A blown lead. A comeback. The reemergence of one marquee center and a rare miscue by another. The amoeba that is the Ducks once again proved they are perhaps the most interesting team in the NHL with a 4-3 overtime loss to Arizona on Monday.
Here’s what we learned:
The top line cooled off in a hurry. Two games after they authoritatively led the Ducks to a win against Columbus, the line of center Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and Patrick Maroon combined for one shot and a minus-5 rating. Getzlaf ended up as the goat for his game-ending turnover -- a drop pass to open ice that Arizona’s Mikkel Boedker grabbed and scored on a breakaway.
