Three years ago today, being a Ducks fan was a completely different experience. With the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs tied at two games each, Anaheim fought back and took the Edmonton Oilers to double overtime, before Corey Perry netted the game-winner.
On this day in 2017, Corey Perry scored the game-winner in double OT to cap off an incredible comeback victory in Game 5 against the Oilers. Anaheim was trailing 3-0 with just three minutes left but rallied for the 4-3 victory to take a 3-2 series lead #Hockey365 #LetsGoDucks pic.twitter.com/YzcKMQGlQQ— Mike Commito (@mikecommito) May 5, 2020

Arguably one of the worst non goalie interference calls in NHL history, relax.— Daniel Robert (@D_robess) May 5, 2020
I’ve missed you so much. It’s almost as good as pissing them off in real time, but if old wounds is what we get for now, then I’ll take it.
Double OT took a toll
As a Ducks fan from Massachusetts I remember staying up late to watch that game and getting yelled at by my mom for screaming so loud— Derek Waid (@derek_waid) May 5, 2020
Man I remember watching that game and it finished late in the morning for me since I live in Canada and fuck I was plastered . I had to wake up a couple hours later to take my niece to school but it was worth it.— Jrok (@Jrok1390) May 5, 2020

I’m sorry that it’s from a Rangers account, but I was in genuine tears over this tweet. Just incredible stuff.
Okay, fine, this is pretty good too:
