TORONTO -- The Anaheim Ducks clinched a playoff spot for the fourth consecutive season in their 6-5 overtime loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.
The Ducks entered the game needing only one standings point to reach the postseason and got it when they rallied from a 4-1 deficit to force the extra period.
Nazem Kadri had two goals and two assists, including the overtime winner, for Toronto.
The Maple Leafs scored three power-play goals against the NHL's top penalty kill to win their fifth in the past six games.
Toronto allowed four unanswered goals before rallying to even the score at 5-5 on Connor Brown's first NHL goal before Kadri sealed it 41 seconds into extra time.
