Ducks Dethrone Kings
The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim flew high on the Pond in Anaheim, CA versus their cross-state rivals, the LA Kings. Sergei Federov, Vaclav Prospal, and Steve Rucchin each tallied goals for the Ducks in the third period to carry them to a 6-3 victory over the Kings. The tone began early when Anaheim goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere raced from the crease to track down Kings forward Sean Avery after Avery had words for Giguere. "You have to stand up to those guys, they are our neighbors and we hate each other,'' said Giguere, who made 41 saves. "We wanted to send them a message.'' With the game tied 3-3 early in the third, Fedorov intercepted a pass by Los Angeles defenseman Brad Norton in the offensive zone and ripped a wrist shot past goalie Cristobal Huet. After Prospal scored on a wrist shot from the right circle, Rucchin blasted a slap shot by Huet to position the Ducks for the victory. Huet was replaced by Mathieu Chouinard after yielding the sixth Ducks goal. "We had six defenseman dressed, the problem is the six we had out on the ice didn't get the job done,'' Kings coach Andy Murray said.
