Anaheim Edges Out Columbus 4-3

After a 4-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Ducks are at 2-2-0 halfway through their eight game road trip.  Although it looked like the game could go into overtime, Corey Perry took advantage of a fortuitous bounce of the puck and got the game winning goal with less than 2:30 to play.    A […]

Ducks Defeat Ottawa 2-1

After losing the first two games of an eight game road trip, the Ducks got things back on track on Friday evening in Ottawa with a 2-1 victory.  Because it was the second of back to back games, Frederik Andersen took over in net, getting his first ever start.    He made 26 saves to get […]

Montreal Bests Ducks 4-1

So far not so good on this eight game road trip.  Two games down, two losses in a row.  First a 4-2 loss to Toronto and then a 4-1 loss to Montreal.   Ouch.  This was a team who put together seven wins in a row to tie a franchise record and now they cannot […]

Kessel Kills Ducks Streak

All good things must come to an end and that includes a franchise record seven game winning streak for the Ducks. On Tuesday, the Toronto Maple Leafs got a decisive 4-2 victory over Anaheim, including a hat trick from Phil Kessel.    And things started off so nicely, too.  Patrick Maroon, who was back in the […]

Dallas Is Latest Ducks Victim

The Ducks managed to pull off a 6-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Sunday to keep their home record perfect and extend their winning streak to seven games. Trailing 3-1 after the first period to a team who had played the night before, it looked like all good things were going to come to […]

Shootout Win Against Phoenix Keeps Ducks Streak Alive

The Ducks have been accumulating wins to start the season, but they aren't doing it the easy way.  Their latest 3-2 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes was a sigh of relief, because until late in the third period, it appeared the Ducks were headed to their first loss at home and only their second loss […]

Ducks Douse Flames 3-2

It was not the best of games for the Ducks, but a win is a win and a 3-2 victory over the Calgary Flames kept their streak alive at five games in a row. Even though things started off well for Anaheim, they got a little bumpy in the middle.  Dustin Penner got his second […]

Mighty Ducks Down Ottawa on Throwback Night

Too bad it can't be throwback night every night.  On Sunday evening, the Ducks lived up to their original Mighty name and defeated the Ottawa Senators 4-1. From honoring fifteen players from the original Ducks team that took the ice on October 8, 1993, to the retro uniforms, to the $0.93 sodas, popcorn and cupcakes, […]

Silfverberg Leads Ducks to 6-0 Victory Over Rangers

The Ducks started their season on the road and came back for a home opener filled with pomp and circumstance and sweet 6-0 victory over the New York Rangers. Never mind that the Rangers are a struggling team right now, being outscored 15-2 in their past two efforts.  A win is a win, and the […]

Perry Has Game Winner Against Winnipeg

Teemu Selanne started his career in Winnipeg in 1992 and was there for a mere four seasons (compared with 15 in Anaheim).  Nonetheless, he is still as loved and respected by the Manitoban fans as he was when he played in a Jets uniform.  Although Selanne did not score in his final appearance in Winnipeg, […]

Ducks Redeem Themselves in 4-3 OT Victory in Minnesota

The Ducks needed to redeem themselves after an uninspiring 6-1 loss to start the season against Colorado.   What a difference a couple days make! A couple of practices and a new attitude merited positive results in Minnesota, a notoriously difficult building to play in.   The 4-3 overtime win was vastly different from Wednesday night's efforts. […]

Colorado Takes Advantage of Error Laden Ducks 6-1

If this is how the whole season is going to go, Teemu Selanne is going to regret coming back for a final year.  Anaheim has to be a whole lot better after a 6-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche to open the season on Wednesday night.   A lot better.  From top to bottom. The Ducks […]

Perrault Acquired; More Cuts

On Tuesday, Anaheim acquired center Mathieu Perreault from the Washington Capitals.  In exchange, the Capitals received left wing John Mitchell and a fourth-round selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. "It was a little bit of a shock, but I'm very excited to get a chance to come to this organization," said Perreault. "Things were […]

Sharks Edge Ducks 6-5

Considering that it was the final pre-season game of the year and the last chance to impress, you would think the Ducks would have done better against San Jose.  They did not. Instead, Anaheim was less than impressive in the 6-5 loss.  They came close, but close only counts in hand grenades and dance contests. […]

More Cuts from the Ducks

As training camp is coming to an end, final cuts still need to be made to the Anaheim Ducks roster.  The Ducks continue to pare down their roster, with more cuts still needing to be made. The Ducks sent goaltender Frederik Anderson to their AHL affiliate in Norfolk.  Defenseman Garnet Exelby, who was on a […]
