CALGARY, Alberta -- Anaheim Ducks winger Daniel Winnik is making an early case that he was the NHL's best free-agent signing in the offseason. Winnik scored just eight goals between the Colorado Avalanche and San Jose Sharks in 2011-12, but the rugged forward already has four in two games for the Ducks, including two in Monday night's 5-4 victory over the Calgary Flames in the Scotiabank Saddledome. Center Ryan Getzlaf, who played junior hockey for the Western Hockey League's Calgary Hitmen, also scored twice as the Ducks started the season with back-to-back wins for the first time since 2006-07. "I think we've got a little more balanced scoring this year than we've had in years past obviously with the third line playing the way they are right now chipping in," Getzlaf said. "We don't want to have to score that many goals to win, but we'll take whatever we can on the road right now." Monday's clash featured some wild swings...

Daniel Winnik and Ryan Getzlaf each scored two goals as the Anaheim Ducks edged the Calgary Flames 5-4 on Monday night.
Saku Koivu had the other goal for Anaheim, which opened the season with two road wins and will enjoy a rare three-day rest in this year's compressed schedule before hosting Vancouver in its home opener Friday.
Signed as a free agent last summer, Winnik has...
It's been quite some time since I was able to track down and successfully acquire one of the 50 Ryan Getzlaf '10-'11 Dominion Ruby Autos. However, that all changed early in December when the below appeared for auction. I couldn't let it slip by me and for just over half a blaster I landed my fifth of these beauts.Numbered 01/50, I really can't get enough of these...
The Ducks have determined that goaltender Viktor Fasth is now ready to back up Jonas Hiller. They have recalled the netminder from Norfolk, where he was sent during training camp to get some game time in.
Fasth had been recovering from a groin injury and with no pre-season games this year, needed a couple of games under his belt before Anaheim felt comfortable with him in...
He might be the oldest player in the NHL, but he is still better than guys half his age. Teemu Selanne, 42 1/2, had two goals and two assists to help the Ducks defeat the Canucks 7-3 in their opening game of the season. He earned the number one star of the game and star of the whole NHL opening night for his efforts.
What is even scarier? Hearing Selanne, who is the oldest...
Vanek is surreal right now. No clue who Daniel Winnik even is. Blue's are next level.
Goal of the night
Flyers 0-3. Not saying that is a big deal, but if the Pens started 0-3 we'd be blogging live from the Smithfield Street Bridge. Sucks to suck, bros.
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...
Sick patches and Dominion go hand-in-hand. This newest addition is no exception and was had a couple of months back for around $7-8. Bobby Ryan is my second favorite hockey player and second collecting interest when it comes to hockey.Numbered 03/25, this AMAZING patch seems out of place for a 25-card print-run. With regards to the inaugural release of Dominion, the "PATCH"...
Ageless wonder Teemu Selanne helped the Anaheim Ducks kick off their season in impressive fashion.
The Calgary Flames' opener didn't go nearly as well.
The Ducks look to make it two in a row Monday night as they face the Flames, who try to avoid dropping their first two home games for the first time in five seasons.
Even at 42, Selanne appears to have plenty left in the...

An unfortunate way to start a shortened season, the Calgary Flames fell to the Anaheim Ducks in a close game Monday night. The Flames, who were down 3-0 in the first period, found a way to battle hard and tie the game. At the end of the day, their inability...
