MVN Coverage

For the first time this season the Ducks have put together a five game winning streak. Their fifth in a row came on the road with a 2-1 defeat over the Nashville Predators. The Predators had earned points in seven of their past eight games, the eighth being their January 7th 5-2 loss to the Ducks. The win put the Ducks one point ahead of San Jose, who were scheduled to play Dallas later on in the evening. A Stars win over the Sharks would leave the Ducks in first place in the Pacific Division. A Sharks win would bounce them back over the Ducks into first place.

Predators Coverage

The Predators out shot the Anaheim Ducks 34-16, but were limited to just one goal by Anaheim netminder JS Giguere as the Ducks edged the Predators 2-1 at the Sommet Center on Thursday night.

Anaheim opened the scoring at the 15:12 mark of the first period when it converted its second power-play opportunity of the night. The Predators caught an unfortunate break when Jarred Smithson broke his stick while killing the penalty. The Ducks maintained possession of the puck in the Predators zone, preventing Nashville from making a line change or handing Smithson a new stick from the bench. Anaheim patiently worked the puck around the perimeter, setting up Mathieu Schneider for a slapshot from the left point. With Todd Bertuzzi setting a screen at the top of the goal crease, Brandon Bochenski skated through the slot and redirected Schneider’s shot for his second goal of the season.
