The only game this season not televised due to Versus exclusive broadcasting, so I don't have much of an opinion. The score makes the game actually look better than what it sounded like. Ducks got 2 toward the end so it wasn't a complete shamble but nonetheless it sounded like a game where we're glad it wasn't televised. I can't remember the last time the Ducks have sent their fans into Christmas with a win, so this one is nothing new. The follow up one of their best games of the season with one of the worst.
