Sometimes a team is just flat out dominant in taking out the teams that are in their path as they advance in the postseason. But winning the first 6 games of the playoffs is pretty impressive, and it will be interesting to see if they can keep winning as they have to travel back to Canada to try and take out Calgary, the way the took out Winnipeg in the opening round.
Frederik Andersen deserves a large portion of the credit, at least for this sixth straight victory, as he didn't allow any goals as he saved 30 shots that were attempted on goal, but what could even be more impressive though is that the Ducks got 20 shots on goal on Karri Ramo of the Flames in the opening period.
Matt Beleskey would be the man who would score in the middle of that 20 shot barrage, as he was assisted by both Ryan Kesler and Jakob Silfverberg. But that would be the only goal through the first 50 minutes as both goalies were doing everything they could to take this crucial second game.
Hampus Lindholm would score his first goal of the playoffs in the third period to give the Ducks a 2-0 advantage in the game, and then a few minutes later Nate Thompson would score an empty netter to officially put the game away with the final score of 3-0.
Game 3 of this series will be at 9:30 PM Eastern on Tuesday, May 5. Make sure to make that game a part of your Cinco De Mayo plans as Calgary is essentially in a must win game.
