Anaheim Ducks

Late start means a loss to Canucks

ANAHEIM DUCKS lost 2-1 to Vancouver on Sunday night.

ANAHEIM DUCKS lost 2-1 to Vancouver on Sunday night.

A two-goal deficit was too much for the Anaheim Ducks to overcome as they lost 2-1 to the Vancouver Canucks at Honda Center on Sunday night. The loss deprived the team of a chance to close the distance with the NHL Pacific Division-leading San Jose Sharks, who also lost Sunday.

After falling behind 2-0, the Ducks finally got on the scoreboard at the 6:12 mark of the third period on a score by Patrick Eaves, his 23rd goal of the season. But that all was all Anaheim could muster.

“We were a flat hockey team,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said of the first two periods.

Anaheim outshot Vancouver 44-27 but Richard Bachman shone in goal for the visitors, getting 43 saves.

The Ducks (33-22-10) fell into third place with the lost and next are next in action on Tuesday hosting the Nashville Predators at Honda Center.
