Palmieri scores in OT for Ducks' 4-3 win

--

WINNIPEG - All Kyle Palmieri needed was a glance at the net.

Palmieri scored past Ondrej Pavelec 53 seconds into overtime to lift the Anaheim Ducks over the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 on Sunday afternoon

"I took a quick look at the net and saw him down on his post so I just tried to get it up and I was lucky enough to put it up inside the bar," Palmieri said. "I knew I could try and at least have him make a save. It was me just putting it on net."

Ryan Getzlaf added three helpers for Anaheim (18-6-5), including the assist on Palmieri's winner, to extend his point streak to five games. Getzlaf has two goals and eight assists during his current streak.

Getzlaf said that Anaheim's resiliency all year has been a key to their success.

"Our group has showed that all year, that we've been able to play through things and keep on playing," Getzlaf said. "Good or bad, one thing we've done is play a lot of overtime games this year so we know the situation we are in.

"We never want to let a team back in it like that, we've got to learn to close those out a little better. But just showing that resilience and getting the two points is big."

Rene Bourque scored his first of the year for the Ducks and Jakob Silfverberg and Ryan Kesler had goals as well.

Jacob Trouba, Dustin Byfuglien and Andrew Ladd replied for Winnipeg (14-9-5). Two of the Jets' three goals came on the power play. Pavelec made 21 saves.

"It was a hard-fought game, both goalies played well and you have to take the positives out of it," Trouba said.

"It's getting better," Mathieu Perreault said of Winnipeg's power play. "We've been talking about it so much and been working on it a lot and it's finally starting to going in for us. We have seen some good things and we want to keep working on it."

Anaheim has won four straight. The loss snaps the Jets' two-game win streak. Winnipeg earned points in its last six games, going 4-0-2 dating back to Oct. 26.

Goalie Frederik Andersen made 27 saves in his 15th consecutive start for the Ducks. …
