ANAHEIM – The San Diego Sharks swallowed up the Anaheim Ducks 6-2, Sunday in Anaheim. Friday night the Ducks and the Los Angeles Kings played shutout hockey for the first two periods before the Ducks folded .
Brantford’s Adam Henrique scored his 11th goal of the campaign to open the scoring at 2:05 of the third period with Kase assisting. Great second effort in the goal crease by Henrique to record the goal.
Henrique started and closed the play. After getting around Kings forward Nick Shore at the Los Angeles blue line, he skated into the corner, where the puck caromed out to Ondrej Kase, who turned and shot. The puck hit the skate of Kings defenseman Kevin Gravel and went to the side of the net, where Henrique outbattled Christian Folin for the puck and it crossed the line before Quick could reach back and cover it.
The Ducks have been migrating north on the standings board and fifth place on the Wildcard standings, with 53 points, one behind LA and the Minnesota Wild. Along the way, Six Nations defenseman, Brandon Montour has scored six goals and has assisted on 14 for 20 points, to date.
Tuesday, the Ducks hosted the New York Rangers in a game that will miss the TRT’s print deadline. Coming up for Montour, Henrique and the Ducks will be Thursday night when the Winnipeg Jets fly into Anaheim.
