Next up for the Ducks is the second game of their five game homestand, and it comes against another strong Western Conference foe in the St. Louis Blues, who are coming off a 1-0 shootout loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday. St. Louis registered a whopping 43 shots on goal against Jonathan Quick, but the Blues were unable to put any of those attempts past the Los Angeles netminder, who also stopped all three attempts in the shootout. The Ducks will be getting the Blues on the back-end of a back-to-back, as St. Louis will play the Arizona Coyotes on the road the night before. Puck drop will be at 5:00 p.m. PT.

Point Streaks, General Notes:

Ryan Getzlaf saw his four-game point streak to open the 2014-2015 season snapped. However, Perry extended his streak to five games with his third period game-winning goal.

Matt Beleskey saw his three game goal-scoring streak come to an end as well. Lindholm’s two game point streak also ended.

Smith-Pelly, with an assist on Cogliano’s goal, has points in two consecutive games after scoring a goal against the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday. Fowler has assists in three consecutive games.

Kesler led all Ducks’ skaters in time on ice tonight, playing 23:39. Lindholm led the Ducks in the first three games, while Francois Beauchemin led the team in ice time against the Flyers.

Sami Vatanen finished with two more blocked shots for the Ducks, giving him 15 on the season (including nine against the Flyers), which leads the team.
