Open Gameday Recap Thread Bruins @ Ducks


It wasn't all smiles for the Ducks after they won their fifth strait.  Teemu Selanne took a puck to the face and suffered a broken jaw in the third period.  Still, the Ducks managed to survive a poor defensive night by simply out scoring the opposition.  Goals by Dan Sexton, Matt Beleskey, Ryan Getzlaf and Steve Eminger, yeah I said Eminger, were enough to get past the Bruins' three second period goals.  Eminger's first goal as a Duck came in dramatic fashion as he broke a 3-3 tie midway through the third period.  

Corey Perry had an assist and is working on a 5 game point streak heading into tomorrow's showdown with the Kings.  Saku Koivu continues to be the Ducks MVP this season performing any and every task needed.  he has 10 points in his last 9 games, is killing penalties, and winning clutch faceoffs.  The fact is he's as responsible for some of these wins as Jonas Hiller.  Koivu is making key defensive plays at the end of one goal games, and Hiller is producing some phenomenal saves.  The play is certainly there, but the Ducks aren't in the playoffs yet.  There's plenty of hockey to keep us occupied.  Finally, I learned that my seat is G 10 and not G 11, Long Live the Magumbo!!!
