Game Two - Rookie Tournament\r\nMighty Ducks vs. San Jose
In another penalty filled rookie game in San Jose on Thursday night, the Mighty Ducks defeated the Sharks by a score of 7-4.

This game featured 33 penalties and eight of eleven goals being scored on the power play. Anaheim was two men short on five different occasions in the game.

“That makes things twice as tough when you are just killing penalties,” says Kevin Dineen, Head Coach of the Mighty Ducks rookie team. “You are just wearing out the same guys over and over and over. You probably should change it up a little bit, but we want to win these games, too. These guys are realizing now that any kind of a hook or hold is a penalty. Things aren’t going to change. This is the way it’s going to be. The players will adjust in time.”

Ducks center Tim Brent says the penalties will keep coming in the early part of the season. “It’s going to have a lot to do with special teams,” remarked Brent. “Teams that have the best special teams are going to win a lot of hockey games with these new rules. We are getting a bit of a taste of it now.” 

After winning their first two games over Los Angeles and San Jose, Brent says the team is right where they want to be. “We came out a little sluggish today, so we will probably concentrate on a better start next game,” added Brent. “We pulled it together in the second period and started playing the kind of hockey that we played in the first game.”

“These players are a pleasure to work with,” said Dineen, whose team won their second game in a row during the tournament. “These kids are pros. They are young, but they act like pros the way they are approaching the game and the way they play. They have a lot of confidence and have controlled pretty much every period they have played.”

“I think the score is pretty indicative of the way they played tonight,” added Dineen. “They played tonight with a lot of confidence and took advantage of the things they were given.”

Forward Ryan Getzlaf put in two goals and added two assists to the Ducks winning effort. Corey Perry added a power play goal and two assists.

Dineen says that forward Tim Brent caught his eye in the win over San Jose.

“He really had a strong game,” added Dineen, who will coach the Portland Pirates of the AHL this season. “I’ve heard so much about him from the Ducks management and I saw his versatility tonight.”

“Dustin Penner has had two strong games in a row,” mentioned Dineen. “And it’s so obvious to see how strong and powerful Ryan Getzlaf is. And how dominant a player he really is. He’s a pleasure to be able to tap on the shoulder.”

Anaheim goes ahead 1-0 on a power play goal by Corey Perry assisted by Ryan Getzlaf at 8:52 of the first period on a delay of game penalty to Shark defenseman Josh Gorges.

San Jose tied the game at 1-1 on the power play with Getzlaf in the box for hooking. The goal was scored on a tip in by Devin Setoguchi from a shot off the stick of Marc-Edouard Vlasic just inside the blue line and another assist from Josh Hennessy.

Anaheim defenseman Jordan Smith squared off in first period fisticuffs with San Jose forward Glenn Olson. Both were sent to the penalty box to serve five minutes, the only majors in the period.

San Jose had a potential goal disallowed at the 14:51 mark of the frame because the net behind Ducks goaltender J-Philippe Levasseur came off its moorings.

In the second period, the Ducks went ahead 2-1 on an even strength goal by center Derek Edwardson on an assist to Tim Brent at 1:02. Then the Ducks made it 3-1 on another even strength goal by center Jonathan Lehun assisted by Scott May and Brendan Mikkelson.

It was 4-1 Ducks after a power play goal by Ryan Getzlaf with a two-man advantage on assists from Aaron Rome and Jordan Smith at 9:00 of the period. Only seconds before, the Ducks had a goal disallowed because the net came off its moorings on a shot by Getzlaf.

At 9:54 of the frame, Simon Ferguson of the Ducks and Brad Staubitz engaged in a fight. Each player received five minutes for fighting and game misconducts.

The Mighty Ducks made it 5-1 after a power play goal off the stick of Aaron Rome with Getzlaf and Perry assisting. San Jose defenseman Scott Ford was in the box for roughing when the goal was scored at 10:58 of the second period.

 

Here’s a sample of the way the game was called as the game continued into the second half of the middle period and the early minutes of the final period.

 

The Ducks were issued two penalties, one to Rome for hooking at 12:43 and one to Eric Lundberg for slashing and played two men short late in the second period. They killed   both penalties off.

