Open Gameday Recap Thread Ducks @ Predators

New, comments


Saku Koivu scored Anaheim's first goal of the season and gave Cam Fowler the first assist of his NHL career, but the Ducks were felled by the Nashville Predators 4-1.  Jonas Hiller saw 49 shots, and 21 in the 3rd period alone, in a game that seemed to be paced out of the Ducks' reach after some early back and forth and near-miss strikes on the crossbar.  

On defense, Brookbank and Mikkelson played the majority of Anaheim's penalty kill time, while Visnovsky and Fowler logged the most even strength time in a group that comprises the entirety of the Ducks remaining healthy defenders after Andy Sutton left the season opener with a broken thumb.  Festerling was called up but did not play.  The Ducks will have tomorrow off before playing Monday morning in St. Louis.
