A Trip Around The Hockey World

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, - Where has Phil Kessel gone in the midst of the Toronto Maple Leafs’ eight-game losing streak? Your best players have to be your best players, but he’s missing in action at $8 million a year.

The Trades Today

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, In a clear sign that they are trying to win it all this year, the Anaheim Ducks dealt a pair of players from the fringes of their roster – popular but controversial winger Dustin Penner and goaltender Viktor Fasth – to clear up the salary cap space to grab veteran defenceman Stephane Robidas from the Dallas Stars. The Ducks...

The Fangover: Predators 2, Ducks 5

The Nashville Predators enter the NHL's Winter Olympic Break winless in their last three. Last Saturday, the Predators fell to St. Louis 4-3 in a shootout and then lost to Minnesota 3-2 in overtime Thursday. Saturday night, the hockey gods did not favor Nashville, as they lost to the Anaheim Ducks 5-2.  Carter Hutton made allowed four goals on 23 shots, but none of which...

Red Wings-Ducks Preview

The Anaheim Ducks have been outstanding at both ends on their home ice, but they might have to continue their run without Ryan Getzlaf and Jonas Hiller. The Detroit Red Wings will certainly try to rattle goaltender John Gibson should he make his debut Sunday night when the Ducks look to remain unbeaten in regulation at the Honda Center. Hampus Lindholm scored twice and Getzlaf...

Top +/- Rating

Only six days ago, I wrote about Francois Beauchemin of the Anaheim Ducks holding down the top +/- rating in the NHL.  He has been passed by his linemate.  Hampus Lindholm the Swedish rookie now has a +22 +/- rating.  This puts him one point ahead of Beauchemin.  Lindholm is a highly regarded prospect who was selected sixth overall in the 2012 entry draft.  He has pushed himself...

Ducks are happy to be back home

Without the benefit of their home crowd in crunch time, the Ducks gave up a decisive third-period goal in Florida, lost a shootout in Carolina and watched Sidney Crosby and Pittsburgh strike for three goals in less than five of the final minutes.

Panthers Pounce on Hapless Ducks

And so the winning streak ends for the Anaheim Ducks.   The 3-2 loss to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday was hopefully a wake up call for a team that fell asleep at the wheel and veered off course, but not before the Panthers pounced. Florida, a team dwelling at the bottom of the NHL standings, so much so that they replaced their coach a couple games ago, decided that enough...

For the first 8 minutes of the Ducks’ return to Anaheim, coach Bruce Boudreau thought he saw the residual effects of an eight-game, 15-day road trip.
