Open Gameday Recap Thread Ducks @ Avalanche


The Ducks tapped into their Disney roots and did a little magic in order to leave Colorado with a win and improve their record to 5-1-3 in their last 9.  Craig Anderson was amazing for two periods turning away 28 shots.  Jonas Hiller managed to keep pace and gave up only two goals, which allowed the Ducks to fight their way back and score 4 goals in the final 8 minutes. 

Randy Carlyle proved he reads the blog, because in the third period he took Calder off the top line and put Bobby Ryan back on it.  The line connected for the Ducks first goal when Bobby Ryan was in the crease and prevented Craig Anderson from getting across to stop a Scott Niedermayer shot.  Big Sexy, A.K.A. Dan Sexton, continued his clutch ways  by depositing the game tying goal, which was assisted by new line mate Matt Beleskey.  Beleskey looked very comfortable along side Koivu and Sexton and might give the Ducks more scoring depth by letting Carlyle reunite the RPG line, which some have said is one of the most dominant in the league.  The RPG line certainly looked dominant on the game winning goal when Perry took a feed from Ryan, charged the net, and then Getzlaf put in the rebound.

The Ducks keep finding ways to win. Let's hope it continues, and the Ducks can continue to fly as high as they did tonight.
