Morning Free Association: Duck Hunt in reverse

We might have wanted a result similar to this:

We didn’t get that.

Perhaps the result might have been different had Krejci been in, but he wasn’t and Jordan Szwarz is still playing second line center. Nothing against him but he’s not the guy who started the season.

Peter Cehlarik was playing Bergy’s left wing and debuted his new number, 22. It’s not the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything but it’s probably better than his old number, 83.

First Period:

Of course a Duck rookie scores his first ever NHL goal on Tuukka Rask. Kevin Roy

Second Period:

A great save by John Gibson on a Riley Nash shot has him breakdancing like it’s 1983.

Danton Heinen ties it for the B’s nearly halfway through the period.

Of course, this would last for approximately 6 minutes. Keeping with the “first” theme, Josh Manson scored his first goal in 25 games, or since March of last season, to give the Ducks the lead once again.

With only 46 seconds to go, Nick Ritchie scores his first goal in 10 games, making the Ducks lead two goals, 3-1.

They only allowed 3 shots by Anaheim, unfortunately 2 made it into the net.

Third Period:

And then Corey Perry scores.

Honestly at this point, I stopped watching and caring.

Riley Nash had a breakaway chance and was stopped by Gibson twice, once on the original shot, again on the rebound.

Noel Acciari scores a garbage time goal at 19:38 (hey, his first goal on the season), making it 4-2, Ducks. I’m really tired and want to go to bed now.
