The Ducks gave away points in overtime and shootouts last season, when they had 13 losses after regulation play, but Coach Randy Carlyle said he is determined to avoid a repeat in 2018-19. Judging by one frenetic, 5-minute extra period so far this season, hea€™s gotten his wish.

a€œI think we were negligent last year at the beginning of the year,a€ Carlyle said. a€œIf you look at the 3-on-3 in the overtime record, I think we were 0-5 to start, so it was kind of a thorn in our side. What wea€™ve tried to do is pick some points out that wea€™ll bring to our players and practice them.a€

Carlyle said he had hoped to cover a few basic principles of 3-on-3 play during training camp, but he didna€™t get to them until Tuesday, a day after the Ducks played a solid, attacking OT period against the Detroit Red Wings. The Ducks didna€™t score, but they didna€™t give up a score, either.

The Ducks defeated the Red Wings in a shootout.

What was new during OT was a clear sense that the Ducks had a plan, and they stuck with it. They maintained possession and werena€™t afraid to skate in reserve in order to change personnel and get fresh bodies on the ice. They attacked and also defended with a sense of purpose.
