Just 36 seconds later, Ryan came away with a loose puck on the doorstep and lifted it over the Oilers starter for his 29th goal of the season.
Edmonton tied it with six minutes remaining in the third period. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins fed a pass to Eberle and he deked out Deslauriers before flipping in a backhander for his 34th of the year, eventually sending the game to overtime.
Both teams conclude their seasons on Saturday as the Oilers travel to Vancouver to play the Canucks and the Ducks are in Calgary.
NOTES: It was the final of four meetings between the two teams and second in a five-day span. The Ducks won the first two before Edmonton came away with a 2-1 win on Sunday in Anaheim... The Oilers and Ducks have both long been out of the playoff picture this season. Edmonton will miss the playoffs for the sixth straight year since losing out in Game 7 of the 2006 Stanley Cup finals. Anaheim will miss the post-season for the second time in the last three years ... Ducks F Teemu Selanne entered the game with seven goals and seven assists during a nine-game point streak against Edmonton.
