It’s military appreciation night at Honda Center. Thank you to everyone who currently serves or who has served in the past.
The Ducks have won three games in a row. They had an emotional win over the Montreal Canadiens. Anaheim was able to break their six game losing streak, but the bigger story was Ryan Getzlaf. The captain earned an assist on Troy Terry‘s goal, which was his 989th career NHL point with the Anaheim Ducks. He passed Teemu Selanne‘s previous record of 988 points with Anaheim.
Anaheim followed up the game against Montreal, with a 4-0 win over the New Jersey Devils. The Ducks scored a few early goals on the power play and never looked back. Trevor Zegras was tripped by P.K. Subban from behind, who used a slew foot to take Zegras down. Subban was fined from the league in the amount of $15,000.
The Ducks recently beat Arizona 3-1. The Coyotes scored in the final seconds to ruin the shutout bid by Anthony Stolarz. John Gibson didn’t play as he was feeling under the weather. He is questionable for tonight.
Anaheim continues to thrive on special teams. The Ducks are 26.2% efficient on the power play, which ranks 8th in the league. Their penalty kill is 84.6% efficient, which ranks 11th in the NHL.
Troy Terry leads the team in scoring with seven goals.
Mason McTavish(ankle) and Simon Benoit were recalled to Anaheim.
Lukas Dostal was reassigned to San Diego.
Trevor Zegras(upper-body) did not play on Friday and he did not practice yesterday per Dan Wood. He is questionable for tonight.
Rickard Rakell left the game against Buffalo holding his left arm and didn’t finish the game. He was placed on the IR with a shoulder injury and is considered week-to-week.
Max Jones(upper body) left the game early in the third period against Calgary as he appeared to be favoring his left arm while being engaged in front of the net. He was also placed on the IR. He had surgery to repair a pectoralis major tendon tear and will be out for 4-6 months.
John Gibson 4-2-2 GAA 2.27 SV% .917 (Confirmed)
