Wild Win Shootout, Down Ducks 4-3

ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Minnesota Wild spoiled Mighty Ducks’ fans first live look at the new NHL shootout with a shootout win and a 4-3 victory in the contest on Sunday afternoon at the Arrowhead Pond.

The Ducks, with goals in the game from rookies Ryan Getzlaf (2) and Zenon Konopka, rallied from a two-goal deficit in the second period to eventually force the extra hockey.

For the second-straight game, the Ducks were off to a slow start in the contest.

“We wanted to have a good start and we were terrible in the first period again,” said Ducks right wing Teemu Selanne.

“For some reason the first periods have been a problem for us and that’s the area we have to fix now.” 

Brian Rolston (8, Dupuis, Kuba) scored on a breakaway, shorthanded, to give the Wild a 1-0 lead at 2:12 of the first period. The goal was Rolston's 27th career shorthanded goal.

Wild rookie Mikko Koivu (1, Bouchard, Wanvig) would net his first career NHL goal at 17:35 to give Minnesota a 2-0 lead after one period.

The Ducks would explode in the second period with 17 shots on net and three goals.

Konopka’s goal, (1, Pahlsson, Marshall) at 2:08 of the second, was the first of his NHL career.

Stephane Veilleux (1, Walz) would add one for the Wild, his first of the season at 5:04 of the second period, to regain the two-goal lead for Minnesota.

Getzlaf, however was too much for the Wild in the second period.

The rookie’s first goal of the contest (2, Selanne, Kunitz) came  when he ripped a slap shot past Wild goaltender Manny Fernandez at 8:01 of the second period.  Getzlaf’s second goal (3, Selanne, S. Niedermayer) came on the power play at 15:08 and tied the game 3-3.

“It was exciting. Any time you’re team is down and you can bring them back, it’s good,” said Getzlaf.

After a scoreless third and overtime period, the Ducks and Wild would head to the first shootout in the history of the Arrowhead Pond.

After Rolston hit Giguere in the shoulder with the Wild’s first shot, Selanne scored for the Ducks with a shot that deflected off Minnesota goaltender Manny Fernandez’s shoulder and into the net.

With Minnesota’s second attempt, Koivu buried a backhand past Giguere.  After Ducks forward Andy McDonald missed the net with Anaheim’s second shot, Randy Robitaille would put the Wild ahead, 2-1, beating Giguere low, stick-side.

Getzlaf had a chance to force a tie in the shootout but would miss the net on the last Ducks shot and Minnesota skated off with two points from the Arrowhead Pond.

“They’re a hard team to play against, but the positive of it is we came back and had an opportunity to take two points but lost in the shootout,” said Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle.

“When you win the shootout, it’s like you won the game and when you lose them, it’s like you lost the game. It’s a hard thing to sell to your team. In reality, we didn’t lose the game, we lost a point.”

The Ducks will not see game action again until Saturday when they face the Phoenix Coyotes at Glendale Arena at 6 PM.  Anaheim will return home on Sunday to face-off with the Dallas Stars at 5 PM.

NOTES: The Ducks have earned standings points in six of their last seven contests (4-1-2) and in their last eight home games (6-0-2)…The Ducks put 42 shots on Fernandez.  That is the most shots Anaheim has registered in a game this season…The two goals by Getzlaf ties a rookie club record, set several times, most recently by Joffrey Lupul on Feb. 25, 2004 vs. Edmonton.
