Now the comebacks are becoming joyously repetitive for the Ducks, and it's becoming clear that no one-goal lead for the opposing team is safe when Teemu Selanne is somewhere on the ice. For the third time in less than three weeks, Selanne sent a game into overtime with a dramatic goal and the Ducks used his tally with 5.4 seconds left Wednesday night to propel its way to 4-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Cam Fowler's score. Fowler finished a two-on-one break, beating goalie Kari Lehtonen after getting a feed from Bobby Ryan as a shocked crowd of 16,021 at American Airlines Center watched in disbelief. It is the Ducks' ninth overtime victory this season and fifth in a row. "Bobby gave me a great pass in overtime," said Fowler, who also beat Calgary with a overtime winner on Feb. 11. "I didn't really have much work left to do. You put the game on those guys' sticks and 99 percent of the time, they're going to come up with a good result for you." The Ducks (41-27-5) won their fourth in a row, three in overtime. They've won nine of 11 and now sit alone in eighth in the Western Conference with a chance to move up tonight with a victory at seventh-place Nashville.
