Open Gameday Recap Thread Flames @ Ducks




The Ducks have recently decided that they do not want to spend the entire season in the Western Conference cellar. They gave up a late goal to Jarome Iginla that forced overtime, but eventually won in a shootout. The goal came in the last twenty seconds of the third period and could have been a back breaker for the struggling Ducks, but Teemu Selanne came through in the shootout to preserve the two points. Corey Perry stretched his point streak to an impressive 15 games, the second longest streak in Ducks history. However, the star of the night was J.S. Giguere. He stopped 41 shots, including ten in the first ten minutes of the third period. Giguere has been fiercly fighting for his #1 job since he returned from injury and Carlyle’s “win and you’re in” philosophy has probably earned him a spot between the pipes when the Ducks take on the Carolina Hurricanes Wednesday. If this keeps up, the Ducks will have a very tough decision come trade deadline time.
