Anaheim Ducks News: Max Comtois has been called up from the San Diego Gulls.
Though the Anaheim Ducks have been playing a stronger defensive play, lead by no other than both Josh Manson‘s physicality and Cam Fowler‘s offensive presence, they have both managed to win games using both their strong suits of presence. With outstanding plays being lead by John Gibson, from toe saves to puck handling, Gibson has been very impressive lately and seems to actually have defensive support in front.
Offensively the Ducks have been able to get assistance from the defensemen, Fowler’s game-winner against Arizona was impeccable. Hampus Lindholm‘s 2 assists have him tied for 1st in points with Ondrej Kase, who also carries two assists.
Getzlaf potted the game-winner off a feed from Kase to make it a breakaway and stickhandled his way into the net with Aaron Dell way out the crease. The incredible play gave fans the humble gloat, plus a win against the rival San Jose Sharks.
The Detroit Red Wings are coming from a surge of offensive madness, with Anthony Mantha having an extremely rare four-goal game. Mantha started with just scoring a natural hat-trick to give his team a 3-2 lead, then the Stars tied the game up. That’s where Mantha realized he wasn’t done with the Stars yet, scoring another one to give his team the lead with just 54 seconds remaining left in the game.
With the face-off win by Dylan Larkin and the feed from Filip Hronek, Mantha was set up for the perfect one-timer shot which gave the Red Wings the one-goal lead, gave Mantha the game-winner, a four-goal game. It was definitely a win for Red Wings fans to remember.
