First Star: Hampus Lindholm, D (1 G, +2, 4 SOG, 3 Hits, 18:48 TOI)

On a night with very few positives, Lindholm was somehow on the ice for both goals for and only one goal against (the power-play goal, hence the +2 rating). His goal kept the Ducks in the game early, and he made some solid defensive plays in his own end on a night filled with defensive gaffes. The pairing of Lindholm and Manson finished +4 on the night, while the other four defensemen were a collective -10, including a -4 effort from Stoner. Lindholm has grown into the team’s most reliable defenseman this season and is a calming force on the back end. He has room to grow into his game and his frame, but the Ducks may have their blue-line anchor in the young Swede.
