Look for John Gibson to get the start in goal Sunday in Game 3 against the Oilers.
Although nothing is official, we doubt coach Randy Carlyle is going to make any rash changes in the Ducks' crease at this point. Going into Sunday's contest, Gibson sports a 2.76 GAA and a .915 SP. Apr 30 - 9:39 AM

John Gibson allowed two goals on 23 shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

The Ducks found themselves 2-0 in the second period, and although a Jakob Silfverberg power play goal cut the lead in half, they just couldn't find a way to beat Cam Talbot a second time. Anaheim now has to go to Edmonton trailing 2-0 in the best-of-seven series. A loss on Sunday would really turn the heat up on the Ducks. Gibson owns a 3-2 record with a 2.76 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage this postseason. He isn't the reason they're down by two games in the series, but it's clear that Gibson is being outplayed by Talbot.

John Gibson will get the start in Game 2 against Edmonton on Friday night.

Gibson gave up four goals on 31 shots in Wednesday's Game 1 loss. He has a 2.92 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage during the postseason. Tonight's game is huge for the Ducks. Falling behind 2-0 with the series heading to Edmonton would be catastrophic.

John Gibson allowed four goals on 31 shots in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Anaheim is now down 1-0 in their best-of-seven series. The Ducks opened the scoring 37 seconds into the second period, when Ryan Getzlaf scored a gorgeous power play goal. Unfortunately for the Ducks, they allowed Edmonton to score the next three goals. Anaheim still managed to tie the game at three in the third frame, but Oilers defenseman Adam Larsson gave the Oilers a 4-3 lead with less than five minutes remaining, and they never looked back. Gibson now owns a 3-1 record with a 2.92 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage during the postseason. Game 2 will be held in Anaheim on Friday night.

John Gibson had a save percentage of .973 after giving up just one goal in a 2-1 victory by the Ducks over the Flames.

The Flames did not make it easy. They riffled 37 shots at Gibson compared to 25 on the other end of the ice. Gibson faced double-digit shots in each period. The goals were almost perfect distributed with 12 in the first and third periods. Notably, it was during the 13-shot second period that Gibson allowed the single goal.
Apr 20 - 12:53 AM

John Gibson was the first goalie off the ice following the Wednesday morning skate.

That suggests that Gibson will start, although indicators like that are a little less safe to bet on in the playoffs. Gibson has started in the first three playoff games, but the Ducks plans were thrown into question after he was chased out of Game 3.
Apr 19 - 1:49 PM

John Gibson is expected to be back in the crease Monday night at Calgary.

That shouldn't be surprising after he was in goal for both Anaheim wins to start the series. Gibson has a 2-0 record with a 2.00 goals-against average and a .942 save percentage in the postseason.
Apr 17 - 3:28 PM

John Gibson continued his strong start to his 2017 postseason by helping the Anaheim Ducks beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 on Saturday night.

Calgary has made Gibson work it and he has responded. He stopped 30 out of 32 shots he faced in Game 1 and he turned aside 35 shots on Saturday. Gibson was especially spry when the Flames dominated the play in the second period, only allowing a single goal despite Calgary's 15-6 shot advantage.
Apr 16 - 1:42 AM

John Gibson was off the ice first at the morning skate, indicating he will be starting in goal tonight against the Flames.

Gibson turned in a terrific performance in Game 1, turning aside 30 of 32 shots to get his team the victory in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series. The 23-year-old netminder was pushed by Jonathan Bernier late in the season but he is without a doubt the starting goaltender for Anaheim's playoff run.
Apr 15 - 1:43 PM

John Gibson turned aside 30-of-32 shots in the Ducks' 3-2 Game 1 win over Calgary on Thursday.

Gibson's stellar play late in the third period where he robbed Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuck on a 5-on-3 Flames man advantage sealed the win for the Ducks. It wasn't the only strong stops he made in this game. The goals that beat him were bang-bang plays in front of his crease that weren't entirely his fault. The 23-year-old has improved his playoff record to 2-4 to go with a 2.84 goals-against average in six games.
Apr 14 - 8:11 AM

John Gibson is projected to start in Game 1 on Thursday.

Gibson was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. Jonathan Bernier pushed himself into the conversation as a potential playoff starter, but Gibson likely secured his spot with his two strong starts on April 4 and April 6 where he allowed just one total goal.
Apr 13 - 2:30 PM

John Gibson picked up a 37 save shutout over Chicago on Thursday.

He's been really solid in four games since coming back from an injury, putting to ease the minds of many Ducks stakeholders as the playoff near. The win was his 25 in an injury shortened campaign. He has a solid 2.25 goals-against-average and .924 save percentage.
Apr 7 - 1:32 AM

It looks like John Gibson will start for Anaheim on Thursday.

Gibson was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate. This would be his second straight start after making 27 saves in a 3-1 win over Calgary on Tuesday.
Apr 6 - 3:04 PM

John Gibson faced 27 shots and let one puck get past him as the Ducks beat the Flames 3-1 Tuesday night.

Gibson needed this victory. He entered the game with three straight losses and just three wins in his last 10 games. In that span, he had two shutouts, however, and that lifted his save percentage to .925.
