It almost looked too easy at times Friday. Not only did the Ducks win battles for loose pucks all around the ice, but they won the races to them, too, no insignificant feat against a team with the hyper-speed ability of the Carolina Hurricanes.
So maybe the Ducks’ 4-2 victory at Honda Center shouldn’t have come as a complete surprise since it was, after all, their fourth consecutive home win to start the season and their sixth in eight games overall. Maybe, just maybe, they’ve gotten the hang of this whole faster-paced game thing now.
“For us to come in and be able to skate with them and be fortunate enough to come out on top, it reinforces what we’re trying to build and lets us leave the rink with a little bit of extra confidence,” Ducks coach Dallas Eakins said. “The group has really embraced how we want to play.”
The Ducks are 6-2-0
