Look at what Teemu Selänne has done in the past six weeks -- this is incredible. Four late game-tying goals, all followed by Ducks victories in overtime. Wins over Calgary (twice) and Dallas (twice) -- the clubs immediately behind them in the playoff race. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Selänne is the first player in NHL history to score four game-tying goals in the final 3:00 of the third period in one season. And all in a six-week period!
Selänne is real finnish legend, he is getting old but still plays like a champ!
