NHL takeaways: Two-goal leads not safe (just ask Canadiens)

Two-goal leads are like hand grenades these days. Nobody seems to want to hold onto them. For the 20th time in this young NHL postseason, a team rallied to erase a two-goal lead. Few have done it with more style or authority than the Boston Bruins did on Saturday at TD Garden. Boston scored five third-period goals -- four in the final 9:04 of regulation -- to rally past the Montreal...

Stars Even the Series; Ducks Lagging

With a chance to take a 3-1 lead in the series, the Ducks short circuited instead and found themselves tied with Dallas after a 4-2 loss on Wednesday night. If the game had only been 20 minutes long, things would have been just fine.  But they are a full 60 minutes long. Despite being without captain Ryan Getzlaf, who missed the game with the nebulous “upper body injury,” they...

Ducks youth stepping up

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau would like to argue against his team's youngest players being the "unsung heroes." Rookies Hampus Lindholm, Patrick Maroon, Frederik Andersen and second-year player Kyle Palmieri might not be as well known as others in the locker room just yet, but in Anaheim, Boudreau's known all along what he's had. Their...

Ducks Clinch Pacific With Win Over Sharks

It’s official.  The Anaheim Ducks have earned their third Pacific Division title (and second in a row) with a 5-2 victory over the Sharks. “It’s cool because it’s a really tough division,” said coach Bruce Boudreau. “When you start out, you have certain goals. One is to win the division, then the conference, then the Presidents’ [Trophy], and then you win every round...

Hockey fights of the week

Welcome to our second to last installment of Hockey Fights of the Week of the 2013-14 season. As we’ve discussed in the past, teams are doing more fighting in the standings than they are on the ice as the season winds down. That’s not to say everyone is playing nice (they’re not), but it does mean that teams are trying to avoid instigating penalties and keep their players out...

Anaheim Tops Kings 2-1

It never gets old defeating the Kings.  As a Ducks fan, any victory over Los Angeles is a sweet one.  In their building?  Even better!  Despite playing in the second of back-to-back games, Anaheim looked like the better rested team in a 2-1 victory on Saturday night at Staples Center. Frederik Andersen got the start in net, as Jonas Hiller played the night before in Colorado...

Ducks Pounce on Panthers 6-2

Consistency has not been the Ducks strong suit of late, and a 6-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Sunday showed the team where they still need to work.  With 11 games left in the season, now is the time to clean up the messy spots, because playoff time is show time. Anaheim got the win, but it could have gone either way in the second period. After three goals, three different...

Chad Johnson, Mike Cammalleri Worth Adding Down The Stretch

When I took a look at the box scores from yesterday’s tilts all I saw was a bunch of yawnstipating schmohawks filling the score sheets! Outside of a handful of regulars like Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf getting their usual helpings o’ goals and assists, guys like Damien Brunner and Patrick Maroon were all I saw! Seriously, Maroon? What is this guy, from an old Bugs Bunny cartoon...

Teemu Selanne, Jakob Silfverberg, Kyle Palmieri and Perry scored during Anaheim's four-goal second period. Patrick Maroon also scored an early goal before leaving the...

Ducks take a bounce-back victory from the Kings

The Ducks hammered out a bruising 2-1 victory over the rival Kings on Saturday night at Staples Center, one night after running and gunning their way to a 6-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche in Denver. Two games, two very different styles of play and two solid results. Crisis averted? Order restored? The Ducks certainly believed so after consecutive victories put a halt to a...

Chicago Blanks Ducks 2-0

The losses keep coming for Anaheim, the latest being a 2-0 shutout by the Chicago Blackhawks who are now just one point away from Anaheim in the overall standings.  Anaheim has now lost three in a row and ended up 1-4-0 on this five game homestand.  They have only one more game before the Olympic break, in Nashville on Saturday.

Tight Victory Over Kings Feels Good

The Ducks had to gut this one out, but the 2-1 victory against the Kings was a hit.  Literally.    The Ducks registered 48 hits to the Kings 24.   Bags of ice had to have been scarce after the game. It was the first of back to back games against their crosstown and divisional rivals.  The first was in front of a sold out, loud, raucous Honda Center.  The second will be...

Ducks take the physical route to a victory over Kings

The Ducks shattered a stereotype or two during their grinding 2-1 victory Thursday over the Kings at the Honda Center, which was to say they flexed their muscles and took a game away from a team that’s generally regarded as being as tough as a night in jail. It was, as Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau would later say, “a man’s game,” a bruising test of wills in the corners and...

Adam McQuaid Energizes Bruins by Dropping Gloves With Anaheim’s Patrick Maroon (Video)

Trailing the Western Conference-leading Anaheim Ducks 3-0 late in the second period Tuesday night, the Boston Bruins were desperately in need of a kick in the butt. Defenseman Adam McQuaid, Boston’s top brawler in Shawn Thornton‘s absence, took it upon himself to provide that spark when he squared off against Ducks winger Patrick Maroon with just under a minute left in the frame...

Ducks Power (Play) Past Bruins 5-2

The first five minutes were all Boston. The Ducks were pinned in their own zone and it seemed only a matter of time before either the Bruins scored or the Ducks took a penalty. Luckily it was the latter, with Matt Beleskey going off for high sticking Dougie Hamilton. The power play was more of the same, as the Ducks could really only clear to the neutral zone before Boston turned...

San Jose Stops Anaheim's Winning Streak

Let us pause now for a moment of silence as the Ducks winning streak has officially died at 10 games..... Ok, now what the heck happened? A team that looked invincible and able to come back from all sorts of odds just looked pedestrian and beatable in a 3-1 loss to San Jose.   The Sharks scouted Anaheim well and knew exactly how to counter them.  And they executed...
