ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ryan Strome scored on a pass from Trevor Zegras with 49 seconds left in overtime and the Anaheim Ducks snapped a three-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night.

John Klingberg scored his first goal for his new team with 46 seconds left in regulation to force overtime for the Ducks, who then made an opportunistic scoring play to earn only their fifth victory of the season — still none in regulation.

After a backhand clearing attempt by Detroit’s Tyler Bertuzzi accidentally hit Strome in front of the net, Zegras and Strome executed a back-and-forth passing game that ended with Strome shoving home his fifth goal of the season.

“Sometimes in 3-on-3, you’ve got to dive-bomb them and see if you can get a turnover, and it just hit my glove,” Strome said. “We deserved it, though. For all the stuff we’ve dealt with for the last little while, I thought we brought a good effort tonight.”

Mason McTavish scored a rare power-play goal for the Ducks, and John Gibson stopped 31 shots in only his third victory. Anaheim is still tied for the fewest points in the NHL, but its final two performances on this four-game homestand showed significant steps forward for a young, rebuilding team.

“In every aspect of our game, I just thought we were solid,” Ducks coach Dallas Eakins said. “It wasn’t that we were great. We weren’t bad at all. It was just a really solid game, and it was certainly a building block.”

Jonatan Berggren got his first NHL goal and Michael Rasmussen also scored for the Red Wings, who have lost four straight.

Ville Husso made 27 saves on the second stop of a four-game trip for Detroit, which got a pregame boost when Bertuzzi returned from a one-month absence with an upper-body injury that kept him out for 13 games. But Bertuzzi’s clearing mistake was the last of several late-game errors.

“We had a really good start to the season, and we’ve been competitive in this league, because we take risk out of our game,” coach Derek Lalonde said. “Unfortunately, a couple of times throughout that third (period) and especially in overtime, we got away from that.”

Berggren capitalized on a power play when a deflection rolled right to him in the first period. The 22-year-old Swedish rookie scored his first goal in his third career game.

McTavish answered with a quick reaction to a rebound in the slot. His goal was just the fifth all season on the power play for the Ducks, who have the worst man-advantage numbers in the league.

Rasmussen put the Wings ahead in the second period when he circled the net, fought off two Ducks defenders and unleashed a shot while skating away from the net.

Despite the discipline lapses that bothered Lalonde, Anaheim couldn’t score on a 5-on-3 advantage in the third or on two lengthy ensuing power plays.

Klingberg finally tied it with Gibson pulled for an extra attacker, flinging in a shot through traffic from the blue line. The Anaheim newcomer’s goal was only the second scored by a Ducks defenseman all season long.
