The entire tenor of the game changed, however, when halfway through the 3rd period, Bobby Ryan powered the puck into the zone on the wing and found his playmaker, Ryan Getzlaf, joining the play. Getzlaf, in turn, outwaited the defenders and Luongo before threading a pass to Perry on the doorstep. A little over a minute later, Bobby Ryan again took the puck, this time jumping off the bench to poke it off the stick of an advancing Sedin (I can't be bothered to discern which one) and again onto the tape of his playmaker Getzlaf, who circled the puck into the zone with Perry and a late-joining Bobby Ryan, who received the centering pass and deposited it in Luongo's five hole. Getzlaf would finish with four points on the night.
