Anaheim Ducks Game Coverage

If you wanted any more indication the resurgent Ducks may be the class of the Pacific Division, you got it tonight.
Two nights after beating division frontrunner San Jose, the Ducks used a dominating second period to dispatch previously second-place Dallas 4-2 at Honda Center. Scott Niedermayer, Todd Marchant,, Ryan Getzlaf and Todd Bertuzzi each had goals, as Niedermayer added two assists to tie his career best with three points.

It was the seventh straight victory at home for the Ducks, and their first win against the Stars after three straight losses. The Ducks are 10-2-2 since Niedermayer rejoined the team on Dec. 16.

Coach Randy Carlyle observed, “Our power play got us some big goals tonight   We were able to shut down their power play  The were 0 for 3.  In the games that we previously lost to them, we lost the specialty teams battles.  It’s amazing how much of a factor that can be in your success.”   That success translated into two points that really mattered.  The Ducks moved one point ahead of Dallas to take second place in the Pacific Division.  They are now one point away from first place San Jose, who lost this evening to Phoenix, something that was cheered lustily by the fans when it was announced.
