I predicted: “Could be a real nasty game, a real dispirited game, a real hard-hitting-all-business game.” Was mainly the latter two (the dispiritedness happening in the 3rd when the Ducks came back to within one).
But it’s a win. Two points. Four game losing streak ended.
Couture gutted it out (he looked a bit green during warm ups; had been at hospital most of the day getting antibiotics via IV for swollen face near eye), and notched two goals. Wingels had a big night (1G, 3A — new career high), and Long Beach native Nieto broke his goalless streak.
