The Ducks’ power play was in a major slump, and 3-on-3 overtime had been a regular nightmare for an otherwise ascendant team. Rickard Rakell put an end to both problems with one wicked swing. Rakell scored a power-play goal off a faceoff 54 seconds into overtime, and surging Anaheim beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 on Tuesday night for its seventh win in nine games.
