Game 64: Ducks vs. Avalanche

Photobucket vs. Photobucket

Ducks Win 3 - 2 in Shoot Out!!!

PERIOD 1: 1 - 0
PERIOD 2: 1 - 2
PERIOD 3: 2 - 2
OT: 2 - 2
SO: 3 - 2

This was a pretty good game all things considered. Teemu had the 1st goal of the night and it was a pretty goal. He was just in the right place at the exact right time and he got it. And then there were all of those missed goals that really should have been goals but somehow the puck just didn't cross the line. The 2nd period was more than shaky and at the end of the 2nd there were only 10 shots on goal on our side, and 21 for Colorado. They came out ready to go in the 3rd though, Pronger had the slap shot that Rob deflected into the net that tied the game in the 3rd period. Huge goal! Much needed! And then we go to OT, and nothing happens. Shoot out time! Perry scores, Teemu doesn't, Getzlaf hit the post, but JIGGY stopped all 3 attempts by Colorado, which means DUCKS WIN!!! It helps that Dallas AND San Jose lost tonight. We're now 5 points ahead of SJ *They still have 4 games in hand though* and we are 4 points behind Dallas for 1st place and they don't have any games in hand on us.

Downside to the night, Carter got injured. He has a bruised forearm and will be re-evaluated tomorrow. EDIT: Apparently Marchant also went down with an injury last night. He has a shoulder strain. :(

The replays of the Carter injury made the announcers think his arm got stuck or jammed by the photographer's hole that was in the glass where he got crunched up against. I really hope his injury is MINOR, but it's good that after this weekend they get a pretty good stretch of time off. He was on a roll. And...we are still shootout gurus!

I was in a nyquil-induced coma, so I actually missed this game. But I'm watching the replay on FSNPT right now. I hope Carter's injury isn't bad. He's been awesome, and to have him go out just sucks for him. He's just starting to make a name for himself.

But glad to know the boys won. I hope they keep it up, I'll be there Sunday!
