With the Oilers already trailing 2-0, Anaheim forward Ryan Getzlaf showed the skills that have made him a top playmaking center in this league. Getzlaf would drive to the net and send a behind-the-back pass down low to Bobby Ryan who would beat Khabibulin.


Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf was a force in tonight's game, dominating the Oilers with his blend of size and skill. Getzlaf would finish the game with four points (0G, 4A) and was named the 'second star' of the game.

In a game lacking many positives for the Edmonton Oilers, one small sign of life was Sam Gagner standing up in a fight with Francois Beauchemin. Gagner was willing to try and provide a spark for his team by taking on the much stronger Beauchemin.

Former Oiler Andrew Cogliano made his first trip back to Rexall since being traded to Anaheim. Cogliano who spent four seasons in Edmonton played in all 82 games in every year he was an Oiler, impressive.

"There's more inside to give than we did tonight. I don't see too many ice bags in the room right now"