Another penalty at 16:12 of the period was assessed to Perry for boarding. Another assessed to Brendan Mikkelson for cross-checking at 16:25. Ducks are two men short again, the second time in the second period. Anaheim goaltender J-Philippe Levasseur stood tall in the nets for Anaheim until Ryan Salvis of the Sharks was penalized at 18:32 of the period for hooking. Ducks go on the power play after killing off the remaining time in the two man disadvantage. A charging penalty to the Ducks winger Bobby Bolt for running into the Sharks goalie, Jason Churchill is called at 19:58 of the second period.

The third period starts with each team playing a man short. Then the Ducks Scott May takes a penalty for hooking at 1:08 to put the Ducks down by two men for the third time in the game.

The Sharks score to cut it to 5-2 on a power play goal by Milan Michalek from Devin Setoguchi and Michael Versace at1:40 of the third period.

Seconds later, Ducks are penalized again, Mikkelson for tripping to put the Ducks down two men for the fourth time in the contest.

San Jose scored with a two man advantage to make it a 5-3 game at 4:26 of the third period on a goal from Josh Prudden on the power play.

With each team playing a man short after more penalties were assessed by referee Dean Sanborn, Getzlaf scores from Curtis Glencross and Perry at 11:24 to make it 6-3 for Anaheim.

Aaron Rome was assessed a delay of game penalty for the Ducks at 16:03 of the final period. Ducks defenseman Eric Lundberg was given a holding penalty at 17:14 to put the Ducks down by two men for the fifth time in the game.

Then Lukas Kaspar of San Jose was sent to the box for interference at 17:56 to make it 4 on 3 for the Sharks. They would score to make it 6-4 on the power play on a power play goal by forward Mike Iggulden from Ryan Salvis and Marc-Edouard Vlasic at the 18:02 mark of the period.

Anaheim closed out the scoring on an empty net goal from winger Dustin Penner with 24 seconds left in regulation.

“As we saw in our first game, there were a lot of penalties,” said Jordan Smith, Mighty Ducks defenseman. “A lot of power plays and penalty kills which really hinders the flow of the game. But I think once we were five on five, we were dominant in the offensive zone. We have to stay out of the penalty box and try to dominate teams with our speed and size.”

The Ducks look like a confident group going into Saturday afternoon’s contest versus Phoenix.

“We feel we are a tight knit group already,” says Smith, who spent most of last season playing in the OHL with Sault Ste. Marie. “It’s a great feeling to be a part of it right now.

Everyone in our room knows that we won it all last year. We definitely want to repeat this year.”

QUOTES from both Head Coaches after Phoenix-Los Angeles game.

Phoenix coach PAT CONACHER- “I thought in the first game against San Jose on Wednesday, we kept our structure very well.  Tonight, we were kind of fractured through the entire game on the fore check, the offensive zone and in the neutral zone. The first night we were very strong in the defensive zone and the neutral zone as far as our fore check was going. We got lots of turnovers.  I have to give the Kings credit, too. But still, it was a good effort. You put these young guys together in a short period of time. They do pretty well. I’m proud of them. We had our opportunities and they had theirs on the power play. They got one and we didn’t.”

Los Angeles coach JIM HUGHES- “We obviously played better today than yesterday. We had more structure in our game. Some of our guys were playing their first pro game last night versus Anaheim. Maybe we settled in tonight from the first game jitters. We liked the style of play we had tonight. We were getting some answers to our questions and gathering some information. This tournament has been a useful tool to find out where our players stand against some of the other team’s good young talent.”

TOURNAMENT QUOTES

DEVIN SETOGUCHI, selected by San Jose in the first round (8th overall) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft on playing in his first “Pacific Division Shootout.”

“It is fun to compare yourself with some of the guys who have been here before and see where I’m at in my development. I’m going to try and do my best. Whatever happens at the end of the week, I’ll take and learn from it and come back next year.”

ROY SOMMER, Cleveland (AHL)

Head Coach, and part of Sharks rookie team coaching staff on the tournament.

“This is a great opportunity for players to showcase their skills against peers of their own caliber. A lot of these guys are the best players these organizations have and they are all young. It gives you a good idea on where they are at and where their talent level is.”

PAT CONACHER, Head Coach of the Phoenix rookie squad on Coyotes prospect Randall Gelech.

“He should be one of the best players on the ice every game.”

Phoenix right winger RANDALL GELECH on his team participating in this year’s event.

“This tournament is very important, not only to myself, but everyone on this team. There’s no Stanley Cup waiting for the winners or any trophy, but our pride is on the line. For any athlete at this level, that is enough.”
