Anaheim Outlook

The Ducks ended their losing streak by beating the Blue Jackets this past Sunday 3-2 in overtime. Cam Fowler led Anaheim to victory with his first career hat trick. He also became only the second player in NHL history(since 2010/11) to score a goal during 5-on-5, 4-on-4, and 3-on-3 play in one contest. Hampus Lindholm also did it last season. Ryan Getzlaf did not play in the contest and is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Sam Carrick was called up just prior to the game and played.
