Top 30 Moments: 1-5

The 2007-08 season for the Anaheim Ducks is in the books. Beginning in London and ultimately ending in disappointment against Dallas in the Western Conference Quarterfinals, the Ducks' attempt to defend their Stanley Cup title had plenty of memories along the way. Over the past several weeks, AnaheimDucks.com has counted down the top 30 moments from the season that was. Here is the final installment of the showcase - moments 1 through 5.

5. February 17, 2008 vs. Calgary
In a 4-2 victory over Calgary, both Teemu Selanne and J.S. Giguere etch their names atop career lists in Anaheim's record book.

With an assist on a Ryan Carter first period goal, Selanne earns his 670th point in a Ducks uniform, which passes Paul Kariya (669) for a new club career record. Stopping 23-of-25 shots fired by the Flames, Giguere wins his 174th career game with the Ducks to pass Guy Hebert (173) for another club career record.

Selanne and Giguere Stand Alone




4. February 6, 2008 at Washington DC
Amid a long road trip East, the Ducks make a special stop at The White House to commemorate their 2007 Stanley Cup championship.

After touring the historic building, President George W. Bush holds a ceremony in the East Room where he honors the team and their accomplishments during a nine-minute speech before he receiving a customized Ducks jersey.

Ducks Get Presidential Treatment





3. February 5, 2008 at NY Islanders
Eight days after announcing his comeback to the Ducks, Teemu Selanne rejoins the lineup at the New York Islanders.

Selanne's presense is immediately felt, as he assists on the Ducks' first goal in eight periods in the second and helps the team snap a season-high six-game losing streak with a 3-0 victory over the Islanders. The Ducks would go on to win five straight and 20 of their final 26 games with Selanne back in the fold.

It's Teemu Time Once Again




2. December 16, 2007 vs. San Jose
Spurning retirement, Scott Niedermayer returns to the Ducks lineup 11 days after making his long-awaited decision.

While the Ducks would fall to San Jose (2-1 in a shootout) in his first game back, Niedermayer's return is a turning point in the season. In 34 games without the dynamic defenseman, the Ducks held a 15-15-4 record. With him back, the team finishes the year with a 32-12-4 mark (best in the NHL over that span).

Scotty Makes His Return 




1. October 10, 2007 vs. Boston
Just over four months after hoisting their first Stanley Cup, the Ducks return to Honda Center for the 2007-08 home opener against Boston.

Capping off an emotional pre-game tribute, the Ducks raise the Pacific Division, Western Conference and Stanley Cup Championship banners to the rafters, forever enshrining the best season yet in team history. The Ducks further delight the capacity crowd of 17,285 with a 2-1 defeat of the Bruins.
