Open Gameday Recap Thread Ducks @ Lightning


Well, the Ducks got two points against the Lightning.  That makes them 2-3-0 on the road trip.  Although they've won two shootouts which is kind of like winning two games except you don't actually beat the team you're playing at anything but a skills competition.  Still, Conference bottom dwellers can't be choosers.  The Ducks managed only one goal for the third strait game. It came on the power play from James Wisniewski, who coincidentally kept his shootout percentage at a phenomenal 1.00 by scoring the game winning shootout goal.  For those playing the home game, that makes Wisniewski the most influential offensive player of the game.  

However, not to be outdone was Jonas Hiller.  His 30 saves gave Wisniewksi the opportunity to be the hero.  The Lightning's only goal came on a poorly played 2 on 1.  Whitney didn't get down to stop the cross ice pass.  Hiller got over, but couldn't close the pads in time to deny Martin St. Louis.  The win ended Tampa Bay's three game winning streak but didn't help the Ducks pick up any ground in the playoff race as both Dallas and Detroit picked up victories.
