Anaheim Outlook

The Ducks ended their five-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche this past Sunday. Jakob Silfverberg scored his team-leading 17th goal and 100th goal of his NHL career. Cam Fowler scored his 57th goal, which is second all-time among Ducks defenseman.

Devin Shore was knocked out of the game from a hit by Ian Cole. Shore had an MRI yesterday which revealed he has a Charley horse and minor knee hyperextension. It appears he avoided a serious injury. Cole was given a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct. There was no hearing by the NHL Player Safety committee.

Ryan Kesler will play in his 1000th NHL game tonight.
