The Anaheim Ducks pulled off the miracle of all miracles Friday night in Anaheim during Game 5 of their second round Stanley Cup Playoff series against the Edmonton Oilers. Down 3-0 with just over three minutes left in third period, the Ducks rallied (with the help of a controversial failed Oiler goalie interference challenge) to score three goals to send the game into overtime. Anaheim eventually scored in the second overtime frame to give them a 4-3 win and a 3-2 series lead. Here are some tweets from when the Oilers were up big…
#AnaheimDucks finally get on the board, but probably too late. #Oilers #NHL #StanleyCupPlayoffs

My son just changed the channel from the Ducks losing 3-0, to a 10-10 tie in the 11th between TCU & Texas. No paternity test needed.
