On the winning goal, Duchene dribbled the puck into the corner and sent a pass to Barrie, who was standing in front of the net and tipped it past goalie Eddie Lack. The defenceman did a little shuffle dance before his teammates mobbed him.
Daniel Sedin recorded his 800th NHL point with an assist in the first period. His twin brother, Henrik, reached that milestone on Oct. 15 at Philadelphia.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
