It was all about special teams for Anaheim killing penalty after penalty, scoring three man-advantage goals and converting a penalty shot for good measure.
Chris Pronger scored a power-play goal with 1:46 left in overtime to give the Ducks a 4-3 win over the Blue Jackets on Monday night in Columbus, Ohio.
"We battled hard and found a way to win," said Pronger, a 14-year veteran, who earlier added an assist in his 900th career game.
Pronger blasted a point shot that deflected off Columbus defenseman Adam Foote and past a surprised Pascal Leclaire, who finished with 24 saves.
Despite talking about playing more disciplined hockey, the Ducks the league's most penalized team found themselves in the familiar spot of killing penalties. But they survived.
