CHICAGO — Ryan Getzlaf scored a power-play goal at 2:16 of overtime, lifting the Anaheim Ducks to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Cam Fowler's shot was stopped by Corey Crawford, but Getzlaf poked the rebound under the sliding goaltender. Getzlaf's sixth goal of the season came with Andrew Shaw serving a bench minor for too many men on the ice.

Jakob Silfverberg and David Perron scored in the third period for Anaheim, which dropped the first two games of the season series against Chicago in overtime. Frederik Anderson made five saves after John Gibson departed after two periods with an upper-body injury.

Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa left with a left leg injury in the second period of Chicago's third consecutive loss. The defending Stanley Cup champions dropped to 4-6 since their franchise-record 12-game win streak.

Brent Seabrook had two goals for Chicago, which eliminated Anaheim in the Western Conference finals last May. Crawford had 41 saves.

Hossa went down in the corner after he was hit by Ducks defenseman Hampus Lindholm on his lower left leg with about 5½ minutes left in the second. The 37-year-old winger, sitting on 496 career goals, had to be helped off the ice and went straight to the locker room.

Richard Panik then replaced Hossa on Chicago's top line and drew a hooking penalty on Nate Thompson, leading to Seabrook's ninth goal of the season. The defenseman's first shot was stopped by Gibson but he drove the rebound under the goaltender's left arm at 15:28.

Gibson made 16 saves before he was replaced by Andersen at the start of the third.

Anaheim tied it at 1 when Silfverberg poked home a rebound at 4:56 for his seventh of the season. Silfverberg has four goals and nine assists in his last 15 games after a slow start to the season.

The Ducks kept up the pressure, and Ryan Getzlaf found Perron for the tiebreaking goal at 8:38. Perron turned around and snapped a shot under Crawford's left arm for his ninth on the year.

But Seabrook tied it again with another big drive at 12:01 of the third. It was his career-best 10th of the season.
