Second Star: Tim Jackman, RW (3 SOG, 5 Hits, 21 PIM)

Jackman isn’t getting this for the penalty minutes. The Ducks were failing to generate chances throughout the game, so Bruce Boudreau put his lines in a blender, and Jackman actually got promoted to the second line for a few shifts. Throughout the game (when he did play, as he only got 6:51 of ice time), Jackman generated good offensive chances, whether it was on the fourth line early or the second line late. He provided a nice jolt of energy for the Ducks outside of a disappointing performance from the rest of the team. Jackman brought it, and he did create positive things on the ice when he wasn’t taking penalties. For this game, that definitely gets my second star.
