ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ryan Strome scored at 1:56 of overtime and the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 on Tuesday night to stop a six-game losing streak.

Strome put a snap shot past goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov after getting a pass from Cam Fowler. Six of the Ducks’ seven wins this season have come in overtime or a shootout.

Adam Henrique, Max Comtois and Brett Leason also scored for Anaheim. John Gibson stopped 34 shots.

Brady Skjei, Sebastian Aho and Jordan Staal had goals for Carolina. Kochetkov made 26 saves.

Carolina has earned a point in each of its last eight road games (4-0-4), marking the fifth road point streak of at least eight games in franchise history. The Hurricanes have already played 17 games away from home this season, the second-most of any team.

Comtois, who missed 11 games due to a lower-body injury, gave the Ducks a 2-1 advantage at 11:13 of the first period. He scored on a wrist shot in front after Jakob Silfverberg forced a turnover behind the net.

Anaheim scored its first goal when Carolina defenseman Brett Pesce took a puck to the throat.

Kevin Shattenkirk shot the puck from near the blue line and it hit Pesce after it deflected off Henrique’s stick. Pesce went down and clutched his throat as Henrique got possession of the loose puck and put a wrist shot past Kochetkov at 3:59 of the first to give Anaheim a 1-0 lead.

Pesce — who played his 500th game for the Hurricanes on Saturday — was taken to the locker room. He returned to the ice later in the period.

Skjei tied it less than two minutes later with a wrist shot into the far top corner of the net that beat Gibson glove side.

With his second-period goal, Aho passed Pat Verbeek for eighth in franchise history with 193 goals. Coincidentally, Verbeek is Anaheim’s general manager. Seth Jarvis extended his point streak to six games with an assist on Aho’s goal. Jarvis has two goals and four assists during that span. Brent Burns has an assist in four straight games after he was credited with the primary assist on Staal’s second-period goal.

The Hurricanes visit the Islanders on Saturday.
