POSTGAME NOTES
Anaheim 5 vs. Calgary 2
Nov. 29, 2013
Honda Center
18-7-3, 39 Standings Points

The Anaheim Ducks improved to 10-0-1 at Honda Center this season, marking the club’s best home start in franchise history. Anaheim remains the only NHL club to remain undefeated in regulation this season. The Ducks are now 9-4-4 all-time in day-after-Thanksgiving games, including a 7-3-3 mark at Honda Center. Anaheim is 2-0-0 vs. Calgary in such games (also a 5-3 Ducks win on Nov. 26, 2006).

The Ducks have won 18 consecutive home games over the Flames, the longest home win streak vs. one opponent in club history. Anaheim has not lost at home to Calgary since Jan. 19, 2004 and is 18-6-1 vs. their new Pacific Division rival dating to Nov. 29, 2007.

With two assists today (0-2=2), Ryan Getzlaf owns an official seven-game point streak (3-5=8). Including the two games he played prior to a three-game absence due to injury, Getzlaf has points in the last nine games he has played in (7-7=14). While the nine-game streak is not an official point streak because he missed three games, this still marks the first time since Oct. 21-Nov. 14, 2009 (11-game streak) that he has points in nine consecutive games that he has played in.

Dustin Penner is riding a three-game goal streak (five goals in three games), his longest since a three-gamer from Oct. 10-16, 2010. His two goals mark his 13th career multi-goal game and second of the season (last: Nov. 23 @ PHX).

Saku Koivu appeared in his first game since Oct. 27 at Columbus, collecting two assists to surpass Chris Kunitz (111) for 12th place on the club’s all-time assists list (112).

Frederik Andersen stopped 19-of-21 shots to improve to 7-1-0 in eight career NHL starts with the Ducks.

Tonight’s attendance was 17,174.

POSTGAME QUOTES

ANAHEIM DUCKS

Dustin Penner
On the bounce back win

We want to get some confidence to take into next week because we’ve got some pretty stiff competition. We’re going to need the team feeling as confident as possible.

On his own performance thus far
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to come in with any consistency. Obviously, playing with Getzlaf and Perry, and the way we read off of each other, we’re opportunistic. It’s not like I’ve been doing anything different. I still have the same mindset I’ve had the past two years. Now I’m getting more of an opportunity now.

Saku Koivu
On how he felt today

Physically, I felt surprisingly good. Coming back from a concussion, which is a first for me, I was a little hesitant in the first period, and then in the second half I felt a little more comfortable. You can only get so much contact in practice. You need a couple games to really see how you feel. But, tonight I felt fine.

On the chemistry of his line with Andrew Cogliano and Daniel Winnik
Sometimes it’s tough to pinpoint one thing on why it’s working, but we just try to keep people honest. A lot of our offensive chances come off our forecheck and off the rush. Some nights you’re not going to get results, but if you put the work in, and you try and outwork the opponent, good things happen. It’s fun playing with those two guys. For an older guy like me, when you see two young guys buzzing around and putting the work in, there’s no choice but to join them and try to keep up.

Bruce Boudreau
On the Cogliano-Koivu-Winnik line

They have great chemistry. They’ve had it for over a year. I think they like playing together, and it shows in their enthusiasm they have when they’re out there. They were the catalysts tonight. They were the ones who got it going and kept it going.

On the next stretch of games
It’s going to let us know where we are in the next four games. San Jose, Los Angeles, Chicago and St. Louis are the top-four teams in the league. It’ll give us a real good barometer of where we’re at. In that sense, we’re looking forward to seeing where we’re at.

CALGARY FLAMES

David Jones
I didn’t know we had such a tough go here, but they are a good team, you have got to give them credit. They have a lot of talent with that line out there, the Getzlaf line and they kind of exploited us there.

Ladislav Smid
Obviously we wanted two points really bad. It’s really disappointing losing. I felt in the second period we came back and had a big chance to make it 4-3. I think that would be a little bit different game. We just proved you can’t give too much time and space to that big line, they are going to capitalize on any chance they get.

We don’t want to make any excuses with injuries, every team goes through that and other guys just have to step up and be leaders. I thought we were really flat in the first period and we had a good talk between periods and I thought we came back stronger in the second period, we scored some goals but at the same time we made some mistakes, had some turnovers and it pretty much cost us the game.

Coach Bob Hartley
Well, we had no answer for the Getzlaf, Perry and Penner line. Those guys basically dominated us the entire game. We got back after we scored the second goal and I felt we generated a little momentum, but that fifth goal put us back on our heels and they are a big team and just grind it out.

They just storm around his net, I don’t think any goalies would have made a difference. They are a big team, they crash the net and they generate lots of traffic and they took advantage of a couple mistakes on our side. It was already planned that Karri Ramo was going to start tomorrow, so that is why we put him in after their fifth goal.
