Game 75: Ducks vs. Oilers 3.27.09

Ducks Lose 5-3.

"We had a number of good chances there on the power play throughout the course of the third period," said Ducks defenseman Chris Pronger. "We were moving it around, moving our feet, getting seams and getting pucks to the net. At the end of the day, a lot those chances are going to squirt on to somebody’s stick and you’re going to put it in the net. Tonight wasn’t the night."

"We gave up four goals and we didn’t really give up a lot the rest of the way, but that is enough to win," said Ducks coach Randy Carlyle. "You can’t be happy when you give up four goals and lose an important game like this. Our effort was there. Obviously, we could have executed better. The situation is we played our hearts out. There was no shortage of work ethic. These are ones where you have to pump people up because get down when you work and you don’t get the result. Tonight was one of those nights."

"I’m sure we’d like to have a better start," Giguere said. "After the first two minutes, I thought we controlled the game. Roloson really kept them in. If we play like this, we’ll win more games than we’ll lose. That is just the bottom line."

"We have to start preparing and focus on Colorado on Sunday," Pronger said. "It’s tough loss. You’re going to feel it here for a little while. When you leave the rink tonight, you have to put it out of your mind and make sure we’re ready to come to the rink tomorrow to work."
