Game 54: Ducks @ Wild 2.4.09

Ducks Lose 3 - 0.

"Our execution was really, I would say, off," coach Randy Carlyle said. "We just couldn't seem to do anything with the puck, and we got frustrated. I didn't think we really got involved in the game until the third period. ... We can't afford a performance like we had tonight, in this situation.It's only going to get tigther, and these two points were too important for us to pass up," he said. "It's just disturbing from the standpoint of how little we were into the game."

Added Niedermayer, “We’re obviously disappointed with the effort overall. It was not as good as it needs to be at this time of the year. Especially where we’re at, it needs to be corrected right now. We need to play better, period.”

"It's too bad we can't start like we play in the third," Hiller said. "We're always down one goal after the second period and we try to make it up in the third, but in this league that's not easy. We should probably think about having a better start."
