Anaheim Clinches Western Conference in Win over LA

All Anaheim needed was a point in order to clinch the Western Conference, but they got two in a 4-3 shootout victory over Los Angeles. “They all knew they just needed a point,” said Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau. “We never talked about it, but you could tell after the game was over, they all knew. Some of them were high-fiving each other. That’s a pretty big accomplishment for...

Ducks shoot down Kings, win Western Conference title

The Ducks needed one point in the standings Saturday night at Staples Center to clinch the best record in the Western Conference and earn the not-so-small bonus of locking up home-ice advantage for at least the first three rounds of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Kings needed to hold the Ducks to four goals or less in order to claim at least a share of the Jennings Trophy as the...

Oilers Slick by Ducks 4-2

Oh Canada……well, if nothing else the Anaheim Ducks can console themselves that they are done with Edmonton for the remainder of the season.   The 4-2 loss to the Oilers was their third meeting in 10 days, only once getting a win. Those are points the Ducks need if they want to make certain they stay on top of the Pacific Division.   The Oilers may be at the bottom of the entire...

Hockey Talk Today

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, - I can still see the Anaheim Ducks going hard for Vancouver Canucks centre Ryan Kesler this summer. Anaheim has centre Jakob Silfverberg, big winger Devante-Smith Pelly or speedy Emerson Etem, a defenceman like Sami Vatanen or Luca Sbisa and a first-round draft pick to offer - People say there will be 4,000 obstructed view seats...

Ducks send Etem to minors; Koivu could return

The Ducks demoted young wings Emerson Etem and Devante Smith-Pelly to minor league Norfolk, Va., on Wednesday. Coach Bruce Boudreau said that though each of the 21-year-olds will benefit from increased playing time, the move is also a reminder of the first-place teams demand for consistency. Etem scored his sixth goal Tuesday, but also let Dallas Cody Eakin skate past him to score...

Boston Beats Anaheim in Shootout

My apologies for the lack of a Boston/Anaheim recap.  My aunt Dorothy turned 90.  Sometimes family trumps even hockey.  Ducks lost in a shootout, 3-2.  Devante Smith-Pelly got his first of the year and Mathieu Perreault gave the Ducks a lead, but a late goal from Zdeno Chara tied things up and sent it to a shootout. The Red Sox clinched the World Series the night before...

Bruins’ Lack of Vision Leads to Defensive Breakdown, Goal Scored by Anaheim’s Devante Smith-Pelly (Video)

The Bruins went down by one goal in first period of Thursday night’s matchup against the Anaheim Ducks, and poor defensive decisions were to blame. Some poor decision-making resulted in the B’s trying to force the puck out of their end. It ended up exactly where they didn’t want it to — on the sticks of the Ducks. Devante Smith-Pelly was able to capitalize on the Bruins...

Anaheim Defeats Colorado 2-1; More Roster Cuts

So far it has been a bi-polar pre-season for the Ducks.   Win one by a landslide.  Lose one by a landslide.    Win a close one.  The Ducks did bounce back nicely after being trolloped by the Kings on Tuesday.  They were able to defeat the Colorado Avalanche, 2-1, in Denver. It was Patrick Roy's debut as a coach for his former Avalanche team.  Even though Paul...

Devo.

Devante Smith-Pelly is one of my favorite Ducks, and a nice young player to put around the excellent core the team has built. He's BIG, hits, skates pretty well, and has a nice shot combined with the ability and willingness to go to the front of the net. He can also contribute to both the power play and penalty kill units.I was fortunate to snag this snazzy and zazzy on-card...

Ducks look to next season

Seven games remain in the season for the Ducks and it is safe to say that they won't replicate the importance or the atmosphere of the four Stanley Cup playoff contests that Nick Bonino took part in last season. The season figures to end for the young center once the final horn sounds in Calgary's Scotiabank Saddledome on April 7. But it would be foolish to say that the...

Ducks Come Back to Defeat Blues 4-3

Ducks' young forwards producing

One recurring Pacific Division topic in the twilight of the 2011-12 season revolves around the Anaheim Ducks' second half resurgence under Bruce Boudreau: What has changed, and why is there such a stark difference from their erratic play in the first half of the season? Obviously Jonas Hiller's minutes in net have vastly improved, as has the level of play from the team...
