The Anaheim Ducks Defeated The Los Angeles Kings In A Pacific Division Battle

from Curtis Zupke of the LA Times,

The Kings and Ducks have always produced a tug-of-war dynamic, spiked with as much hatred as any rivals in the NHL. But they decided to keep their gloves on Friday to exchange different kinds of blows.

The Ducks continued to pull themselves up with a 2-1 win that drew them even with the Kings with 53 points in the Pacific Division. The Kings got pushed further down with their sixth straight loss and no end in sight for an offense that has scored three goals in three games.

Ryan Kesler delivered the game-winner on a deflection with 7:39 to play in the third period and the Ducks fended off the extra-attacker surge by the Kings in front of an announced 17,258 standing-room only crowd at Honda Center.

“That was a huge win for us, coming off the last game and trying to keep this going, keep the momentum going at home for this homestand,” said Adam Henrique, who gave the Ducks a 1-0 lead in the third period. “I thought we played well. They were in a back-to-back situation and we were trying to take advantage of that in the first period and get pucks and bodies to the net. They came back with a push in the second period and I thought we did a good job responding and coming out hard in the third.”

Hockey Is Fun Again For The Colorado Avalanche

from Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post,

Avalanche star Nathan MacKinnon moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss how Colorado went from the worst NHL team of the 21st century to the most fun bunch in town.

The transformation was as quick as that sonic booming shot Kid MacK fired past stunned Ducks goalie Ryan Miller for a score that blew the roof off the Pepsi Center, where there were 16,090 hipsters ahead of the local sports curve. The crowd shouted “Dilly, dilly!” whenever a Anaheim player got sent to the penalty box and raucously celebrated Monday’s 3-1 victory by a Colorado team rapidly being carried back to respectability on the back of MacKinnon.

“He should be up for the Hart Trophy,” Avs defenseman Erik Johnson said, beginning the campaign for MacKinnon as the league’s most valuable player.

Colorado has won seven times in a row. After losing 60 of 82 games last season, the Avs are undefeated thus far in 2018....

When did pro hockey become fun again in Colorado? Maybe it’s impossible to precisely pinpoint the exact moment.

Big Win For The Anaheim Ducks Over The Los Angeles Kings

from Eric Stephens of the OC Register,

The message was laid out in simple terms from a team that is peering through the window at those who currently reside in the playoff positions within the Western Conference.

Hours in front of another tense, fight-filled Freeway Faceoff against the Kings, the Ducks’ Kevin Bieksa offered his to-the-point summation. “That’s a team that we need to catch,” the longtime defenseman said. “This is the best way to do it, by taking two points from them.”

Ah, if it were only that easy. Nothing is in this series that’s often decided by one goal and the Kings weren’t going to fade away at Staples Center on Saturday night, even when they stared at a three-goal deficit.

Nick Shore and Anze Kopitar gave them a look at a dramatic comeback in the third period but Corey Perry’s long-distance goal into an empty net secured a 4-2 win for the Ducks as the rivals kicked off another important stretch in their respective schedules following a bye week.

The Anaheim Ducks Are The Latest Team To Lose To The Vegas Golden Knights

from Eric Stephens of the OC Register,

It doesn’t matter what type of team you put on the ice against the Vegas Golden Knights. A good team or a bad team. An injury-wracked team or a team that’s just about complete.

All of them find a way to lose to a determined first-year expansion group that continues to lead the Pacific Division.

Vegas spotted the Ducks a first-period goal and then systematically got its offense going while cashing in its chances for a fifth straight victory, a 4-1 decision Wednesday night at Honda Center as a season-high overflow crowd of 17,444 watched the NHL’s most improbable story continue to play itself out.

“It’s a long season,” Golden Knights center William Karlsson said. “But I feel confident. I think the whole team feels confident too. We’re just going to try to win more games and see where it ends up.”
