Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Stephens of the OC Register,
Viktor Fasth conquered his native Sweden the last two years and the Ducks were eager to get him to this continent and give themselves a backup goalie they could count on.
Forget about being a reliable backup. Fasth might be set on taking over the NHL.
Fasth stopped 31 shots for his fourth victory in as many starts and collected his first shutout Wednesday night as the Ducks defeated the Colorado Avalanche, 3-0, at Pepsi Center.
The Ducks (7-1-1) won their fourth in a row to start their six-game trip in style. Fasth, 30, became the first NHL goalie to win his first four games since Nolan Schaefer did it for San Jose in 2005.
Fasth again gave credit to the "guys battling in front of me."
"They make it much easier for me to play back there," he said. "I'm really enjoying playing for these guys. They're incredible in front of me."
