Ducks 3, Flyers 2, shootout.

April arrived early in Philadelphia, where the Ducks won in a playoff-like atmosphere over Chris Pronger and the Flyers, 3-2 in a shootout.


Down 2-1, Teemu Selanne netted the game-tying goal with 16 seconds left in regulation, flicking the puck past Ray Emery to send the game to overtime. In the shootout, Selanne scored the only goal as the Ducks won their second straight. Through three games of a four-game road trip, the Ducks (2-1-1) have collected seven of a possible eight points.

Selanne scored the Ducks’ first goal with 6:44 left in the third period to break up Emery’s shutout. Pronger scored once for the Flyers (3-2) in his first game since leaving Anaheim.
