The Anaheim Ducks ran out of luck Monday night in Las Vegas, and suffered their fifth loss in six games, falling 4-3 in a shootout to the Golden Knights at the T-Mobile Arena.
With the loss, the Ducks are 11-11-6, good for sixth place in the eight-team NHL Pacific Division.
Anaheim fell behind early as the hosts scored a pair of first period goals. But the Ducks clawed into a lead with second period goals by Francois Beauchemin (his second of the season), Antoine Vermette (sixth) and Corey Perry (sixth).
Erik Haula scored at 15:38 of the third period, sending the game into a scoreless overtime. Alex Tuch scored the lone shootout goal and the Knights took two points and the Ducks one.
“We knew this was going to be one of our toughest road trips,” said Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle. “We’re going to go home and play a tough team tomorrow night. It’s just a continuation. The road trip isn’t over. We don’t get much rest. It’s the first road trip I’ve ever been on in my career that you play six in a row on the road and then come back and play at home off a back to back. That’s a new one.”
On Wednesday the Ducks will host the Ottawa Senators (9-10-6) at Honda Center.
