A 5-on-3 power-play goal by Nashville’s Shea Weber was the difference, as Pekka Rinne stopped all 31 shots he faced. Two minor penalties in a game can usually pass by unnoticed, but not in the Ducks’ first period Friday.
Aaron Ward was whistled for interference at 17:19 and Ryan Getzlaf was caught high-sticking 17 seconds later. Few would have predicted that Weber’s blast 18 seconds into the 2-man power play would be the only goal all night.
Jonas Hiller played his best game since the Olympic break, stopping 27 of 28 shots.
