Feb. 23, 2023 – ANAHEIM 4 @ WASHINGTON 2
The Ducks earned their first win of a four-game road trip following a 4-2 victory over the Washington Capitals Thursday night at Capital One Arena, improving to 1-1-1 on the trip to date. John Gibson made 41 saves, his league-leading 10th contest with 40-plus saves this season. Gibson’s 21st save of the game marked his 1,323rd of the season (entered at a league-high 1,302), marking the most saves by any NHL goaltender in his first 40 games of the season since Jacques Plante (NYR) stopped 1,396 shots through 40 games in 1963-64. Prior to the game, Bernie Parent (PHI) was the only other goalie since 1963-64 with as many as 1,322 saves in 40 games in 1968-69. Cam Fowler earned two assists, his 398th and 399th career points, his third multi-point effort the last five games (2-5=7, +3). Jakob Silfverberg scored his seventh goal of 2022-23 and 148th goal as a Duck to surpass Bobby Ryan (147) for sole possession of seventh on the franchise’s all-time goals list. Troy Terry scored his 14th goal, the game-tying goal, in his return to the lineup following a seven-game absence due to injury. Isac Lundestrom and Derek Grant (empty net) each netted their third goal of the campaign. Dmitry Kulikov recorded his fifth point the last five games (1-4=5, +4). Kevin Shattenkirk also tallied his fifth point the last five games with an assist (2-3=5). Colton White tallied his fourth assist to tie his career high for assists in a single season (also four in 2021-22 w/NJD). Max Comtois also earned an assist, his fifth of 2022-23. Ryan Strome faced his brother, Dylan Strome, for the first time as a Duck, marking his seventh win in seven career meetings (7-0-0).
