Official Ducks Game Coverage

In the morning before they were to face Buffalo at Honda Center, the Ducks learned that Scott Niedermayer would soon be returning to the team.
Then they went out and played like he was already back.

Though the players were informed hours prior, Niedermayer’s comeback out of a retirement indecision was announced by the team less than a half hour before the Ducks began their dismantling of a streaking Sabres team 4-1 in front of a sellout crowd of 17,147 at Honda Center

Andy McDonald had a goal and an assist, Mathieu Schneider and Corey Perry scored power-play goals, and the Anaheim Ducks snapped a 10-game winless streak against the Buffalo Sabres with a 4-1 victory Wednesday night.

About a half-hour before the opening faceoff, Ducks general manager Brian Burke announced that playoff MVP Scott Niedermayer decided to return to the defending Stanley Cup champions after spending five months contemplating retirement. Burke's remarks were replayed before the game on the video board the game and again during the first intermission, with the sellout crowd of 17,174 crowd roaring its approval.

The Ducks dominated the second period, outshooting the Sabres 12-0 through the first 13 minutes of the period and took a 2-1 lead when Schnieder scored his third goal of the season, this one coming from the top of the right circle. It could have been 3-1 at that point, but Buffalo goaltender Ryan Miller dove and covered a loose puck, which was slowly rolling toward the goal line. It came within inches of giving the Ducks another goal.

Clearly the news of his anticipated return gave the team a boost.
