Anaheim Ducks News for Monday - Ducks lose 5-0

Well that was quick.  The two game winning streak was stopped by the Dallas Stars.  The Ducks had the opportunity to take control of the game early on, and then let it slip away.  In the end Giguere was pulled after the second period, and the Ducks still looked liked they would have preferred to been somewhere else.  Here are the reports from the game.

Official Ducks Game Coverage

Just when the Ducks looked like they were on the road to recovery in this young season, the Dallas Stars came along and slashed their tires. 

Dallas scored three goals within just over five minutes of each other in the second period to jump out to a 4-0 lead that ultimately resulted in a 5-0 whitewashing of the Ducks at Honda Center.

"It's obviously not the type of game we wanted to see, especially after the last couple where we thought we were making strides and starting to do some good things out on the ice," said Ducks captain Chris Pronger. "Today as a group we weren’t able to accomplish anything."
The Ducks (6-8-2) came into the game with a two-game winning streak after victories at home against Columbus and on the road Saturday at Phoenix. Dallas (6-6-2) had lost three straight and was able to avoid its first four-game losing streak since 2003.

Mike Ribeiro put Dallas on top 1-0 after one period with a power play goal with just 24 seconds left, deflecting a loose puck past J.S. Giguere.

The Dallas Stars are quickly turning into a nightmare scenario for the Ducks.

After winning three of the final four games between the teams last season, including one in a shootout, Dallas has manhandled the Ducks twice this season. The latest drubbing came Monday night, a 5-0 pasting at Honda Center that snapped a modest two-game Ducks winning streak, as well as an ugly three-game Stars losing skid.

"Obviously, that wasn't the type of game we wanted to see, especially after the last couple, where we thought we were making some strides," Ducks captain Chris Pronger said. "We just weren't able to accomplish anything."

Now that a rough October is in the distance, the Ducks started the new month with two victories and actually went into Monday night's game against the Dallas Stars with a chance to take over first place in the Pacific Division.
It doesn't say much about the jumbled mess that is the Pacific, given the Ducks were also trying to climb back to .500. Still, they were feeling as good about themselves as they have in weeks.

And then came the game.
Dallas again brought the worst out of the Ducks as the Stars took a late first-period lead and blew the game wide open in the second to deal Anaheim its most lopsided loss of the season, 5-0, at the Honda Center.

MVN Game Coverage

In the first meeting of the season between these two teams, Dallas played a team that didn’t seem to show up and Dallas beat the Ducks 3-1.  Tonight was no different.  Dallas had lost the previous three games.  The Ducks had won their last two games, but no momentum seemed to come with them from Phoenix.

Stars forward Mike Modano has 1,231 career points, just one short of matching Phil Housley’s record for U.S.-born players.  His quest to tie and beat that record has been slow in coming this season.  It made zero progress against the Ducks this evening, in spite of the Stars 5-0 win.
