Detroit is No Foe for Hot Ducks

The Ducks have been a scoring machine of late, scoring four or more goals in six games straight.  "When the guys score four, five goals every night, it's not too tough to win as a goalie," said Jonas Hiller after Saturday's game.  On Sunday against the Detroit Red Wings, things got a bit tougher, but […]

Ducks Sweep Series with Coyotes

And the Ducks keep rolling along, making it look easy when it really isn't.  A 5-3 victory over the Coyotes on Saturday night gave the Ducks the season series sweep against Phoenix as well as their 16th victory in 17 games.   They are only the seventh team in NHL history to do that.  "It can’t […]

Ducks Prey on Nashville 4-3

It must feel a little like the movie "Groundhog Day" for coach Bruce Boudreau.  Every game the Ducks come out slow, fall behind on the scoreboard, then pull it together for the win. All that tension can't be good for your heart, even if you have confidence that your team can pull things off.  Maybe […]

Advantage to Ducks Over Bruins

The Anaheim Ducks remain the NHL's top team and appear almost unbeatable at home.  Their latest win was a 5-2 effort over the Boston Bruins that extends their home streak to 18-0-2. Even scarier than their unbeaten home streak is that their power play has started to click again.   Pay no attention to the […]

Bad Start Ends Well for Ducks Over Canucks in OT

The Anaheim Ducks might have a 17-0-2 record at home, but they came about as close as you can get at blowing that perfect record against the Vancouver Canucks.  Good thing this team knows how to come back from a deficit and win games.  After a lousy first period, the Ducks were still able to […]

Ducks Roll Over Edmonton 5-2

It was not the usual scorers for Anaheim, but the depth stepped up in a 5-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers that kept the Ducks perfect at home with a 16-0-2 record. In a game where defenseman, Ben Lovejoy is your #1 scorer and star and Tim Jackman also shows up on the scoreboard, you […]

Fowler Named to US Olympic Team

After the Winter Classic (which lived up to its name with snow flurries throughout) was concluded, the US Men's Olympic Hockey team was announced.   One of the surprises, although not a complete surprise, was the inclusion of Anaheim Ducks defenseman, Cam Fowler. Fowler, 22, is just the fourth Duck to be named to Team USA […]

Ducks Bite Sharks 6-3

The Sharks spoiled the Ducks ten game winning streak on Sunday evening, but they were not able to hand the Ducks their first regulation loss at home on Tuesday in front of a sell-out plus crowd.   Anaheim's 6-3 victory maintained home domination (15-0-2) and was the first time in four games that they were able […]

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 […]

Third Line’s the Charm Against Phoenix

Christmas break?  What Christmas break?   The Ducks did not lose a single step after four days off between games in a 3-2 overtime win over Phoenix.   The victory increased their home record to 14-0-2 and keeps them on top of the NHL with 10 consecutive wins in a row.  Ten wins in a row doesn't […]

Another Come From Behind Victory For Ducks Over Capitals

And a Merry Christmas to Ducks fans!  Nine in a row now for the NHL leading team that was not predicted to do particularly well this season.  Surprise!

Eight Straight Wins For Ducks

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. Playing in the second back to back games, things looked a little iffy for Anaheim.  The Islanders might be […]

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.
