Max Jones and Troy Terry help lift Ducks to their third consecutive win
Max Jones scored the go-ahead goal, Troy Terry had a goal and an assist, and the Ducks beat Chicago 4-2 on Monday night at Honda Center to end the Blackhawks’ five-game winning streak.
Isac Lundestrom and Jakob Silfverberg also scored, Mason McTavish had three assists, and the Ducks (20-34-7) won their third straight game. Lukas Dostal made 24 saves after losing his previous five starts.
Tyler Johnson had a power-play goal and an assist and Andreas Athanasiou scored for the Blackhawks (21-33-5), who had been on their longest run of sustained success since they won five in a row in January 2020. Petr Mrazek gave up four goals on 33 shots.
John Gibson becomes the second goalie in NHL history to record three 50-save performances in a single month in the Ducks’ 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.
Jones put the Ducks back up 3-2 with 17.5 seconds left in the second period, scoring between Mrazek’s legs off a rush.
Terry added a cheeky sharp-angle chip at 8:15 of the third to secure the Ducks’ second three-game winning streak of the season. The Pacific Division’s last-place team also strung together three straight victories Jan. 24-28.
The Blackhawks continued to clear out their veteran ranks Monday, trading forward Sam Lafferty and defenseman Jake McCabe to Toronto. A separate transaction sent defenseman Jack Johnson back to Colorado, where he was part of its Stanley Cup championship run.
Despite those moves and the likelihood of more to come before the trade deadline Friday — notably the expected departure of modern-era franchise icon Patrick Kane — Chicago started out well when Johnson beat Gibson through the five-hole on a wrist shot from the left circle 5:35 into the game.
But the Ducks responded with Lundestrom’s fourth goal of the season and Silfverberg’s third power-play tally to take a 2-1 lead into the first intermission.
Athanasiou, another Blackhawks player who could potentially be dealt, tied the score at 2 midway through the second.
Up next for the Ducks: Host Washington on Wednesday.
