So far, so good for the Ducks, who have won their first two games of the season. That both games were on the road bodes even better for Anaheim.
After a 7-3 victory in Vancouver, the Ducks followed it up with a 5-4 win over the Calgary Flames.
While the game started off well, the Ducks need to learn how to maintain momentum and keep playing hard for the full 60 minutes. Stop me if you have heard that before in prior seasons.
The Ducks started off strong with Ryan Getzlaf getting his first of the year by tipping in Toni Lydman's shot at 1:06 of the first period. The third line of Daniel Winnik, Saku Koivu and Andrew Cogliano continued to impress with Koivu making it 2-0 at 7:23. Winnik got his third of the year at 10:53 and it appeared as if the game would be a blow out.
Not so fast.....
The Flames, who were trounced upon in the home opener the day before against the Sharks, were not about to roll over and play dead.
Curtis Glencross got a power ...
