Ryan Getzlaf scored twice and set up two other goals, including Jacob Silfverberg’s overtime winner as the Anaheim Ducks beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-3 to even their series at two games apiece. The series will head back to Anaheim for Game 5 on Friday.

In Pittsburgh, the Penguins edged the Washington Capitals 3-2 to take a three to one series lead on the Presidents’ Trophy winners, who out-shot the home team by a 38-18 margin. Justin Schultz scored the go-ahead goal midway through the second period and Marc-Andre Fleury made 36 saves.

In tonight’s only Stanley Cup playoff game, the New York Rangers will host the Ottawa Senators (MBCSN 7:30 pm) at Madison Square Garden. The Senators lead the series two games to one.

In Florida Panthers-related news, Sam Brittain made 40 saves, but it wasn’t enough as the Brampton Beast avoided elimination by squeaking past the Manchester Monarchs, by a 2-1 count, last night in Manchester. Monarchs defenseman Thomas Schemitsch finished the game with two shots on goal and an even rating. Game 6 and Game 7 (if necessary) will be in Brampton.
