Game 20: Ducks vs. Red Wings 11.20.11


"It’s very frustrating and almost the cruel side of sports," said Ducks coach Randy Carlyle. "We made enough mistakes that cost us the hockey game. There is no other way to describe it. We again mounted a comeback in the hockey game, but it just seems that we’re one goal short again."

"It’s tough. It’s a new experience for us here," said Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf. "We have to find a way to dig ourselves out of this thing."

"I thought we came out of the gates okay. We still dug a hole," Getzlaf said. "There is no doubt about that. The score doesn’t lie. At some point during the game, we let ourselves get down and get behind."

"I think things picked up when we started hitting them and playing physical," said Andrew Cogliano. "With a team like that, you have to take the body and stall them. That is how we got turnovers and started making more plays. Other than the first 20-30 minutes, we took the game to them."

"It’s not a matter of what I can say now," Getzlaf said. "We are in a situation where we have to play ourselves out of it and that includes me. I just have to keep playing and we have to lead by example. Our group here, who I have been with for a little while, we have a great core of leaders and we just have to keep pushing."
