Ducks lead 1-0 after two

The Ducks continue to lead 1-0 through two periods. There were more penalties in the second, but both teams' penalty killers have been up to the task.

Henrik Lundqvist made a few great saves in that period, and he might not make a better one the rest of the season than the beauty he had on Bobby Ryan after a tic-tac-toe play from Anaheim's top line. The Rangers had more pressure in the final minutes of the period, but still only have 12 shots on net.

Andrew Cogliano not only has the lone goal, but he's been Anaheim’s best player. He's got four shots on net, and three of them have been great chances. One in the second in particular could have found the top right corner of the net if not for a fantastic save from Lundqvist.

Ducks draw first blood on Cogliano goal

After falling behind 2-0 early in the first period Friday night at Hartwall Areena, Andrew Cogliano put the Anaheim Ducks ahead at 9:26 of the opening period here at Globe Arena and they held a 1-0 lead through 20 minutes of a penalty-filled period.

Andrew Gordon went into the right corner and sent a pass to the slot for a wide-open Cogliano. Gordon got blasted into the boards as he let it go, but it was on the mark and Cogliano didn't miss on the one-timer. It was Gordon's third career NHL point, while rookie Devante Smith-Pelly collected the first of his career with a secondary assist.

This game has definitely been full of the rough stuff after both teams lost last night. Even star players have gotten into it -- Corey Perry and Brandon Dubinsky fought (even if they weren't assessed fighting majors), while Ryan Getzlaf and Marian Gaborik got into a shoving match.

Cogliano had another chance alone in front with less than a minute left, but he didn’t have much time to do anything with it. Brian Boyle had the best chance for the Rangers, getting behind the defense for a shot from between the circles that Hiller got a piece of with his right arm/glove.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
