Video: Lovejoy sets Ducks franchise record in win over Oilers

Jan 4, 2014, 1:00 AM EDT

Ben Lovejoy set a new franchise record for the Anaheim Ducks, and provided the turning point in the club’s 5-2 win over the struggling Edmonton Oilers on Friday.

Lovejoy scored twice in the span of two minutes and 43 seconds – the fastest two goals by a Ducks defenseman in franchise history, as per the club’s official Twitter account, citing Elias Sports Bureau.

His two-goal outburst turned a one-goal deficit for the Ducks into a one-goal lead. The second Lovejoy goal came with five seconds remaining in a wild first period.

The Ducks went on to take control of the game from that point on, increasing their lead to three goals in the third period and keeping the listless Oilers to just eight shots on goal through the final 40 minutes of play.

Meanwhile, the Ducks ran their home record to 16-0-2. Yes. Undefeated in regulation on home ice.

    Lovejoy’s been a real good pickup for them from the Pens. Doesn’t do anything too flashy, but is playing really solid as a depth defenseman. He does a little bit of everything for them and his confidence is up noticeably.

    Breaking: other teams’ depth players humiliate the entire Oilers roster. More at 11, if anyone is surprised enough to watch.

    good defenseman with a lot of potential. should be a consistent 30 point, PP2 and PK defenseman in this league at some point and he’s gotten better every year.
