The Anaheim Ducks hosted the Montreal Canadiens on Halloween for an early 1 PM game. John Gibson was in net against Sam Montembeault.

The Ducks would be without Jakob Silfverberg, who was placed in the NHL COVID protocol.


The Ducks got an early power play and Adam Henrique scored to give the Ducks an early 1-0 lead. The Canadiens then got a power play and Mike Hoffman scored to tie the game up.

Trevor Zegras would then get knocked out of the game after a hit by Cedric Paquette, who would get a 5-min major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct. Vinni Lettieri would cash in on the power play and the Ducks led 2-1. The Ducks also had a 5-on-3 power play, but didn’t convert.

Zegras returned to action at the beginning of the second period, which was filled with tons of penalties. Both teams had chances on the power play, but never team could convert. Late in the period Jake Evans scored and tied the game up at two.

The teams traded chances in the beginning of the third period. Montreal got a power and had a chance to take the lead, but Gibson kept the puck out of the net. Halfway through the period, Ryan Getzlaf would find Troy Terry, who broke past the defense and scored on the backhand.

Montreal would pull there goalie in the final minutes to try to get the tying goal, but Sam Carrick would get an empty net goal to give Anaheim the 4-2 win.


The Ducks were able to build an early lead with two power play goals. The Canadiens did fight back and turn this into a 20 minute hockey game. Anaheim was able to pull away in the third period.

The Ducks won the face-off battle by a whooping 71% to 29%. They outshot Montreal 26-18 and out hit them 22-16. Anaheim had a difficult time generating quality scoring chances during even strength, especially in the second period, but they were able to pull away in the end.

Team Stats/News:

Ryan Getzlaf earned an assist on Troy Terry‘s goal to give him 989 career points as an Anaheim Duck. He passed Teemu Selanne, who held the record before with 988 points.
