Hockey-Reference Numbers For Nerds

While the last time Anaheim and Los Angeles met the teams combined for 80 minutes in penalties, with the Ducks taking 44 PIM and the Kings sitting for 36 PIM, it was only the 9th most cumulative infraction time between the teams in a game over the history of the Freeway Faceoff. Back on January 28, 2006, the Mighty Ducks and LA combined for 121 PIM in a 6-2 romp by Anaheim at STAPLES Center. The longest rap sheets in the game belonged to the Mighty Ducks' Todd Fedoruk sitting for 19 minutes, and the Kings' Jeff Cowan whistled for 16 minutes. Six of the game's eight tallies came on the power play, with Anaheim jumping out to a 6-1 lead 27:35 into the game thanks to three-point performances by Perry (two goals, one assist), Scott Niedermayer (one goal, two assists), and Andy McDonald (three assists).

The highest individual penalty totals for a Freeway Faceoff game go to 1996-97 Mighty Duck Peter LeBoutillier, who racked up 30 minutes in a 3-1 loss at the Great Western Forum, while a pair of Kings share the 'honor'. Ray Ferraro was whistled for 22 PIM in a 4-1 Mighty Duck win in Anaheim's 96-97 home finale, and Brad Norton equalled that infraction total in Anaheim's 6-3 home win during the 2003-04 season. The 15 minutes that both Bieksa and Andreoff took in the most recent meeting rank and tied for 12th and 7th for their respective franchises' sides in a single game the Freeway Faceoff.
