Jackman did a lot of heavy-lifting for the Ducks, replacing Perry on the top line for shifts. He set up Kesler’s second goal and scored the huge game-tying goal. His energy was evident on the ice, as he was throwing his body and winning puck battles in the dirty areas. Jackman has proven his value to the team by being more than just a physical presence in the lineup: he recorded a multi-point outing, and his line would dictate play with him on it (16 shots for, six against during 5-on-5 play).
