"We were just still talking on the bench about, 'OK, it's a tie game. Let's get this thing (under control), stay the course, do that,' and next it's 3-2," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It just went boom, boom. They got the goal, and the crowd got into it, and then the rest is history."

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has acquired defensemen Jesse Blacker and third-round and seventh-round selections in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft from Toronto in exchange for center Peter Holland and right wing Brad Staubitz. The third-round pick becomes a second-round selection should certain conditions be met. The 2014 seventh-round pick returns to Anaheim after originally being sent to Toronto with right wing Ryan Lasch in exchange for center David Steckel.
ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has recalled center Peter Holland from the Norfolk Admirals, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). In addition, the Ducks have reassigned goaltender Frederik Andersen and defenseman Sami Vatanen to Norfolk.
Andersen, 23 (10/2/89), appeared in seven contests with Anaheim, going 6-1-0 with a 1.66 goals-against average (GAA) and .952 save percentage (SV%). He won his first six games from Oct. 20-Nov. 10, marking the first time since December 1993 that a goaltender won his first six career contests (Toronto’s Damian Rhodes from Mar. 22, 1991-Dec. 2, 1993). At the time of his assignment, Andersen ranked fourth in the NHL in GAA and fifth in SV% (min. five appearances), while leading all rookies in most statistical categories. The 6-4, 230- pound netminder began the season with Norfolk, going 2-0-0 with a 0.96 GAA and .971 SV%, including a shutout on Oct. 11 vs. Binghamton. The Herning, Denmark native was recalled to Anaheim on Oct. 18.
Viktor Fasth returned from IR thus thus the reason why Andersen was sent down.
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Leading the overall standings with 27 points thanks to a 13-3-1 record certainly answers the call for a strong start -- and then some. And as Boudreau pointed out, they needed a strong start given the Pacific Division they play in, where San Jose, Phoenix, Vancouver and Los Angeles is hot on their trail.
No question, the star duo of Ryan Getzlaf (18 points) and Corey Perry (17 points) is doing its usual thing, leading the team in scoring, but what has made the difference in terms of consistency is the ability of the support group to provide impact, the likes of forwards Mathieu Perreault (14 points), Nick Bonino (10 points) and Dustin Penner (team-leading plus-15).
In fact, of the 17 Ducks forwards who have dressed for at least a game this season, all but one of them have averaged double digits in ice time, a testimony to the way Boudreau rolls four lines, more than many teams.
"I've always believed in the Boston philosophy, that you can't win with just two lines, or three lines, that you need four lines going," Boudreau said, crediting GM Bob Murray for giving him the assets to employ four lines.
