March 8, 2019— Consecutive 3 Point Nights

Although the Anaheim Ducks had lost their previous game against the St. Louis Blues, Troy Terry had registered 3 assists on 4 of their goals that night. Things would fare a little better for the Ducks when they faced the Montreal Canadiens just two nights later.

Terry’s 3 point night against Montreal may have been slightly overshadowed by the fact that Max Jones scored his first NHL goal. Nevertheless, the Ducks wouldn’t have been set up to win 8-2 if not for Terry’s goal and 2 assists on the night.

Terry developed great chemistry with Adam Henrique later in the season, and it was no surprise when Troy Terry set up Henrique for the Ducks second goal of the night. In a game of back and forth, Henrique got the puck to Terry, who spun it out of the corner, giving the puck back to Rico. Fighting his way through a little bit of traffic in front of Carey Price, he scored his third goal in as many games.

Late in the second period, Terry had the opportunity to register his second point of the night in the form of a goal. The Ducks had possession of the puck, and Nick Ritchie lost it. It looked as though Montreal was about to clear the puck, but Cam Fowler used his speed to pull it onto his stick and out of harm’s way. Troy Terry positioned himself in front of the net, putting himself in the perfect situation to tap Fowlers pass right in the net.

Already up 6-2 late in the third period, the Anaheim Ducks didn’t let up and took the opportunity presented to them to score their 7th goal of the night. The puck was picked up by Carey Price, who attempted to get it back to his teammates. Nevertheless, he misjudged his pass and essentially gave the puck to Troy Terry. Adam Henrique swiftly positioned himself in front of the net giving Terry the perfect amount of room for a beautiful pass. Before Price could position himself back in the net, Henrique wired it home.

Jones would score his first NHL goal of the night just a few minutes later, and the Anaheim Ducks would go on to win the game 8-2. It was one of their best games of the season, showing that they had grown together as a team and utilized their time together wisely to build chemistry and find their rhythm.
