This marks Anaheim’s third winning streak of at least seven games this year (9, Dec. 7-28; 7, Oct. 5-20). The last team to record three separate winning streaks of seven games-or-more in a single season was the Detroit Red Wings during the 2007-08 season (9, Oct. 18-Nov. 9, 2007; 8, Jan. 17-Feb. 5, 2008; 7, Nov. 27-Dec. 10, 2007)

This is also Anaheim’s ninth consecutive win at Honda Center. This is the second time the Ducks have had a HOME winning streak of eight-or-more games this year (the other was an eight-game streak from Oct. 10-Nov. 10). The last team to record two separate such streaks was the Calgary Flames in 2006-07 (10, Nov. 7-Dec. 12, 2006 and 8, Jan. 4-Feb. 3, 2007).

The Ducks improved to 35-8-5 (75 points) overall. The 35-8-5 record for 75 points is Anaheim’s best ever start to a season through 48 games, besting the previous mark of 30-10-8 for 68 points in 2006-07.

Jonas Hiller extended his club-record and career-high winning streak to 14, which ties the second-longest in NHL history in a single season. The last NHL goaltender to win 14 consecutive decisions in a single season was Pittsburgh’s Tom Barrasso, who won 14 straight from Mar. 9-Apr. 9, 1993.

(9, Oct. 18-Nov. 9, 2007; 8, Jan. 17-Feb. 5, 2008; 7, Nov. 27-Dec. 10, 2007).

Andrew Cogliano scored his 15th goal of the season (second GWG), just three goals shy of tying his career high (18 twice, 2007-08, 2008-09). He now has points in five of his last seven games (4-1=5) and six goals in his last 10 contests.

Kyle Palmieri tallied his 11th assist of the season, tying a career high set in 2012-13. He is currently on a two-game point/assist streak (0-2=2) and has points in five of his last seven games (2-4=6).

Tonight’s attendance was 17,375 including standing room, Anaheim’s sixth consecutive sellout.



Andrew Cogliano
On shutting out the Detroit Red Wings

Sometimes you have to bear down and play good defense, and squeak games out. I thought it was an even game for the most part. We were able to really neutralize some of their top guys and get a goal.

On winning in a variety of ways
It shows we can win different ways. When it comes down to it, we have guys who are willing to pay the price and get the job done. At the end of the day, Hillsy’s [Jonas Hiller] been the top player for us. When you have him in the net with full confidence, it’s tough to score on him. It felt like every line brought something well to the table offensively and defensively.

Jonas Hiller
On tonight’s 1-0 victory

It was a good game, a real tight, playoff-type game. There weren’t many scoring chances on both ends, but I’m really happy to get the win.

On this being his first shutout during his 14-game winning streak
My save percentage and goals-against average isn’t the best over this stretch, but it’s the wins that count. That’s what keeps you happy. It’s great to get a game with no goals against, but in the end, it’s the win that I enjoy most.

Head coach Bruce Boudreau
On winning in a variety of ways

From a coaching aspect, we really talked about having a one goal or zero goal game against. We’ve been doing two and three, and have been scoring a lot of goals. It masks deficiencies defensively sometimes. To be able to get a 1-0 win, where you had to defend it in the third period, was really good.

On the Cogliano-Koivu-Palmieri line
That line was really good. They’re out there to shut down [Henrik] Zetterberg’s line and they end up scoring the goal to win the game. That’s the kind of play we’ve been getting from Cogs and Sak. I thought Palmieri did a really good job on the right side tonight.


Henrik Zetterberg

On the game
We played one of our best games tonight, I think we fought hard. We played good enough to win but couldn’t find a way. 

On the team's injuries
It’s been here for a while now. It is nothing new for us. We just need to deal with it. The guys that have come up have done a great job for us. They have come in and played with a lot of grit and a lot of speed. They are speed subs for us old guys.

Patrick Eaves
On the game
They have a good team and they’re really good at home. I thought we competed hard and our goalie played great. There weren’t many chances, as you can see there weren’t a lot of shots from either side. They got one on us. We hit the post there in the third. I like the way we battled.

On “Red Wing luck”
I wouldn’t call it that. “Red Wing luck” or no luck, we just have to keep working hard and those chances will come.

Head coach Mike Babcock
On the road trip
On the four-game trip we had good goaltending in three out of the four games. We really competed in those games. We competed hard for probably 30 minutes in San Jose. Goals went in and we weren’t as good as we wanted to be for the rest of the game. The reality is you have to find a way to score. When we’re limited like this our power play has to be more dangerous. We’re too many one off’s. We don’t get it back enough, we’re not on the inside enough. That is something we can improve but overall good effort from our team.

On the Ducks
Normally they beat you 5-1. It was tight but they didn’t have much room either. Neither goalie had to be very good to be honest with you. There just wasn’t that type of opportunity. They’re finding a way to win every night and we’re not finding a way to win every night. We would like to be more like them to be honest with you.
