San Jose Stops Anaheim’s Winning Streak

Let us pause now for a moment of silence as the Ducks winning streak has officially died at 10 games….. Ok, now what the heck happened? A team that looked invincible and able to come back from all sorts of odds just looked pedestrian and beatable in a 3-1 loss to San Jose.   The Sharks […]

With a 5-3 come from behind victory over the New York Islanders, the Ducks keep rolling along.  This win, another on the road, gives them streak of eight straight games, a franchise best for the team.

Palmieri Gets OT Winner Against Devils

There's no place like home.  There's no place like home.  That had to be going through Jersey native Kyle Palmieri's head when the Ducks faced the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center on Friday night.  Palmieri's overtime game winner at 2:37 of the extra period gave Anaheim their seventh win in a row (the […]

Ducks Defeat Detroit 5-2 on the Road

Proof that miracles do happen – the Ducks defeating the Detroit Red Wings 5-2 on the road.  In the regular season.  For Anaheim it has been 20 years of futility at Joe Louis Arena.  Nearly 40 games played there in the regular season and previous Tuesday evening's game there had been four wins.   I don't […]

Selanne Ends Drought in Edmonton Victory

The Ducks continued their winning ways at home with a 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday.  They are now 13-0-2 at home, the only NHL team unbeaten in regulation, a franchise best for them.

Ducks Keep Wild at Bay 2-1

The Ducks did it again – another win at home, this time a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild.  Anaheim remains unbeaten in regulation with a 12-0-2 record, a franchise best. The Wild did not make it easy and goaltender, Josh Harding, lived up to his stingy billing.  Harding leads the NHL with a 1.52 […]

Perry Punishes New York Islanders

After two high tempo, energetic road games against the Chicago Blackhawks and the St. Louis Blues, the Ducks experienced a bit of a let down when facing the New York Islanders at home.  Its always easy to come out strong against two of the top teams in the league.  Not so much with a team […]

Anaheim Downs St. Louis 5-2

It only took 7:29 for the Ducks to defeat the St. Louis Blues on Saturday evening, but they still played the rest of the game anyway.    Well, almost everyone did. The Ducks came out of the gate like a bat out of hell, carrying momentum from their previous night's shootout win over Chicago. Technically the […]

Ducks Finally Win Shootout and Continue Dominance of Chicago

Apparently three times the charm for Anaheim in the shootout.  After two failed attempts at earning the extra point, the Ducks made sure to get it right against Chicago on their third straight attempt. The 3-2 victory against the Blackhawks continued the Ducks dominance against Chicago, having won the previous five match ups.   For whatever […]

Kings Best Ducks 3-2 in Shootout

Familiarity breeds contempt and for the Ducks and Kings, there is plenty of contempt. In the first meeting of the season on Tuesday night, the two teams showed why they are both at the top of the Pacific Division and the NHL to a standing room only Honda Center.  The game took not only overtime, […]

Sharks Shootout Ducks 4-3

San Jose and Anaheim, the two top teams in the Pacific Division, battled it out on Saturday and in the end, San Jose came out on top in shootout.   Barely. Both teams were playing the second of back to back games, but they had plenty of energy for each other. Corey Perry put the Ducks […]

Ducks Continue To Stymie Calgary 5-2

You have to feel sorry for the Calgary Flames.  If nothing else, as a Ducks fan, you certainly have to empathize with them.  The Flames have come into the Honda Center 18 times now and 18 times the Ducks have won.  This goes back to January 19, 2004.  A decade of suffering in a building […]

Stars 1-2-3 Punch Knocks Out Ducks

Ouch.  The 6-3 rout of the Ducks by the Dallas Stars hurt.   It was the three goals in three shots in less than a minute in the third period that did Anaheim in.  For the first two periods of play, things looked good.  Emerson Etem scored at 6:06 of the first period to give the […]
