POSTGAME NOTES
Anaheim 4 vs. Ottawa 1
Oct. 13, 2013
Honda Center
4-1-0, 8 Standings Points

The Ducks improved their 2013-14 record to 4-1-0, equaling the best start in club history. The other top starts:
2011-12, 4-1-0 for 8 points
2006-07, 3-0-2 for 8 points

The club’s 56 shots on goal are the most in club history (previously 54, Mar. 27, 2009 vs. EDM). In addition, Anaheim’s 23 shots in the first period matched the club record (record for any period remains 26).

The Ducks have won four straight games, matching the third-longest streak in the NHL this season.

Ryan Getzlaf has scored back-to-back game-winning goals, the first time he has accomplished the feat since Dec. 12, 2010 vs. MIN and Dec. 15, 2010 at WSH.

Jonas Hiller has won all three of his starts this season (3-0-0, including one shutout), posting a 1.30 GAA and .959 SV%.

Corey Perry has points in four straight games (3-3=6, +4), including the 34th multi-goal game of his career (2-0=2 tonight).

Francois Beauchemin is a +9 over the last four games with his +4 tonight matching a career best (third time, last: Feb. 6, 2007 at SJ).

Hampus Lindholm recorded his first two NHL points this evening (0-2=2, +4).

The Ducks are 2-0 at HOME for the fourth time in club history (also 2011-12, 2006-07, 1999-00).

The club’s opening homestand continues with contests vs. Calgary (Wednesday, Oct. 16, 7 p.m.), Phoenix (Friday, Oct. 18, 7 p.m.) and Dallas (Sunday, Oct. 20, 5 p.m.).

Tonight’s attendance was 17,177, a sellout.

POSTGAME QUOTES
ANAHEIM DUCKS

Corey Perry
On putting 56 shots on net in 4-1 victory
We passed up a few shots, as well. That’s the way we want to play. We want to shoot as many pucks on the net as we can. Good things are going to happen when you start doing that. You can see it in the last couple of games.

On wearing the Mighty Ducks jersey
They’re nice. This is what I was drafted in, and this is what I wore in my first year. It’s nice and exciting to come back to your roots.

Jonas Hiller
On tonight’s game
I thought it could’ve been a higher score. We were talking about it before the game. We wanted to come out even stronger than we did in the last game, and I think we did. We just kept going until the end. When you’re up 4-1, you don’t want to risk anything, so you play with a little more patience. I thought we controlled the game for 60 minutes.

On wearing the Mighty Ducks jersey
It was fun. I was super excited about the retro gear. I think the mask turned out pretty cool. If it’s up to me, we could play the whole season like that. It was cool. To honor all the guys and fly them all in was a pretty special event. It’s fun to be a part of this organization.

Bruce Boudreau
On tonight’s effort

I was really worried after the first [period]. We could’ve had eight goals, and it was only a 2-1 game. It took a lot of character for them to keep playing. Sometimes most teams have one really good period, then you have a sag. But, we didn’t have that. It’s a good start.

On the play of rookie Lindholm
From the first day of rookie camp to now, the improvement has been really remarkable. He absorbs everything and he’s taking everything in. He was plus-4 tonight with a couple points. He’s still only 19, so it’s going to take a little while, but he’s getting better every night.

OTTAWA SENATORS

Jason Spezza
On tonight’s game

They are a good team. We weren’t intimidated, we just aren’t playing right. We aren’t doing things how we are supposed to. We are rushing our plays, we are giving the puck away instead of hanging onto it and being patient. We are chasing our tails out there. We seem like we are working but we are a step behind. We are just reacting to them.

I hope these two games are an eye opener and we tighten things up defensively because you’re not going to survive playing like that.

Bobby Ryan
On tonight’s game

We were down 2-0 early. If you don’t change the way you play against a team like that, that is playing pretty well, you’re not going to have any success.

Even though the first was ugly, we came in down a goal and there is a sense of optimism at that point. I think for 5-6 minutes, we had a lot of pace to our game. I thought we generated chances and zone time, but when you come out and 3-4 minutes in you give up another one, you’re playing catch-up all game. You’re not going to win games like that.

Paul MacLean
On tonight’s game

It’s a little bit worse. It is two nights in a row. You give up over 50 shots, you hang your goalie out, right from the start of the game. We’re not very good. We need to go back to square one and find something to hang our hat on. Right now the only thing we have is goaltenders and we make them work too hard.

You never can play in any league and be chasing the game constantly. We constantly chased the game and frankly we don’t look very good.
