It's always nice when the Ducks win. It's nicer when they win on the road. It's even better when it's against one of the best teams out there. Yes, the Capitals were on a 6 game losing streak before this game, but losing streaks happen to everyone and does not measure what kind of team you have. Unless it becomes a habit. I'll save my witty snipe at the Islanders because of what happened the next night and I'm updating this post late.
POST GAME QUOTES:
"We just (have) to keep scratching and clawing," Getzlaf said. "We're not going to blow anybody out. Tonight, we had to take an extra five minutes, but we were able to get it done."
"It was definitely not our best period (1st)," Hiller said. "They put a lot of pressure on us. We gave them way too many turnovers and chances."
