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.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
