Recap: Anaheim Enjoys Sweet Redemption Via Shootout Victory Over Canucks

Just 11 days after a shootout loss to the Canucks at Honda Center, the Ducks got to see the sweet taste of revenge by winning in Vancouver in the form of a shootout. Final Score: Ducks 5, Canucks 4 (SO) Chart courtesy of War-on-ice.com In Ryan Kesler's first game in Vancouver since the trade that took him to Anaheim, it was unclear before puck drop if he'd be welcomed warmly or met with disapproving boos of fans in attendance. Well, it was the second option that proved true with waves of boos resonating from the crowd every time that Kesler touched the puck. Thursday's game saw the return...

Canucks can't hang on in third period, fall to Ducks in 4-3 shootout loss

Despite scoring three goals in the second period to take the lead, the Vancouver Canucks dropped their first overtime game of the year against Ryan Kesler and the Ducks. Initially, there were mixed reactions from Canucks fans when a video tribute to Ryan Kesler was shown before Thursday night's Pacific Division showdown between the Anaheim Ducks and the Vancouver Canucks with possession of first place in the division on the line. As the game went on however, the boos only grew louder for the former Canuck. In the end, it would be Kesler's Ducks who came out on top. After erasing a two goal...

Anaheim Seeks Redemption Victory in Vancouver

After losing to the Vancouver Canucks at home less than two weeks ago, the Ducks hope to come out of Thursday night's contest with a win, hopefully in regulation for a welcomed change. Thursday night marks the first time Ryan Kesler will play an NHL game in Vancouver wearing anything other than a Canuck jersey. But in an interview with the media, Kesler made it clear he wasn't scared, but was looking forward to an intense matchup and is confident that Anaheim can leave with the two points. The Anaheim Ducks have been tied with their opponents, forcing extra minutes in six of their last...

Kuzma: On the ice, Kesler never cheated anyone, be they fans, teammates or coaches

How will Ryan Kesler be greeted Thursday night at Rogers Arena? Expect mostly cheers, and probably a few jeers, when one of the most polarizing players in Vancouver Canucks history plays his first game here following a multi-player trade with the Anaheim Ducks in June. Remembered as much for his brooding presence and fencing with the media as his prolonged periods of pure on-ice dominance — think Todd Bertuzzi in his prime — it’s no wonder there’s a buzz about what could and should transpire.

Gallagher: Canucks’ lack of development of young forwards should be big concern

With Zack Kassian set to return to the lineup in his familiar third-line position Wednesday in Edmonton, and seemingly happy to do so, it makes you wonder about the Vancouver Canucks’ player development. Seemingly content to never get a shot in the top six, despite his mountains of talent — at least he refuses to say anything, so we have to assume he’s either fine with it or scared to talk — it makes you think about Kassian’s career in particular, and how the Canucks haven’t developed a forward since Ryan Kesler and Alex Burrows.

This Week in the Pacific Divison: Here come the Calgary Flames?

The Ducks are still on top, but is Calgary the second-best team in the division? The Ducks, or as I like to call them, Mumpsford and Sons, are still leading the division after a second-straight week with a 1-1-1 record. But there is a team that is hard-charging, and that team somehow is the Calgary Flames. Martin Hanzal had the single-best game this week out of everyone with his hat trick, but there were some other big-time performances, and some not so much. Here's a look at this week's studs and duds from around the Pacific. Anaheim Ducks (11-4-4, 1-1-1 this week) Stud: Ryan Kesler....
