While Ryan Getzloff was writing a page in the history of the Anaheim Ducks, the Montreal Canadians ended a memorable task abroad with a 4-2 defeat at the Honda Center on Sunday.

On this Halloween day, the Canadian color bearers continued their terrible start to the season with a poor record of 2-8-0. Those who lost three of their four meetings in the West were “conveniently installed” in the cellar of the Atlantic section.
However, the visitors seemed to be doing better in Los Angeles than they had the day before, where they lost 5-2 to the Kings. This time, it was the goal that had overwhelmed Saint-Flannel in the mid-twenties. Getzloff left Troy Terry and allowed Samuel Montembult to overcome with a fine fin. At the same time, Getzloff scored 989 points in his career, becoming Team Seylan’s best scorer in California discount history.
With the support of his colleagues, including Sam Carrick, who wrote the goal on the blank net, John Gibson closed the books, he stopped 16 shots.
Still overcame the embarrassment
As has been going on regularly since the campaign began, the Canadian fought shorthand and the ducks benefited twice in the opening period. After Brett Kulak received a bad penalty, Adam Henrique took advantage of David Saward’s wand behind his net, unable to recover the defender’s disc, to open the scoring by deceiving Montembuilt’s vigilance in the enclave.
Then, Cedric Pacquiao drew the attention of his head coach Dominic Ducharm for the wrong reasons by tackling Trevor Zegras from behind. Disqualified from the game, he saw the opponent regain the lead during his main penalty, with a cross pass from Henrik completed by Winnie Lettier. At the same time, the goals scored by the backward Montreal team this year have reached a total of 14.
Fortunately, the other aspect of the special teams at the Blue-White-Red Camp was even more satisfying. Mike Hoffman cracked again, drawing with a powerful receiving shot to create a 1-1 stalemate in moments. For the veteran, it was his fourth goal in five games.
For his part, Jake Evans took advantage of an unexpected opportunity to recognize himself as being offered. No.71 was added to the line-up after it was confirmed that some players were absent, bringing the two clubs back to the first level by pushing a free puck behind Gibson on a late shorthand penalty in the second commitment.
Montembuelt made a total of 22 saves at the start of his second season.
Brendan Gallagher resigned shortly after taking part in the warm-up.
As Ducharm announced, Cubeser Matthew Perrolt lost the collision. He will be away for at least three weeks due to retinal detachment in his right eye.
The Hobbs will play their next five games at the Bell Center, starting with the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday, beating them 6-1 before heading to the American West.
