The Ducks got off to the start they were hoping for with a 3-1 Gm. 1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings. The game was tied 1-1 through two periods until the ageless wonder, Teemu Selanne, snapped a perfect dart past Wings goalie Jimmy Howard for the game-winning goal. The goal was Selanne's 10th post-season game winner and eighth as a Duck. The game was extremely intense and very easily co...

Quick's play overshadowed by blunder, Selanne leads Ducks

If not for Jonathan Quicks outstanding goaltending performance Tuesday night in St. Louis, the defending Stanley Cup Champions would have found themselves down by more than just a goal after the first period. Quick was outstanding stopping 13 shots in the opening frame and 40 in the game, before his miscue behind the net in overtime led to the game-winning shorthanded goal by the...

Teemu Selanne snipes Jimmy Howard

Teemu Selanne may be the oldest player currently in the NHL, but he has still got it.  Selanne let this bomb go early in the third period on the power play to give the Anaheim Ducks the lead 2-1.  Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard was partially screened by his defenseman Danny DeKeyser, and he never saw the shot.  It was perfectly placed and the Finnish Flash showed that he...

Howard must stand tall

For the Red Wings to advance in these Stanley Cup playoffs, goalie Jimmy Howard must be better. Especially now that rookie defenseman Danny DeKeyser is out for the year with a broken thumb. Since his arrival late in the regular season, DeKeyser has stabilized the defense, and his loss will be difficult for the Wings to overcome, unless Howard elevates his game. Leading 4-1 nearly...

Anaheim Ducks Corey Perry kicks Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard in the head (Video)

It's not often that we get to see NHL goalies getting kicked in the head but during game one of Tuesday night's Anaheim Ducks/Detroit Red Wings first round playoff series, Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard took a skate to the head. The blow was delivered by Anaheim defender Corey Perry: (Courtesy of It's Always Sunny in Detroit)

League should consider intent when penalizing

Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry is an enigma -- a gifted scorer who has an edge but can't seem to play a clean, physical game. During the second period of the Ducks' 3-1 victory over the Red Wings on Tuesday, Perry skated across the Wings crease, in between goalie Jimmy Howard and defenseman Nik Kronwall. Perry, in trying to avoid Howard, leaped up in air and clipped...

(Video) Corey Perry Goalie interference on Jimmy Howard

This could have been a very dangerous play, which could have had a bad end result as Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry's skate was very close to the head area of Detroit Redwings goalie Jimmy Howard. Obviously, it wasn't what I would call a deliberate or a dirty play, it was just a dangerous play. Perry was doing what all good forwards do, he was going hard to the net. Goalies...

Corey Perry Kicks Jimmy Howard in the Head During Game 1: Video

Corey Perry has never been one to shy away from playing the role of irritant when the Detroit Red Wings and Anaheim Ducks get together. And the Ducks veteran was up to his old tricks again Tuesday during Game 1 of the teams’ Western Conference playoff series. In the second period of the game, Perry had a scoring chance in close on Wings goalie Jimmy Howard. Howard made the save...

Video: Detroit Red Wings Gustav Nyquist scores the game winner

The Detroit Redwings Gustav Nyquist will go down as the guy who shot the game-winning goal against Anaheim on Thursday night in OT. The power-play was spurred on by a beautiful toe-drag by Valtteri Flippula who set up the shot. The 5-4 victory was somewhat ugly for the Red Wings who took Game 2 of their quarterfinal series. They blew a three-goal third period lead to set up what...
