Canadiens beat Ducks to snap two-game skid

Saku Koivu doesn't want to think about the possibility his team's visit to Bell Centre on Thursday may have been his last. But if it was it was a great way for the former Montreal Canadiens captain to go out. Koivu's Anaheim Ducks weren't able to get him a win Thursday as Tomas Plekanec had a goal and two assists and Carey Price made 31 saves to lead the Canadiens...

Teemu Selanne autographs tattoo of Teemu Selanne

I'm not really a fan of dudes getting tattooed with images of other dudes — even if they are your sports idol or Yosemite Sam — but this tattoo of NHL star  Teemu Selanne is pretty awesome. And it just got more awesome. One guy in Montreal decided to get Selanne tattooed onto his arm with the Anaheim Ducks logo by the side and — with the Ducks in Montreal for a...

The Evolution of Ryan Getzlaf’s hairline & the 5 best bald NHLers

As a fellow baldy, I can relate to Ryan Getzlaf on one thing. The Ducks’ centre, all-star, and captain is losing his hair in his twenties. I know the feeling. But it’s not all bad, being bald. Actually, you get…Read more →The post The Evolution of Ryan Getzlaf’s hairline & the 5 best bald NHLers appeared first on The Hockey Daily.

Price has 31 saves and Canadiens top Ducks 4-1

Tomas Plekanec, Michael Bournival, Brian Gionta and Rene Bourque also scored for Montreal (6-4-0). Patrick Maroon scored for Anaheim (7-3-0), while Jonas Hiller made 21 saves. After pressure by the Canadiens to start the game, Bournival scored his second of the season...

Habs playing musical defencemen

The Canadiens have gone from playing musical chairs with their young defencemen to playing musical cities. Rookies Jarred Tinordi and Nathan Beaulieu have been sharing a spot opposite veteran Francis Bouillon on the third defence pair. The challenge has been to give each young player enough ice time to develop and the Canadiens have come up with a solution that has them commuting...

Versatile forward Silfverberg settling in with Ducks

Jakob Silfverberg got a call from Rome shortly after he learned he had become a member of the Anaheim Ducks as part of the trade that saw the Ottawa Senators acquire Bobby Ryan. It came from All-Star defenseman and now-former teammate Erik Karlsson, who himself was just coming to terms with the news. "He was obviously very shocked at the moment, and so was I," said Karlsson...

Montreal Bests Ducks 4-1

So far not so good on this eight game road trip.  Two games down, two losses in a row.  First a 4-2 loss to Toronto and then a 4-1 loss to Montreal.   Ouch.  This was a team who put together seven wins in a row to tie a franchise record and now they cannot find the net.  Having the power play elude them is not helping either. "We didn’t play fast, and we didn’t...

Longer Suspensions Needed?

from Roy MacGregor of the Globe and Mail, Anaheim Ducks winger Teemu Selanne, the NHL’s elder statesman at 43 and perhaps the most widely respected player in today’s game, said in Montreal the suspensions handed out to the likes of Kaleta are inadequate. “I don’t think they’re enough,” Selanne told reporters. “The next night, the same thing happens.” ...

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) -- Ryan Getzlaf scored the winner, Frederik Andersen made 26 saves and the Anaheim Ducks earned the first victory of their eight-game road trip, a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.

Ducks-Senators Preview

The Anaheim Ducks have cooled off in Canada. Visiting the nation's capital could get them untracked. The Ducks attempt to avoid a third straight loss at the beginning of their longest road trip of the season when they face the Ottawa Senators again Friday night. Anaheim (7-3-0) entered this eight-game trip having tied a franchise record with seven straight victories. It didn...

Ducks-Canadiens Preview

The Anaheim Ducks and Montreal Canadiens would both like to forget about Tuesday night. After both teams blew 2-0 leads in their latest losses, they'll try to bounce back Thursday night in Montreal. The Ducks (7-2-0) won seven in a row before Tuesday's 4-2 loss at Toronto. The streak would still be alive had Anaheim been able to hold a lead after Nick Bonino and Mathieu...

Time for new news

For the second day in a row, the headlines are still focussing on Lars Eller’s comments Tuesday night. Yes from Tuesday night. Today is Thursday. At this point, is this just a matter of people looking for something to be upset about; simply looking for controversy? Yes, yes it is. Continue reading "Time for new news"
