Game 59: Ducks @ Devils

Photobucket @ Photobucket

Ducks Win 2 - 1!!

PERIOD 1: 2 - 0
PERIOD 2: 2 - 1
PERIOD 3: 2 - 1

This was a very gritty game. (Oh yeah my apologies for no gameday preview, oops!). It was hard fought, and NJ kept up the pressure and the Ducks played through it and didn't back down. I'm very proud of them for getting this win, it was much needed and on the end of a back to back hard to get win!! :D Hooray boys!! And who other than my fellow Minnesota Native, Ryan Carter, got the only 2 goals for the Ducks. His first and second of his NHL career. CRAZY! Good job Carter!

Congratulations to Randy Carlyle who, with tonights win, took over the top spot for Most Wins as a Coach for the Anaheim Ducks. He takes the top spot with 121 wins under his belt.

Oh man. What a game. Especially the last period, and ESPECIALLY the last five minutes. It was a real nail-biter, and the Devils came so close so many times to tying up the game, but Hiller came up HUGE. I'm glad he's starting to gain confidence and it's showing the net, most definitely.

And Carter, what the hell did he EAT this morning? Whatever it was, he better have it again Sunday morning. He's making Carlyle's decision a little tougher on who to remove from the roster to make room for Pahlsson, when he returns.

Awesome game. Here's to a good one in Detroit!
