After what was a promising first period that saw Anaheim take a lead with all four lines seemingly clicking, Randy Carlyle's men seemingly ran out of steam and ran out of answers against a fast-paced Golden Knights team.
How do you explain these losses? New pieces gelling? Ryan Kesler fitting back in? Out-played? Out-coached? It's tough to explain, especially with how good everyone looked in the opening frame.
We took a crack at explaining it all, while also answering listener questions. Which of Jacob Larsson or Marcus Pettersson makes the team first? Does Nick Ritchie belong in the lineup? We also give an update on how Ducks' prospects like Max Jones, Sam Steel, Josh Mahura, and Olle Eriksson-Ek are performing at the World Juniors.
