I completely agree, the Ducks weren't the best team and they needed a bit of luck to win. However, as I'm sure you know, that never say die attitude, where a team makes their own luck, is something we've seen in the past and it's an attribute only the best teams have.

Winning when you aren't the best team, takes a ton of heart and it really makes me proud to see this team achieving that type of win.

Also, it's been a log time (probably 06-07) since I've seen the Ducks play this much like a team. They're winning because EVERYONE is contributing. It's wonderful to watch.

Souray is the clear cut #1 on this team, Murray's best signing

Hoping Perry starts to get it together soon. We need him.

Also hope Fowler can come back soon

Fowler and Frankie have something to say about that.

But I agree, Souray has been great

I after this road trip Rackell is gone its obvious the staff is working with him on some things before he goes back.
But those lines arent bad i could see Etem sitting next game for Rackells final chance

No argument from me. I was proud of this team tonight. Ugly or not, they put in the effort(and were clearly tired) and battled across the finish line.

Souray and Beauchemin complement each other perfectly. I just hope his health and conditioning hold, he's been great for the team. And I pray he doesn't get pissed enough to fight.

I'm not sure there is a team in the league that would prefer Souray over Fowler. Even for just a single season.

Also, I'd point out Souray's D partner. Then I'd point out Allen.

I love the way Souray is playing, but when Fowler was healthy, he was the best player on the ice most nights

In a statement just released jointly by Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr, the league and NHLPA are "filing suit to rescind all 3 points awarded in tonight's ANA-STL game". They were quoted as saying, "nobody deserves points for that game!"

That had to be one of the ugliest, albeit entertaining games I've seen in years. Hopefully no young goalies watched that game. They could have nightmares for many years to come.

Souray has definitely stepped it up since his first couple of games. Let's hope that play lasts as long as his contract.

A lot of people are praising Souray but man he makes me tense sometimes. I feel he is doing a great job, I'm not bashing him whatsoever, but his lack of mobility and his tendency to dump the puck around the boards is almost too easy to read. There were several times a blues player made it to the puck uncontested because they read what Souray was going to do. I will admit though he continues to surprise me with his little dekes when he is standing completely still to get the puck around an oncoming player and pass it out of the zone. But if he gets caught while doing that... scary. I liked the signing and I like how he has played but until i get use to his style, which is pretty nonchalant looking, ill always be tense.

In a 60 minute game there are always a few nice plays. But when mistakes are being made all over the place and the puck is bouncing like crazy you are going to see a lot more of what looks like nice plays that never should have happened.

Listened to the first period on my way to work and kinda watched in and out. Seemed like another ugly one but will take it. Hopefully they work on some things and can start better next game.

I think DVM nailed it. Souray and Beauchemin are good complements. I think they have both done a good job of supporting each other, and making up for each other's mistakes. As a pair, I think they have been our best.

This game day thread reads like a speed date session between a bunch of schizophrenic bi-polar drama queens who took too many bad cocktails of Xanax and crystal Meth.

Looks like Hagen Daas reads the board, remember how many times we all said Koivu should get more shootout chances in the last few years? He's got a pair of filthy Finnish mitts on him.

Speaking of filthy mitts, another 4 pt night for Teemu. Absolutely ridiculous. I want to know what Sirpa is feeding him at night, because it's obvious she's a witch and she's keeping him from aging with some crazy Finnish voodoo magic.

It's too passive. Giving a pp time is a ****ing stupid strategy.

this. i've never understood this.. lets give the best nhl players on a team time and space.. why.. pressure them and make them make plays under pressure. sure a few times they'll execute but most of the time the best PK's are the aggressive ones
