Ducks’ power play keeps them close, then Jamie Drysdale wins it in OT

Wouldn’t that be funny?

Not funny, ha ha. But funny in a good way.

The Ducks’ power play last season was the worst in NHL history, hitting an unfortunate 8.9 percent, which is more of a hindrance than a help, as they dropped to the second-to-last spot in the league’s overall standings. All the talk and all the work since then obviously paid off in the early days of the season.

Suddenly, the Ducks’ ability to score while skating with human advantage was their biggest strength at the start of the season. Their power play prevented them from playing another game, this time in severe 3-2 overtime over the Flames on Monday at Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary.

Overall, the Ducks are very reliable: 4 out of 11, while in the main game in early 2021-2022 – the last goal Cam Fowler will score in the first period. It took Ricard Raquell’s goal with a draw in the third period when he was rolling with equal strength, as well as an important late-stage penalty kick to bring the game to OT.

Rookie defender Jamie Drysdale then won 3:26 in extra time, converting a two-on-one break with Troy Terry and setting a 2-1-0 record for the start of the season. Terry knocked the puck off Noah Hanifin of the Flames in the defensive zone and then pushed forward, missing a pass to Drysdale in the moment of truth.

“Awesome,” Drysdale said of his first NHL overtime winner.

Drysdale praised Terry for setting him up.

“It was a little blurry, but Troy played well defensively and I tried to break through the ice as fast as I could,” Drysdale said. “Troy did all the work. It was a damn fun game on his part. It was really great to be back here in Canada, even though the fans were rooting for us. ”

Calgary took a 2-1 lead at Elias Lindholm’s goal just 3:52 before the start of the second period, and the Flames seemed determined to take control when Nicholas Deslorer faced Milan Lucic in mid-ice at 8:26 center. period. It was a battle that changed the course of events.

Deslore drew with Lucic, and although the Ducks were unable to level the score, they returned to the game and had to thank Deslore. Finally, they put steady pressure and stayed at punching distance, scoring just one entry goal in the third period.
