On Sunday night the Ducks discovered a different DNA coursing through their veins. They not just managed to surprise their rivals but their fans too. The last game which they featured against the Flames was a do or die encounter for them. But instead of allowing the opposition to dictate terms, they played their hearts out and displayed a killer instinct, the likes of which was not seen in the earlier games. Rather than allowing a fluky goal which would have virtually sent them packing, the Ducks took matters into their own initiative and displayed an un-believable show in all departments. They dominated the Flames, on Sunday for the entire quota of the last two periods and as things went into overdrive, they overtook the Flames- 35-10 including a clinical 7-0 score in OT.
This came as surprise to most of the audiences as in the past it was seen that these were the kind of games which the Ducks found ways to lose. But Sunday has a different proposition and for the sake of their fans and also for the sheer determination on part of their players especially their prime players, they found themselves to be on the better side.
Perry one of the chief catalysts of the win said that he was cocker-hoop with the win. He said that that the boys showed a lot of character and they stepped up at the right time. He also said that-“… when you have four lines going like we do, it’s a great feeling.”
Even the opposition admitted that they were beaten by a team which was well prepared both in terms of strategy as well as mind set. The Flames head coach Bob Hartley also said that it was a good learning experience for them. He also praised his boys saying that the boys fought very hard and that he was very proud of them.
