Game 66: Ducks vs. Stars 3.6.09

Ducks Lose 3-2

"With the team losing guys that they won a Stanley Cup with, I think the chemistry in the room is going to take awhile to adjust," said Christensen, who came over in a trade with Atlanta. "Some of the guys just don’t know the new guys here, like me. It might just take a couple of games for everything to feel somewhat normal again. I thought we played well. We put a lot of shots on goal. Turco stood on his head."

"Everybody is going to beat each other and it’s going to be real tough," Giguere said. "Obviously, we want to get the points here at home. It’s not about the other team right now, it’s about us trying to win games and trying to put ourselves in a good situation. It’s up to us."

"It was just a bad break," Christensen said. "I was nervous for sure. You try to make a good first impression and on the first shift, you take a penalty and they score. It’s not the best feeling."

"I think with the number of chances that we did create and the pucks we directed at the net, [Turco] made some big stops," said Ducks coach Randy Carlyle. "Some stops [Turco] didn’t even see. But that is when things are going your way as a goalie and things are hitting you. You have to take your hat off to him. [Turco] battled and had made the stops for [the Stars'] hockey club."
