Ducks Win 3 -2 in SO!!!
PERIOD 1: 1 - 0
PERIOD 2: 2 - 1
PERIOD 3: 2 - 2
SO: 3 - 2
This was a pretty good game! The first period was the best period that the Ducks played, they dominated that period with 10 shots on goal to 3. Then the Stars came out in the 2nd probably saying "not so fast"... and they put the pressure on. They ended up in the shootout where Teemu and Kunitz produce 2 goals which was enough to win the shootout since Jiggy only let in 1. :) Very good game, and it was nice to have both Getzy and Giguere back in the lineup. They have been missed.
GAME DAY QUOTES:
"We’ve certainly had our struggles against them this year," Schneider said about the Stars. "The last couple of games we’ve reversed their fortunes. It’s been a great back and forth series. They are one of the elite teams in the Western Conference. If we do end up playing them, it’s going to be a battle. If we can get home ice, that’s a big bonus for us. We put ourselves in a positive that we might be able to."
"I felt good. I felt strong," Getzlaf said. "Everything went as planned. It was a big win for us, as well as me getting back in there and feeling comfortable again."
Said Schneider of Getzlaf: "You can’t say enough about what he’s done for this club this year, especially as a 22-year-old. "It’s just amazing. He comes back off an injury and gets a good contribution again tonight. He just creates time and space out there and uses his body. He’s going to be an elite player for years and years here."
"It’s a hockey game that obviously was tight," said Ducks coach Randy Carlyle. "We feel fortunate enough to get the extra point in a shootout. Now it’s down to two. The bottom line is we have two more games next weekend. We’ve got a week to prepare. We’ll start our preparation on Tuesday and see where that takes us."
