Anaheim vs St Louis

Anaheim vs St Louis

The Ducks were able to earn a point in the standings by holding off the Blues for the duration of the game, but were unable to finish strong in the overtime competition on Friday, losing with a score of 3-2.

The tied score at the end of the third was due to a remarkable effort by Scott Niedermayer, scoring in the last 0.9 seconds of the game, his third goal this season. Chris Kunitz scored the first goal for the Ducks in the third, ensuring that the game would remain competitive till the very end. Both teams were tied for shots at the end of the game.

Both of the goals scored by St Louis were on a power play, yet another example of the Duck's struggle to kill off the numerous penalties they earn. Penalties tonight were earned in earnest for fighting infractions, three in the first period alone.
