Game 15: Ducks vs. Blues 11.5.08

Ducks Win 5 - 2 !

"The team is playing well and everybody is contributing in different areas," Getzlaf said. "Our penalty killing and power play is playing well. We’re getting great goaltending. It’s a matter of things are clicking right now and we just have to continue playing the way we are."

"We have to be happy with our work ethic, first and foremost," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "We played in a game last night in L.A. and [the Blues] were here waiting for us. We did some things that we have to do to be successful. We did those more consistently tonight than we did last night and that was our goal."

"You have to put most of it on [Getzlaf's] shoulders," said linemate Chris Kunitz of the Ducks' resurgence. "He sat out in Toronto because of a [dental procedure]. He came back, we got a goal that first game in Ottawa, and ever since then it’s just elevated everybody’s game. The power play started clicking after that. Teemu starting scoring a bunch of goals, Corey started getting a bunch of points and Prongs and Scotty. I think Getzy is probably the cornerstone of how it all started to go."
