Game 44: Ducks vs. Devils 1.11.09

Ducks Win 4-3!

"It’s been up and down this year so far," Kunitz said. "It feels good to help contribute and get the win. We’ve been hovering around the .500 mark the last little while and not really advancing ourselves. Every win is important for us and to get the home wins before we start out on the road."

"He’s a great offensive player that can move the puck and draws people to him," Kunitz said. "Any time you have a key offensive guy out of the lineup and you get him back, it gives the whole team a boost."

"It was nice to see Kunitz come through," said Ducks coach Randy Carlyle. "I thought it was his best game in a long time. He was skating and banging and the puck seemed to follow him around that way."

"That one felt good. I won’t lie to you," said Giguere, who hadn't won since Dec. 14 against Minnesota at Honda Center. "At the end of the day, this game is about winning. You’ll always look better when you win. Hopefully this will give me a little bit of confidence, as well as the team and then we can start something from today’s game."

"I thought we played very well 5-on-5," said Carlyle. "The shots that we gave up were on the power play. We gave up too many from that standpoint because they had some flurries on the power play. Other than that, I thought we played a pretty solid game."
