Game 73: Ducks vs. Canucks

Photobucket vs. Photobucket

Ducks Win 4 - 1!!!!

PERIOD 1: 3 - 1
PERIOD 2: 4 - 1
PERIOD 3: 4 - 1

I just want to point out our first goal which was hilarious... Marchant had a break away and Luongo comes out all far to challenge him and takes this dramatic dive and Marchant just puts the puck into the empty net... that was funny! :) Luongo let in 4 before being pulled, then their backup goalie came in and held the ducks off... but it was too late. Hiller only let in 1 goal and thus the Ducks win 4 to 1. They put out a great effort tonight after last nights somewhat... abnormal loss. I think RC sent a strong message to the team by putting who he did out in the shootout last night... "we shouldn't even be in this situation right now, you don't deserve the extra point, I'll put in the guys who aren't great at the shootout but were the only ones who showed up tonight and see what happens" (No he didn't say that, it's just what I think he meant by last nights shootout lineup) AND BOY DID THE TEAM RESPOND TO THAT.

PS;; Ducks set a new franchise record with 8 straight home wins in a row. Woooo!


"This team has always played well at home, and to keep that going is great," Moen said. "It seems like we always come out to good starts lately in our barn. It was good to come out and get a three-goal lead." -- Travis Moen

"I just happened to be in the right place at the right time," Marchant said. "Kuni made a nice play to get it off the wall and for me fortunately Luongo decided to come out and try to play it. I got to it before him." -- Todd Marchant

"Marchant just chipped it to me and I just drove wide and I got a step on a guy," Moen said. "I pulled it in, saw a little bit of net in the top right corner and put it there." -- Travis Moen

"We try never to let ourselves get too high or too low after shootout losses or wins," Marchant said, referring to that 3-2 loss the night before. "Our tendency was to feel like it was more of a loss only because we had opportunities to win that game. This team tries to take that same philosophy of as a group and as individuals to not get too high or too low. We came out and played a solid 60-minute game tonight against a team that certainly is fighting for a playoff spot. As we know these points are all crucial, not only for us, but for all the other teams." -- Todd Marchant
