Overview:

If you’d like to know how this game went, re-watch the Saturday version. Revise the Cogliano hat trick to goals by Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, and Bobby Ryan… and give credit of one to Beleskey..and it was the same game. The goals were scored in the same order, and the shootout resulted in the same score. Oh, and we play them again, tomorrow. If we win in REGULATION this annoying 3-in-a-row sequence can be settled in a tie in points earned, which is what the Ducks need for it to be considered a success.

Player Quotes:

“They responded well,” Getzlaf said. “Every time we scored, they came back with a great shift or a goal. That’s tough to defend. We got two points out of four on the road, but we’ve got to make sure we get the next two.”

“It’s tough getting scored on twice right after we scored,” Hiller said. “It was a tough game to play. The puck was all over the place and it was tough to read what was happening. It could have possibly gone either way, and it’s tough to lose again that way. Everybody in here wants to win. To get one point again, nobody is happy in here.”

“We got two points here, but we had chances to win both games and we didn’t get the job done,” said Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau. “Whatever happened, it’s got to end.”

Said Getzlaf, “We’ve got a little work to do. They’re a good team, and we didn’t allow ourselves to get going at any time. Every time we did something in a positive way, we took a step back. We’ve got to go back home and take care of our building now.”

Game Notes:

  • “Getzy’s shorthanded goal was the third of his career and his first since Dec. 8, 2007 at Nashville.” (via @kyleshohara)
  • “Getzlaf also has 4-8=12 points over his last seven games and 5-10=15 in his last 10.” (via @kyleshohara)
  • “Ryan Getzlaf is 4-9-13 in last eight. Boudreau: ‘He was our best player by a country mile.’” (via @icemancometh)
  • “Both #NHLDucks games at PHO, goals were scored in same order: ANA, PHO, PHO, ANA, ANA, PHO, ANA, PHO. Very bizarre.” (via @DucksColorMan)
