Lupul Leaves Blue Jackets Out in the Cold

Joffrey Lupul scored two goals on Friday night for the Mighty Ducks and added an assist on Keith Carney's game-winning goal at 17:24 of the third period to give Anaheim their first victory at the Arrowhead Pond this season, 4-3 over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Lupul has now netted four goals on the season, two each in both Ducks wins.

"Lupul has been able to make a nice contribution and he’s earning his ice time and making the most of his opportunities," said Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle.  

After a scoreless first period, Travis Moen (1, Hedstrom, Pahlsson) scored his first goal as a Mighty Duck to put Anaheim on the board 1-0.  Lupul would follow with his first goal of the contest (3, Getzlaf, Perry) by stuffing a loose puck past Blue Jackets netminder Pascal Leclaire to give the Ducks a 2-0 lead.

Like their 2-0 lead on Monday night, the Ducks would see the visitors battle back to even the score.

Jan Hrdina scored his first goal of the game (1, Malhotra) late in the 2nd period to cut the deficit to 2-1.  Columbus would get even early in the third period when Bryan Berard (2, Marchant, Beauchemin) whistled a slap-shot through traffic and past Ducks goaltender JS Giguere on the power play.

"It wasn’t a pretty game out there but it was the right result. We still need to be more consistent and we have too many penalties. That hurts us," said Carney. 

"Tonight we had some timely goals and some hard-working goals, but we need to play a more complete game."

Lupul's second goal (4, Carney, R. Niedermayer) would put the Ducks up 3-2 on the power play just over seven minutes into the third period after he cleaned up another rebound in front of Leclaire.

Hrdina would even the contest again with his second goal on the night (2, Berard, Foote) with under five minutes to play.

Less than two minutes later, Keith Carney would rifle a slap shot past Leclaire for the game-winner (1, R. Niedermayer, Lupul).

"We want to be a team that’s tough to play night in and night out," said Lupul

"We did them some favors tonight, but for the first time all season we really came back and battled over 60 minutes."
