AHL grads have Ducks one win away

OTTAWA (CP) – Andy McDonald scored two goals and assisted on Dustin Penner‘s winner in the third period as the Anaheim Ducks moved within a win of the Stanley Cup with a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Monday night.

McDonald’s goals came a minute apart midway through the second frame and he then started the play that led to Penner’s marker on a 2-on-1 with Teemu Selanne at 4:07 of the third.

McDonald, who played in the AHL from 2000-02, has four goals in the series so far. Penner was a 2006 Second Team AHL All-Star for Portland.

Anaheim leads the best-of-seven final 3-1 and can claim its first Stanley Cup championship with a victory in Game 5 at home Wednesday night.

Joe DiPenta, a 2002 Calder Cup champion with Chicago, and 2007 AHL All-Star Joe Motzko were in the lineup for Anaheim.
