Game 75: Ducks @ Stars

Photobucket @ Photobucket

Ducks Win 2 - 1!! :D

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

Holy crap what a great nail biting game!! :D Pulled out a win in regulation with less than 2 minutes to go in the 3rd period, freaking sweet!! The adrenaline is still pumping in my body but wow what a game! There was some pretty bad penalty calls on both sides but I'm going to point out that the one against Rob Niedermayer for 4 minutes was absolutely terrible. Scott Niedermayer was a-freakin-mazing in this game, he controlled the whole thing. He even got the 1st goal for the Ducks with what he made look very easy. He played a huge portion of the game and didn't even look tired, there's not enough good things to say about Scott Niedermayer... he's one of the best.


"That was a goal scorer's goal," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "I think it surprised Turco that he shot it from that position. That's what goal scorers do."

"I didn't have a lot of time," Bertuzzi said. "I just wanted to get it there as fast as possible."

"It's a good rivalry (with Dallas)," Bertuzzi said. "These are fun games to play going into the playoffs. It's a big win for us.

"It was a bad angle that I got a piece of but it went in," Turco said. "It's one I'd like to have back but I can't. It was a save that needed to be made."

"I'm in a pretty bad mood right now," Morrow said. "I don't like to see a game decided like that. It's frustrating. After all the stuff (the referees) let go, that was kind of middle-of-the-road. With the exception of (Scott) Niedermayer, you could call a penalty on their defense on every shift."

"It's important with the way things have been going this year," Giguere said. "It was good we beat them here. Most likely we're going to see them in the playoffs. It's going to be a good battle."

"We were on our heels early and were fortunate to get a win on the road," Bertuzzi said.

I propose an expansion team, the Niedermayer brothers + Giggy. It almost seems like those are the only guys really feeling it lately...really wanting that cup back. Perhaps I'd draft Marchant as well...he's had a lot of effort lately too.

Scotty looked amazing - and we pulled off a huge win. We need to keep Dallas behind us...as the chances of catching SJ are slim to none. Home ice is where we excel. This season sure is a nail biter! I liked the "you can call a penalty on every defensemen, every shift, for the Ducks...except on Scotty" quote -- what a whiner (and yet what a compliment to Scotty!).
