The Anaheim Ducks began their four-game road trip in the windy city of Chicago against the Blackhawks. John Gibson was in net against Robin Lehner.

In the opening moments, Patrick Kane had a great chance with a breakaway chance, but Gibson was able to make the save stopping the puck at the goal line.

The Ducks would take the lead 1-0 when Ondrej Kase would find Max Jones in front of the Chicago net. The Blackhawks would answer back on a 2-on-1 with a goal by Jonathan Toews to tie it up at one apiece. The teams would remain tied after one period.

The Blackhawks would take the lead early in the second period. The Ducks would have a bad line change and Dominik Kubalik would get to a rebound to give Chicago the lead 2-1. They would extend their lead to 3-1 when Kubalik would score again by getting to a rebound and beating Gibson five-hole.

Rickard Rakell would make a nice play in front of the Chicago net to get the Ducks back within one to start the third period. Chicago would answer back with a goal by Ollie Maatta a little over a minute later. Adam Henrique had a couple of good chances to try to rally Anaheim within one, but he couldn’t convert. The Ducks pulled their goalie in the final minutes, but still lost 4-2.

Team News/Stats:

Max Jones left the game with an upper-body injury and did not return.


The Anaheim Ducks had a decent start to this game and got on the board first. Chicago started to gain some momentum at the end of the first period and carried into the second. The Blackhawks outshot the Ducks 17-9 and scored twice in the middle frame. The Ducks played better in the third period and tried to mount a comeback, but fell short. Sloppy play overall in the second period is what did the Ducks in for this contest.

What’s Next?

The Ducks will take on the St. Louis Blues on Monday at 5 pm PT.
