Ducks vs Devils RECAP: High Event Hockey

If you missed this game against New Jersey, you missed a lot The Anaheim Ducks rebounded nicely from their 4-1 loss against the Carolina Hurricanes with a 6-5 victory over the New Jersey Devils, requiring a shootout to do so. The game was not the best defensively for either team, but there were lots of shots, lots of opportunities, and lots of goals. The first period alone saw three goals in the opening four minutes of the game and ended up in a 3-3 tie after the opening 20 minutes. Kiefer Sherwood and Ondrej Kase both scored lucky goals that ended up deflecting off Devils players on their...

Ducks vs Hurricanes RECAP: Blown Over

Ducks vs Hurricanes RECAP: Blown Over

A lifeless performance snaps the Ducks 5 game win streak On a night that saw Anaheim welcome back Francois Beauchemin with 2014 Stadium Series throwback jerseys, the play on the ice did not quite match the festivities elsewhere in Honda Center. Lackadaisical play and execution problems abounded in the Ducks 4-1 loss at the hands of the Carolina Hurricanes. The Canes controlled 60% of the shot attempts and held Anaheim to just 4 high danger chances the entire game. This, without Rickard Rakell dealing with a day-to-day lower body injury. The start was certainly encouraging. Jakob Silfverberg...

Ducks vs Blackhawks RECAP: We’re Going Streaking

Daniel Sprong scores in his Ducks debut as Anaheim takes down Chicago 4-2. Daniel Sprong went from 4th line minutes and the occasional healthy scratch to 2nd line duties alongside Adam Henrique and Nick Ritchie in a matter of days. No doubt that the Ducks new forward acquisition was happy about that. Sprong had mostly played 4th line minutes this season with the Pittsburgh Penguins. It was well known that head coach Mike Sullivan had run out of patience with the 21-year-old, and many Penguins fans believed he did not get a fair shot. That shot is now coming with Anaheim in legitimate top 6...

Meanwhile On The Farm: Listless and Soft

Meanwhile On The Farm: Listless and Soft

After a tough emotional victory over the powerhouse Moose, San Diego dropped the next game in apathetic fashion. It has been another week of uncertainty on the blue line as the Ducks continue to shuffle among Sustr, Mahura and Welinski; leaving the Gulls to work with what they have and attempt some semblance of defensive core. San Diego Gulls vs Manitoba Moose I have been unable to watch this game, again due to AHL TV magically not having the game on their On Demand file for some reason. But in brief summary - a visit from the Moose and very recent former Gull - Logan Shaw. The Gulls...
