one word could describe it: "Lucky."
"We worked hard for it," Getzlaf immediately added. "Our guys worked hard for that faceoff, to get the puck back, and then sometimes luck is on your side."
Getzlaf scored the tiebreaking power-play goal with 4:46 to play on a bizarre deflection off Lance Bouma's skate, and the Ducks beat the Flames 3-2 Saturday night to take a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series.
