This Week in Ducks History:
Nov. 13, 2006
Acquired a third-round draft choice in either the 2007 or 2008 NHL Entry Draft and the option of exchanging its fourth-round selection for the Boston Bruins fourth-round selection in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft from the Boston Bruins in exchange for LW Stanislav Chistov .
Acquired a fourth-round draft choice in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft and the conditional right to exchange fifth-round selections with Philadelphia in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft from Philadelphia in exchange for LW Todd Fedoruk.
Acquired RW George Parros and the option to exchange third-round selections with Colorado in the 2007 Entry Draft from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for a second-round draft pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft (previously acquired from Atlanta for Vitaly Vishnevski).

Ryan Getzlaf's franchise record 10 game assist streak ends as he records a goal and three assists in a 7-4 loss in Detroit. Oddly enough, Corey Perry would tie that record with a streak that began the night before in a 3-2 shootout loss at Columbus. It's almost as if those guys feed off of each other or something.

Lost to Philadelphia, 7-4, tying a record for most goals allowed in a period (5), most assists by an opposing team in a period (obscure) and most points by an opposing team in a period (obviously). I specifically remember watching this game because it was such a role reversal. The Ducks were one point behind Buffalo for the best record in the league and had just come off their 16 game "unbeaten" (12-0-4) streak to start the season, while Philly was tied with Phoenix for the worst record in the league with only 10 standings points, to the Ducks' 30.
Looking back, it was kind of a convergence of circumstances. It does make some sense that they would have a letdown after such a streak, not to mention the Ducks have always had the tendency to play down to their opponent and it was the first game after Burkie's Nov 13th shopping spree.
