Ducks Win 3-1 !!!
PERIOD 1: 2 - 1
PERIOD 2: 2 - 1
PERIOD 3: 3 - 1
Do you think Ottawa has some anger inside of them towards us?? Maybe they weren't happy with how the cup finals turned out? Maybe they were mad that we killed them in Game 5 with a score of 6-2, one of those goals being because of one of their own? Maybe??? Before I go off on a rant about how undisciplined Ottawa seemed tonight, lets start with the happy news. Ducks beat them 3 - 1 with goal credit going to Scotty, Perry, and Big Bert. :) Ducks got a tad sloppy in the 2nd and started off weak in the 3rd but Randy pulled a Time Out and got the boys back on track. On the flip side, Murray (coach of the Sens, ex-Duck GM) got himself kicked out because he didn't like a penalty call, and in turn ran his own team into the ground by getting an extra bench minor for unsportsman-like conduct plus a game misconduct which threw him out of the game. With that 2 man advantage to the Ducks, they scored and made it 3 - 1. Oh and then there was their goalie, Gerber, remember him-- ex-duck? Yeah all respect I had left for him from being a former Duck is gone. He was extremely undisciplined tonight and even started throwing punches and his first offense was a wicked slash that sent (Moen?) to the ground after the whistle had blown. He got away with both offenses too. Jerk. He's a punk. I'm glad we beat them AGAIN.
QUOTES OF THE GAME
"We were expecting them to come out hard," Giguere said. "They played a really good game, but I thought we didn’t give them a chance. We started with a very strong first and after that we never looked back. All together, I think we played really well tonight." - J.S. Giguere
"We tried to stress that there was a different feeling about preparing for the game," Carlyle said. "We felt that the matchup against them last year that would be some incentive. They have had some change in their hockey club as we’ve had some change, so it was another test for us. They are a very highly skilled group and they won their last game, scoring some big goals against Pittsburgh. They were looking at this as maybe a possible springboard. It’s not like they played poorly." - Head Coach, Randy Carlyle
