Howard and Detroit Do In Ducks

The Ducks played a good game, but it wasn’t good enough against the Detroit Red Wings.  The Ducks outshot the Red Wings 41 to 29, the most shots any team has gotten through this season, but in the end it was the ones that went in that counted.  Detroit had four tallies and the Ducks […]

Parros Leads the Way in Ducks Victory over Panthers

Speak softly and carry a big stick was Teddy Roosevelt’s theory on enforcement.  George Parros did not speak so softly in a 5-3 victory over the Panthers as the Ducks enforcer netted two glorious goals in his first multi-goal game in the NHL.  Those two goals got the Ducks and the crowd energized and put […]

Ducks Shut Out Kings, 2-0

A win and two points is always a good thing.  When those two points come at the expense of your Pacific Division rival, the Los Angeles Kings, they seem even sweeter. The Kings, who have been strong for most of the season, have faltered of late, losing six of seven games going into their first […]

Ducks Winless No More With 6-4 Victory Over Phoenix

Going into Phoenix with a six-game losing streak to meet a team with a seven game winning streak, the hottest in the NHL, the Ducks did not seem to have a lot of hope.  A 6-4 victory over their Pacific Division rivals was not exactly what was expected, but it sure felt good. A lackluster […]

Chicago Kills Ducks 4-1

Twas the day after Thanksgiving and the Ducks let the turkey settle with an afternoon game against the Blackhawks.  By the end of the game, the Ducks were the ones with indigestion, as were Ducks fans who got to witness Anaheim’s sixth loss in a row.   Seems like the Ducks can’t get anything right […]

Carter Traded to Carolina

Ryan Carter is no longer a Duck.  After having been put on waivers for the second time in four months, Carter was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for Stefan Chaput and Matt Kennedy.  Carter cleared waivers prior to being traded.  Both Chaput, a center, and Kennedy, a right wing, have been playing for […]

Edmonton Hands Ducks Fifth Straight Loss

Whoops, they did it again.  Outshot and even outplayed an opponent and still could not win a game.  Not even a game against the bottom dwellers of the Western Conference, the Edmonton Oilers.  Oilers 4.  Ducks 2.  Well, technically three, but when you put the puck into your own empty net, it does count for […]

Ducks Make Moves

A lot can happen in 24 hours.  The Ducks, who lost their fourth game in a row on Friday night to Columbus, has been very busy since then.  The Ducks brought up Dan Sexton and Brandon McMillan from Syracuse.  McMillan got his first taste of the NHL by being inserted into the line up on […]

Ducks Cannot Get Past Blue Jackets in 4-3 Loss

After a three game road trip that was not horrible, but only earned two out of six points with two overtime losses, the Ducks were looking forward to coming home.  Seven of the next eight games to be played in their own building where they were 7-1-1 on the season was comforting enough.  Rather than […]

Stars Edge Ducks, 2-1

Ducks vs. Stars – take three.  The first two went to the Ducks, but for the Stars, the third time was the charm.   Having rested three full days between games helped.  Things started off pretty even, despite a more physical game from the Dallas.  After a great short handed scoring chance by Todd Marchant late […]

Blackhawks Need OT to Defeat Ducks

The Ducks ended their six game winning streak with an overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday evening.  That means that technically, they are still undefeated in regulation for seven games.  Realistically, a loss is a loss, but this one was not a bad one and they still earned a point for their efforts. […]

Ducks Shine Against Stars in 4-2 Win

The Ducks continued their winning ways with a 4-2 victory over the Dallas Stars, extending their winning streak to six games in a row.  The Ducks are now 10-7-1 on the season and in a quirky note, every single one of those victories have been by only one goal.  The two exceptions?  Both games against […]

Ducks Shut Out Islanders 1-0

Four in a row for the Anaheim Ducks.  Would it be five in a row against a struggling New York Islanders team, who had lost seven straight?   Despite being outshot and outplayed, the Ducks still managed to pull off a 1-0 win giving them five straight wins and much needed points in the standings.  Pretty […]

Four in a Row for Ducks

The Ducks came into San Jose with a three game winning streak, their first streak of the season.  The best news for Anaheim was that they would not have to face Joe Thornton, who was finishing up the second game of a two game suspension for an illegal hit on St. Louis winger, David Perron. […]

Ducks Inch Out Nashville, 5-4

It might have taken a while to win two in a row, but the Ducks wasted no time winning three in a row.   An exciting 5-4 victory over the Nashville Predators, with just :1.7 seconds left in regulations continued to build the Ducks confidence level. “It’s great,” beamed Lubomir Visnovsky, who had one of the […]
