Patrick Maroon picked up an assist on Friday to extend his points streak to four games.

Maroon has been getting time on the first line with Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf in what is one of the best gigs in the NHL. Maroon now has six goals and 25 points in 42 games this season and is worth picking up in most pools at this time.

Rickard Rakell scored a pretty power play goal in Anaheim's 4-1 loss to Chicago on Friday night.

Corey Perry deserves an Academy Award for fooling and freezing Corey Crawford on a fake-shot, and then showed off his passing prowess with a slap-pass over Brent Seabrook's stick onto Rickard Rakell's. The young Swede did the rest for his fifth goal of the season. He now has 17 points with six coming with the man advantage this season.

Frederik Andersen was beaten for four goals on 33 shots in Friday night's 4-1 loss to the Blackhawks.

This was not Andersen's finest work as he was beaten cleanly three times. The Ducks have now allowed 10 combined goals in two games to the Blackhawks and Sharks. Andersen falls to 27-7-5 with a .918 save percentage and 2.27 GAA through 41 games this season.

Eric Brewer and Rene Bourque will be healthy scratches against the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

Coach Boudreau said Brewer will "probably" return to the Ducks' lineup Tuesday against Carolina. In 19 games, 17 with Tampa Bay, Brewer has accumulated four points, 18 PIMs, 22 blocks, and 35 hits. Bourque meanwhile has two goals and nine points in 37 games, mostly with Anaheim, this season. Neither have much fantasy value.

Frederik Andersen will face the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night after playing the final 24 minutes of Thursday's game against San Jose.

Andersen has been a rock for the Ducks all season long, compiling a 27-6-5 record with just 86 goals against over 40 games played. In his one previous career game against Chicago, Andersen turned away 34 of 37 shots sent his way in defeat.

Eric Brewer (foot) has been removed from the injured reserve list.

Colby Robak was sent to the minors to free up a roster spot. Brewer hasn't played since Dec. 1. He has four assists in 19 games this season.
Jan 30 - 2:16 PM

Colby Robak will report to AHL Norfolk.

Robak was placed on waivers Thursday and went unclaimed. He's only played in one game after Dec. 19. His demotion freed up a spot for Eric Brewer to come off the injured reserve list.
Jan 30 - 2:15 PM

Patrick Maroon scored a goal in a 6-3 loss on Thursday.

Maroon is on a three-game goal streak and five-game point streak. He has six goals and 24 points in 41 contests this season.
Jan 30 - 10:29 AM

Although Ilya Bryzgalov struggles continued against San Jose on Thursday, he's expected to get more work with the Ducks.

Recalling John Gibson would be the alternative, but his playing time has been limited this season due to illness and injury, so he's expected to stay in the minors so he can continue to get regular work. Meanwhile, the Ducks will face a hectic schedule in February. "Starting next Wednesday, we've got so many games," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We're not going to run with Freddie the whole time. Bryz is going to get an opportunity again." Bryzgalov allowed six goals on 25 shots before he was replaced by Frederik Andersen halfway through Thursday's game. That gives Bryzgalov a 4.68 GAA and .832 save percentage in five contests.
Jan 30 - 10:27 AM

Matt Beleskey put home his 19th goal of the season as Anaheim fell to San Jose 6-3 on Thursday night.

It was a classic garbage goal as Beleskey put home the rebound Ryan Kesler set up for him. Beleskey finished the night with two shots and hits, and one block in 14:47 of work. He also now shares the team lead in goals with Corey Perry.
Jan 30 - 3:08 AM

Andrew Cogliano opened the scoring in the Ducks' 6-3 loss to Sharks on Thursday night.

Anaheim's night got off to a hot start when Cogliano put home the Rickard Rakell induced rebound, but then the Sharks rolled off six straight goals. Cogs finished the night with four shots and six hits through 12:58 of work, including over three minutes on the penalty kill. He now has six goals and 13 points through 49 games.
Jan 30 - 2:57 AM

Ilya Bryzgalov allowed six goals on 25 shots in 36 minutes to San Jose in Anaheim's 6-3 loss on Thursday night.

After Andrew Cogliano opened the scoring, the Sharks would go on to score six straight goals over a 27-minute span. Not that Bryz got much help defensively, but many of the goals were legitimately soft. Bryz was eventually pulled in favor of Frederik Andersen to stop the bleeding late in the second period. He's now 1-3-0 through five games and has allowed 18 goals this season.
Jan 30 - 2:52 AM

Frederik Andersen replaced Ilya Bryzgalov after he allowed six goals on 25 shots through 36 minutes. Andersen meanwhile stopped all eight shots sent his way.

It was a relatively easy time for Andersen through just 24 minutes of work, but the damage had already been done as Anaheim fell to San Jose 6-3. The game was never that close, though, as the Sharks put six straight past Bryz. Through 40 games Andersen is 27-6-0 with 86 goals against.
Jan 30 - 2:45 AM

Colby Robak has been put on waivers by Anaheim.

He has played in five games with the Ducks after he was acquired from Florida in exchange for Jesse Blacker and future considerations.
Jan 29 - 5:22 PM

Ilya Bryzgalov is probable to start for the Ducks Thursday against San Jose.

He was the first goalie off the ice and the Ducks play again Friday versus Chicago, so Frederik Andersen will probably play that contest. Bryzgalov made 14 saves in a 5-1 win over New Jersey on Jan. 16 in his last outing.
