ANAHEIM, Calif. (NWN) — Ricard Raquel had one goal and one assist, Anthony Stolzerz made 34 saves and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Ottawa Senators 4-0 on Friday.
Troy Terry had a power-play goal and Isaac Lundestrom and Derek Grant also scored to help the Ducks end their three-game losing streak. Stolarz got his fourth career shutout, and rookie center Trevor Zegrass had two assists.
Anton Forsberg made 29 saves for the Senators. They have dropped four in a row and have won only one in their last 11 matches.
Raquel extended Anaheim’s lead to 4-0 at 9:05 of the third period, reaching the edge of the paint for a chip shot to end a clever passing sequence from Sonny Milano to Zegrass to Raquel.
Raquel has scored two goals and two assists in a three-game points streak since returning from an upper body injury that had kept her out for 10 games.
Terry put up the Duck 3-0 with 43 seconds in the second, building up the momentum before cutting right and landing a backhand shot between Forsberg’s legs. It was Terry’s fourth power-play goal and 13th overall, leaving the team behind in both categories.
Grant scored 2-0 with 9:32 to move into second after Anaheim scored a penalty. Victor Matte tried to bat away the loose puck after Grant’s shot was intercepted by Forsberg, but it hit Tyler Ennis and went away.
Ennis could inadvertently do nothing but hang his head after Gough, who came after he lost his leg in neutral territory to allow Grant to run down the ice with the puck.
A one-time goal in the low slot broke Lundestrom’s first goal on the fourth goal with a 3:17 duck.
