The Anaheim Ducks took on the Columbus Blue Jackets with two new faces in their lineup, Adam Henrique and Joseph Blandisi. Ondrej Kase was activated off the injured reserve list and played. Jakob Silfverberg did not play. John Gibson was in net for Anaheim and Joonas Korpisalo went for Columbus.

First Period

The Blue Jackets opened up the scoring when Brandon Dubinsky took a shot that beat Gibson as he was screened on the play. About two minutes later Cam Fowler tied the game on a point shot that snuck by Korpisalo. The teams remained tied at one after the first period.

Second Period

Adam Henrique made an immediate impact as he made a pass springing Kevin Roy on a breakaway that resulted in a goal giving Anaheim a 2-1 lead. Halfway though the period Kevin Bieksa would get called for high sticking and Artemi Panarin would score to tie the game. At the end of the period Gibson would get called for tripping Nick Foligno after he hit Josh Manson and a scrum would breakout. The score remained tied after two periods.

Third Period

In the final frame things continued to be chippy as players started jawing at each other. It seemed like the game might head to overtime, but Josh Anderson scored to give Columbus the one goal lead. The Ducks had a power play in the final minutes of the game and pulled Gibson, but they couldn’t tie the game. Columbus scored an empty net goal and won 4-2.


The Ducks took too many penalties in this game and let chances slip away. Anaheim had a four minute power play early in the game that they couldn’t convert one. They also had a 6-on-4 advantage late in the game, but couldn’t tie the game. The Ducks had some chances at open nets as well, but missed on those opportunities. Anaheim will regroup and face Nashville tomorrow.
