Ducks surrendered to the Predators, 4-3 in an overtime competition. Even coming back twice from a one goal deficit, Anaheim was unable to beat the Predators. Although the Ducks still earn a point for the standings, it was a win they were striving for, to regain some momentum after losing the last three games.
The Ducks and the Predators each had 35 shots throughout the game, but Jiggy was unable to save the last goal scored by Dan Hamhuis, 2 minutes into overtime.
Brendan Morrison scored a goal in the first two minutes, but his lead was short lived. The Predators were quick to retaliate and scored two goals for a lead midway through the first period. Chris Kunitz scored the second goal for the Ducks on a power play with five minutes left in the first.
CHRIS KUNITZ SCORED A GOAL!!!!
There were no goals in the second period.
Both the Predators and the Ducks scored power play goals in the third to keep the score tied at the end of regulation.
Penalty minutes for the Ducks were relatively low, save one 5 minute major for fighting to Brad May, who recently returned from a leg injury.
With May's return and Parros back on the ice sans visor, the Ducks are at full strength but still unable to clinch a win in the past three games.
They next play their cross-town rivals, the Los Angeles Kings, at home on Sunday. Their current record with the Kings is tied at 1-1, and the game on Sunday gives the Ducks the opportunity to gain the upper hand in their record and get some momentum back from three straight losses.
Again, the next post will also be delayed due to my trip back home. Forgive the belated post, but its the best I can do.
Lets Go Ducks.
