Game 68: Ducks vs. Canucks 2.11.09

Ducks Win 4-3 in OT

“I just tried to get it up on him,” Niedermayer said, “and I think it got under his arm. Fortunately, I kind of bobbled so I didn’t really have time to think too much, which probably good. I just went down and tried to get it up high. I was just worried about not getting caught or not picked from behind and making a good shot."

“We needed it,” Niedermayer said. “We’re not where we want to be and this is a big extra point. We have a long way to go and we’ll take the two points. It’s nice to get back on the winning way at home."

Added Ducks coach Randy Carlyle, "It’s important for our well-being and our sanity more than anything. We’ve worked hard in some games and had as many chances as we’ve had tonight and still came up empty. It’s always enjoyable when you can find a way to win. It was a special play by a special player that won it for us. That is as strong of a team effort and as emotional as we’ve been in awhile."

Great win! Too bad there had to be such a long rest before the Sharks game. Hopefully it doesn't stop them from keep on building from this game :)
