VIDEO: Ducks Get Blanked By Vegas
By Michael Walters
The Anaheim Ducks went to Las Vegas to battle the Golden Knights for a quick one game road trip. The Ducks went with 11 forwards and seven defensemen for their lineup. John Gibson was in net against Logan Thompson.
The Ducks went shorthanded in this one just over four minutes in, but they were able to kill off the penalty. The teams battled back and forth for most of the opening period. The Golden Knights would score first on their second power play with 4:48 left to go in the period.
Early in the second period Max Comtois had a chance to tie the game on a breakaway, but he ran out of room on his attempt.
Jamie Drysdale had to leave the game after he took a hit into the boards. It appeared he hurt his shoulder.
The Ducks had a power play chance, but Reilly Smith scored shorthanded to make it 2-0. Vegas would add two more goals towards the end of the period to make it a 4-0 score.
Anthony Stolarz started in net for the Ducks to begin the third period. The Ducks got a power play early in the period and Adam Henrique nearly scored, but the Ducks couldn’t convert. Anaheim created some chances in the third period, but still was unable to get one past Thompson. Vegas won 4-0.
The Ducks lost this one 4-0, but they played a decent game 5-on-5. They had a 51.11% CF and 47.69 FF. Anaheim also outshot Vegas 29-22, which was the first time the Ducks outshot anyone this season. The special teams did hurt the Ducks again. Vegas scored on the power play and also shorthanded in this contest.
The Ducks seem to be playing better in some aspects of their game, but they still can’t find a way to win. Anaheim has now lost seven in a row and only have three points in eight games so far this season. The Ducks are at the bottom of the league, so they have no where to go but up.
The Ducks return home to face the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday at 5 PM.
