Game 58: Ducks vs. Thrashers 2.15.09

Ducks Lose 8 to 4. Yes, you read that right. 8 to 4.

"Everything that you don’t want to happen happened," said Ducks captain Scott Niedermayer. "We made our share of mistakes and they scored their share of goals. I guess those nights do happen once in awhile. Unfortunately, we can’t afford right now. That is the worst part of it."

"We shot ourselves in the foot," said Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf. "We have to regroup now and go back to work. Nothing really needs to be said. Everybody knows what went on. We got embarrassed in our own building tonight."

"That last goal was a pretty good summation of the night," Niedermayer said. "It’s a pretty frustrating night to be a part of. I know I made my share of mistakes out there. That is where it has to start is I have to be better and we’ll go from here."

"Every bounce ended up on their stick and they were shooting the puck," Getzlaf said. "We are a team that prides ourselves on not giving up so many shots. In the first period, it’s tough when you take that many penalties to get the momentum. We didn’t respond the way we needed to."
