Open Gameday Recap Thread Kings @ Ducks

New, comments




DANIEL:

Three streaks came into this game, but only one survived.  The Kings had a 5 game win streak against the Ducks, they had won their last 9, and the Ducks had a 9 game home winning streak.  The Ducks now have a 10 game home winning streak.  Unfortunately, it came at the expense of Ryan Getzlaf's ankle.  Associated Press reports that Getzlaf sprained his ankle and that x-rays were negative.  

Still, being able to solve the Kings might go a long way to helping the Ducks' confidence considering how the Kings had found so many ways to  beat them.  Jonathan Quick made some phenomenal saves early on, but was eventually solved by Teemu Selanne while the Ducks had a 2-man advantage.  After that Getzlaf and Saku Koivu put the Ducks up by two and Corey Perry answered a power play goal by Anze Kopitar to preserve the 2 goal lead.

An overall solid effort by the Ducks, although I still think we can't trade Wisniewski soon enough. Some of the things he does are just infuriating.  It'll take more games like this to get the Ducks to close that gap between them and the 8 seed in time to make the playoffs.
