John Gibson made 20 saves in Friday's 4-2 win over the LA Kings.
Both of the goals against were through heavy traffic, so it's difficult to blame Gibson too much. He did manage to save a couple of breakaway challenges, including one on Jeff Carter. Fortunately for Gibson, his teammates rallied and scored four unanswered goals in the third period to take the game. The win brings his record up to 7-5-0 with 33 goals against in 13 games this season. Feb 28 - 1:29 AM

John Gibson will start for the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.

It will be Gibson's eighth consecutive start. Frederik Andersen is getting close to returning and when he does, Gibson will need to compete with him for the starting job.

John Gibson made 31 saves on 33 shots but took the loss in the Ducks 3-0 defeat to Ottawa on Wednesday.

Gibson was named the second star of the game so it wasn't his fault his team couldn't get one past the Senators rookie goalie Andrew Hammond. Gibson had rattled off three straight wins before this loss and has a 6-5-0 record in 12 appearances. The Ducks will likely continue to give Gibson the run of the starts until Frederik Andersen returns. Start him in all formats as the Ducks just had a bad night offensively.

John Gibson will start in goal for the Ducks on Wednesday night against the Senators.

Wednesday will be Gibson’s seventh straight start while Frederik Andersen continues to be sidelined. He made 35 saves in Monday’s 4-3 shootout victory over the Detroit Red Wings and will look for his sixth win in his 11th start of the year. He has a 2.74 goals-against-average and .912 save percentage in the 2014-2015 season and has never faced the Red Wings in his career.

John Gibson saved 35 of 38 shots in regulation in a 4-3 shootout win versus Detroit on Monday.

Gibson was bested by Gustav Nyquist during the skills competition, but he denied Pavel Datsyuk and Tomas Tatar. The Ducks goaltender has now won three straight games as he continues to fill the void left by Frederik Andersen (neck). Andersen is getting close to returning and once that happens, Gibson should get a fair shot to compete for the number one job, but he'll have an uphill battle ahead of him in that regard.

John Gibson will get the call in net for the Ducks Monday night versus the Detroit Red Wings.

Gibson will be making his sixth straight start Monday night where he will look for his sixth win of the season and third consecutive win. On the season he has a 5-4 record, 2.74 goals-against-average, and .911 save percentage in 10 games played. Monday will be his first career start against the Wings.

John Gibson set aside 26 shots in Anaheim’s 2-1 win over Edmonton on Saturday night.

That’s more like it. Gibson has generally been pretty lousy since taking over after Frederik Andersen got injured. He has won two in a row, though this is just his second game in his past five starts with at least a .900 save percentage. Gibson has a 2.74 goals-against average and .911 save percentage this season.
Feb 21 - 9:56 PM

John Gibson is expected to start for the second time in as many nights as his Ducks take on the Oilers on Saturday night.

Gibson comes in with a 4-4-0 record with 25 goals against on 265 shots in nine games this season. He's never faced Edmonton before, nor has he ever started back to back games with no rest. Goalies don't typically fair well without rest, so you may want to find a more favorable matchup tonight.

After Calgary went up 2-0 with half the game to go, the Ducks would tally the next five goals en route to a 6-3 win on Friday night.

The first and third goals were rebound goals. One could argue Gibson still should've stopped them, but it was bang-bang, and the defense should've been better. The Flames' second tally was stoppable as Lance Bouma merely tipped home a pass on the doorstep. Either way, the Ducks still won. And that's all that matters. Gibson's now 4-4-0 with 25 goals against in nine games this season.

John Gibson will get the start versus the Calgary Flames on Friday night.

It'll be Gibson's 12th career game, and his ninth this season. The 21 year old phenom is 3-4-0 with 22 goals against on just 237 shots this season with the Ducks. He was excellent for AHL Norfolk, going 6-3-2 with just 23 goals against on 323 shots in 11 games.
Feb 20 - 7:23 PM

John Gibson allowed four goals on 32 shots in a 4-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

Gibson allowed four goals on 20 shots in the second period that essentially ended the game for the Ducks. Anaheim was just completely outplayed throughout this game and were out-shot 32-25 so it's hard to blame it all on Gibson. That being said, the Ducks needed a save from him and didn't get it. Frederik Andersen looks to be on his way back soon though and that will likely mean bench duty for Gibson who is 3-4 with 2.94 goals against average in eight appearances.
Feb 19 - 2:25 AM

John Gibson will get the start in net Wednesday evening against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Gibson will make his seventh start of the season Wednesday night against a team he's never faced before in Tampa Bay. He has a 2.78 goals-against-average and .912 save percentage with one shutout in seven games played on the year.
Feb 18 - 5:47 PM

John Gibson allowed five goals on 28 shots in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Washington.

The Ducks had two leads in the first period but they were unable to fight off the Caps the rest of the way. This was just Gibson's third game since returning from a groin injury and he was clearly shaky on Sunday. Expect Gibson to get the majority of the starts while starter Frederik Andersen is on injured reserve. Gibson has a 3-3-0 record with a 2.78 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage. Many believe that Gibson is the Ducks' goaltender of the future, but we will soon find out if he can carry the load for them right now. Anaheim has lost four of their last five games.

John Gibson will get the start in Sunday's game against the Washington Capitals.

The 21-year-old is coming of a 35 save performance in a win over Carolina. He has an overall record of 3-2-0 with a 2.35 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage.
Feb 15 - 7:51 PM

John Gibson is expected to get the call in goal Sunday for the Anaheim Ducks.

Gibson returned from the minors when Frederik Andersen went down with an upper body injury and while his relief appearance for Ilya Bryzgalov was mediocre, he was outstanding getting the start on Thursday as he kicked out 35 of 36 shots in a 2-1 win over Carolina. With Ilya Bryzgalov playing terribly in net, look for Gibson to run with the net until Andersen is healthy.
