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

Anaheim Loses at Home to Devils

This is one the Ducks should have had.   The 4-3 overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils just doesn't feel good. "It's not losing games that bugs you so much," said Ryan Getzlaf.  "It's the way you lose them.  We played a pretty solid game, but we've got to be able to be a great […]

Penguins Pounce on Ducks 3-1

It's been a long season for the Ducks.  They have played twice as many games away (15) as they have at home (8).   They have also played more games than any other team in the NHL.  It was bound to catch up with them sooner or later.  Despite that, the Ducks are still tied at […]
