Recap: Ducks End Season on High Note with Defeat of Rival Kings

by Adam Brady @AdamJBrady / AnaheimDucks.com

ANAHEIM - If the final month of the season is any indication, a rare playoff miss would appear to be a blip on the radar rather than a trend for the Anaheim Ducks.

A 5-2 defeat of the rival Kings in Anaheim's regular season finale at Honda Center was the culmination of a respectable push to close a mostly disappointing 2018-19 campaign in which the Ducks will miss the postseason for the first time in seven years and just the third time since 2005.

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

It was only a matter of time before the proverbial ketchup bottle exploded for Ducks winger Rickard Rakell. It just took a little longer than he expected. Rakell was an unstoppable force tonight, recording a natural hat trick in the second period to lead the Ducks to a lopsided 5-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Place on Saturday night. Rakell became just the second player in franchise history to record a natural hat trick in a period on the road, joining Andrew Cogliano, who did it on Jan. 31, 2012 at Phoenix.

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

On this night, Sam Steel truly was Superman.

Steel had the game of his life, becoming just the second rookie in franchise history to score a hat trick to propel the Ducks to a 5-4 victory over the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena on Tuesday. At 21 years, 51 days, he was also the youngest to achieve the feat, besting Bobby Ryan's 21 years, 297 days. (Ryan became the first Ducks rookie to record a hat trick on Jan. 8, 2009 at LA.)

"It's a big night," Steel said after the game. "To get it with the team winning, it's pretty special. Definitely something I'll remember."
