Postgame Notes and Quotes: Oct. 18 vs. Phoenix
Postgame notes and quotes from Anaheim\'s 3-2 shootout victory over the Phoenix Coyotes at Honda Center.

The Ducks improved their 2013-14 record to 6-1-0, the first time in club history the team has won six of its first seven contests. The club’s 12 points through seven equals the best start in club history (5-0-2 in 2006-07).

The Ducks are 4-0-0 at HOME, the best start to a season at Honda Center all-time.

The Ducks have won six straight games, tied for the longest streak in the NHL this season (also longest active streak). The last time Anaheim won six straight was Feb. 9-24, 2013 (6-0-0).

Tonight marked Teemu Selanne’s 450th goal as a Duck (677th career). He has goals in consecutive games (2-0=2).

Jakob Silfverberg is now 5-for-8 (62.5%) in shootouts with tonight’s goal accounting for the second game-deciding shootout goal of his career.

Jonas Hiller remains undefeated this season, now 4-0-0 with a 1.45 GAA, .954 SV% and one shutout.

The club’s opening five-game homestand closes on Sunday vs. Dallas. The evening will serve as Hockey Fights Cancer Night presented by Loma Linda University Health.

POSTGAME QUOTES
ANAHEIM DUCKS


Nick Bonino
On his game-tying goal

Usually, I get to that spot, backing up the D on those faceoffs, and I’m just going to rim it down the boards. But, I had an extra second and I knew Penner was stationed in front. I just tried to put it in front.

Jakob Silfverberg
On the team’s success
Today maybe wasn’t our best game again, but we played really good defensively, and we didn’t give up too many chances. We have great goaltending, and that’s been taking us to a couple wins in the last couple games.

Bruce Boudreau
On the 3-2 shootout victory
I thought it was a good hockey game. It’s two teams that have played against each other for a while. We know how tough they are, and they know how tough we are. We got a lucky goal and continued to fight. I thought we had a lot of really good chances.

PHOENIX COYOTES

Mike Smith
On the team's performance late in the third

We were scared to win. That is not how you finish off hockey games. We were solid up until that point but we went out in the third period and had six shots and let them come. When you give that team the chances that we gave them, sooner or later it’s going to get the back of the net. It ended up being a fluky one but we iced the puck 6 to 7 times in the third and we just weren’t making plays. We stopped playing the game. We could feel it coming and once it came, we couldn’t stop it. That’s where we need guys to be able to calm it down and make plays like we did all game because we played pretty solid.

Shane Doan
On the team's performance late in the third
We weren’t playing scared, but we didn’t play as well once we had the lead. They obviously picked up their intensity a little bit more when they were down one. We stopped making as many plays as we had made prior to that. We gave them more opportunities and that happens. It makes for a little bit longer last 10 minutes.

Dave Tippett
On the game
I thought we played a solid road game. Both teams had a few chances but we hung around the game and gave ourselves a chance to win and that is what you want to do. Anaheim has been playing very well and we wanted to come in and play a solid game. For the most part, we did that.
