Selanne starts, ends it

first_img“When it was 4-1 I was thinking, `What’s going on? There’s no intensity, no passion, none whatsoever,” Selanne said. “But it takes 20 guys getting frustrated to get their work boots on and start working. We started battling and the momentum totally changed for us. “Hopefully this is a turning point for us. I almost forgot how good it feels to win a game.” Penner made it 4-3 at 5:11 of the third off a rebound before Pronger tied the game on a disputed goal from the top of the left circle. Television replays showed the Ducks had used a hand pass to move the puck from the crease to Ryan Getzlaf on the wing before he moved the puck to Pronger, but the play was not reviewable. Three of Phoenix’s four goals and a near miss by Anaheim had been reviewed earlier in the game. Anaheim opened a 1-0 lead 3:33 into the game when Selanne scored on a rebound. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
