Jakob Silfverberg and the Anaheim Ducks both made impressive comebacks in the team’s 4-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche Tuesday night. Silfverberg returned from a concussion, which sidelined him since Jan. 19, and scored two goals and got an assist in the win at Honda Center.
The Ducks, like the rest of the league, are back from a lengthy All-Star break layoff. The win put the team’s record at 28-15-9, worth 65 points. That puts the Orange County squad in second place in the NHL Pacific Division, just one point back of San Jose (32-17-2).
Other Ducks scores were by Rickard Rakell and Cam Fowler. John Gibson had 28 saves in goal and improved his personal mark to 20-11-8. Anaheim is next in action on Friday visiting the Florida Panthers (22-19-10, 54 points).
