Ducks find creative way to celebrate 21-game home point streak

The Anaheim Ducks were without captain Ryan Getzlaf on Sunday, but they still had their hottest player. That would be Jonas Hiller, who won his 14th game in a row, extending the Ducks’ team streak to seven games with a 1-0 shutout against the Detroit Red Wings.

Hiller, 31, hasn’t lost since Dec. 3 and hasn’t been defeated in regulation since Nov. 26. Shutting out the Red Wings adds another accolade to his bursting list, whether they’re banged up or not.

As mentioned in Saturday’s Ducks victory lap post, you can put together all sorts of impressive streaks for the Ducks right now. The team is understandably trumpeting their 21-game point streak to open the 2013-14 season (19-0-2), however, and they’re doing it in a creative way:

    Wow…that’s pretty damn cheap. Nice thing of the Ducks to do for an underrated fan base. Ducks have a really great team this year

      They beat an average east team so no big deal.

        Who they lost a playoff series to just a few months ago. So they’re happy with that. Fair enough. And also with straight-up thrashing the entire NHL for the first 40 or so games.

        Yes, they beat one average team most recently. After wrecking the entire NHL for the past month. Your comment clearly has merrit.

    Ducks fans are calling for Hiller to be locked up after his shutout. He’s scrappy, but i’m still not sold. Lukewarm stats with an incredible team effort in front of him. I like Andersen, I like Fasth (though he’s slipping), and I love Gibson. Crowded scene and Hiller probably brings the most return. I’m all for shipping Hiller of if we can get some nice parts back that Brucey can use.

      So you love Gibson, despite the kid never playing a single NHL game. But you’re not sold on Hiller who has been incredibly consistent and is a veteran with tons of experience, regular and post season. And you want to ship our only proven goaltender before the inevitable playoffs!?!? What nice parts does Bruce need more than a dependable goaltender? How can you like Fasth more than Hiller? He’s played three games all season!!

        He’s consistently average. Career GAA of 2.49, posting a 2.34 this season and it’s his best season (rookie aside). I give him some credit for winning regardless, but he doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence from me. He choked against Detroit.

        The rest of your points were about games played. I’d be comfortable giving games to the 3 others. To me, goaltending isn’t why we’re winning games (Andersen aside. His select starts have been good). Same as Bruce’s Caps team. It wasn’t goaltending that won them games either.

        Evidently, people don’t agree with me, but I think we’ll be the fine without Jonas. He’s not bad, I just don’t think he’s essential to our “inevitable playoffs” run. I’m fine with being in the minority, I have no power over the decision, but I’d be happier with a pick in this draft or an interesting player from another team.

        It continues to amaze . . it is no wonder Ducks fans have such a poor reputation around the league . . . “I’d be comfortable giving games to the 3 others.” Unfathomable. Between the “three others” there is a grand total of around 39 NHL games between them. One has struggled his last three starts with around an .880 save percentage and sent down to the AHL as a result . . . another is on IR indefinitely . . . the third is a kid with a bright future with zero NHL experience. It would be a good idea to trade their only reliable, record breaking, goalie for a draft pick? I think you are a Queens fan posing . . .

    Trade Hiller? When? Why? Never understood the logic of wanting to turn a Stanley Cup calibre team over to a guy with 11 NHL starts and/or a guy with 30 NHL starts (with an injury status with no end in sight). Andersen is in the AHL because he has looked woefully average his last three NHL starts. Gibson is the Ducks goaltending future, no doubt. Hiller is clearly their best option this year if the Ducks are going to continue to contend for the Cup.

    I hate the Ducks so much (Sharks and Yotes fan), but man they are just undeniably amazing so far this season.
