The NFHL Game of the Day


Ducks Slide

Maybe we were a bit premature in anointing the Anaheim Ducks as a new power in the Campbell Conference.  The Ducks started the season a perfect 5-0 and were on top of the conference and things were looking bright.  Fast forward a week and things are looking much different.  Tonight, the GM-less Detroit Red Wings shot down the Ducks 5-4, sending Anaheim to their 3rd straight loss.  Detroit scored all 5 goals in the 2nd period, led by Petr Klima's 4th and 5th of the year.  J.J. Daigneault, Randy Gilhen, and Gilles Hamel also contributed goals for Detroit.  Dale Hawerchuk, Ron Greschner, Lindsay Carson, and Mitch Lamoureux scored for the Ducks.  Anaheim still sits 3rd in the conference, trailing the Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets for top spot.
