Ducks Ready to Move on

By Matt Vevoda

While they were humbled in a 5-0 defeat to Dallas on Monday, the Ducks returned to Honda Center for practice Tuesday in search of consistency, which appeared to be building after back-to-back wins over Columbus and Phoenix last week.

“We play a couple of games and then we falter like we did Monday night from a standpoint of execution and structure,” coach Randy Carlyle said. “We were not anywhere near where we needed to be for the 60 minutes.”

While he acknowledged the Ducks’ roller coaster ride of a season thus far, second-year defenseman Kent Huskins said the team needs to push forward to find a solution.

“It’s a pretty fragile thing sometimes. You think you’re headed in the right direction and then you have a night like Monday night,” Huskins said. “We’ve been doing some really positive things the last week. The loss can’t discourage us. It’s just a matter of learning from it and making sure it doesn’t happen in the next game.”

After a quick team meeting Tuesday addressing Monday night’s loss, the Ducks were collective ready to move on to Wednesday’s home game against Phoenix.

“The sun came up,” Corey Perry said. “It’s a new day. Wednesday’s a new game and a new team. We just have to be prepared.”

After dropping their first meeting with the Coyotes 1-0 on Oct. 25 at home, the Ducks sizzled in Phoenix for a 5-2 win on Nov. 3.

While that victory against the Coyotes helped remedy the problem of winning on the road this season, the Ducks hope Wednesday’s game is the first step towards solving their stability woes.

“Our power play clicked a few times in Phoenix,” Perry said. “If we’re doing that and we’re skating, we’re going to be successful. We’re going to create chances and eventually they’re going to go in the net. It’s just one of those things where the other night five went in and Monday night none went in. We have to get back to being consistent.”
