ANAHEIM, Calif. - Scott Niedermayer scored a power-play goal 52 seconds into overtime as the Anaheim Ducks beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Thursday night after blowing a three-goal lead.

Corey Perry extended his career-best point streak to 13 games with a power-play goal and two assists for the Ducks.

Ryan Malone was sent off for cross-checking just 11 seconds into overtime, and Niedermayer got a drop pass from Ryan Getzlaf in the high slot before snapping off a 45-footer that beat Mike Smith high to the glove side. The goal was the second this season for the Ducks' captain.

Getzlaf and Teemu Selanne each had a goal and two assists for the Ducks, who began a seven-game homestand following a 5-2 loss Monday night in Pittsburgh.
