In a duel of inconsistent teams, the Ducks proved themselves more inconsistent, dropping tonight's game to the OIlers 4-2. Anaheim managed two quick scores after giving away a two-goal lead but couldn't keep up with several bursts of Edmonton speed until an attack sequence by Ales Hemsky produced the gamewinner. Corey Perry would add a 200 foot own goal into an empty net in the closing seconds.
The lines were jumbled, including the returns of Dan Sexton and Andy Sutton, as well as the NHL debut of Brandon McMillan. Anaheim's next game is Friday afternoon against the Blackhawks, a contest in which the Ducks will unveil their new third jerseys.
