On the Duck Pond:
It only took three times (and a change of venue!) but the Ducks finally defeated the Coyotes. After two consecutive 5-4 shootout losses in Phoenix, the miniseries came to Anaheim where everything changed.
The Ducks and Jonas Hiller were able to procure a 2-0 shutout on Wednesday night. In a case of very strange fuzzy math, the Ducks and Coyotes split the three game series with four points each.
Anaheim continued their recent trend of scoring first with Corey Perry getting what would be the eventual game winner at 7:10 of the first period. He put the puck behind Jason LaBarbera, who was in net instead of Mike Smith.
LaBarbera stopped everything else, including a penalty shot by Andrew Cogliano in the second period.
The only other puck that went in was Ryan Getzlaf's empty netter with less than a minute remaining in the game. That made it 2-0 and sealed the victory for Anaheim.
"That was a much better defensive effort," said Getzlaf. "Our...

Jonas Hiller faced only 18 shots in his first shutout of the season, Corey Perry scored in the first period and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Phoenix Coyotes 2-0 on Wednesday night for their ninth straight home victory.
The teams met for the third straight time in a five-day span, following a pair of 5-4 shootout victories by the Coyotes in Phoenix on Saturday and Monday.
Anaheim has made two entry level signings this week.
First, they signed center Charlie Sarault to a three year contract that was announced on Tuesday. Sarault, 21, currently leads the Ontario Hockey League in scoring for the Sarnia Sting.

The Anaheim Ducks have reportedly signed Ryan Getzlaf to an eight-year, $66M contract ($8.25M cap hit). As The Fourth Period reported earlier, both Getzlaf and 2011 Hart Trophy-winner Corey Perry were set to hit unrestricted free agency this summer; this … Continue reading →The post Ryan Getzlaf, Ducks Agree On Enormous New Deal appeared first on Committed Indians.
Jonas Hiller turned aside all 18 Phoenix shots and Ryan Getzlaf posted an empty-net goal and an assist as the Anaheim Ducks blanked the Phoenix Coyotes 2-0. Corey Perry had the Ducks’ other goal.
SPIN: Perhaps Hiller’s demise was a little exaggerated. He rode the Ducks’ coattails at the start of the season but got replaced by Victor Fasth between the pipes. Hiller was able...

GLENDALE, Ariz. Mike Smith didn't address reporters after Thursday's 6-3 loss to St. Louis at Jobing.com Arena, so it's hard to gauge whether he was more upset with his own play or the play of the team in front of him.
Either one was fair game after the Coyotes reached the midpoint of the season with one of their poorest performances all year.
After facing the same team for three straight games, the Anaheim Ducks should be eager for the chance to extend their home winning streak against a different opponent Friday night.
The Ducks look for a 10th straight victory at Honda Center while also trying to continue their home success against a Calgary Flames team seeking a season-high third consecutive win.
