The Streaking Anaheim Ducks

from Elliott Teaford of the OC Register,

The Ducks continued to win the battles they lost as recently as a few weeks ago. They continued to generate the sort of sustained pressure that was missing earlier in the season. They continued to move the puck into the attacking zone with a crispness that was absent last month.

Have they finally found the pace at which they’d like to play?

Well, not quite, but they approached it at times during their 4-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night at Honda Center, their fifth consecutive win and their seventh in their past eight games. Above all, they played under control at a higher tempo and they produced results.

There was still room for improvement, as Coach Randy Carlyle reminded reporters at game’s end, but he acknowledged the Ducks’ game was in a better place than it was earlier in the season. They’ve learned to play their new speed game better. They’re faster, but not frantic, as they once were.
