Ducks' Gibson frustrated with team's defense

Ducks' Gibson frustrated with team's defense

The Anaheim Ducks know they cana€™t keep relying on the play of goaltender John Gibson, who has saved the team with his impressive play. Most recently, Gibson sustained a 44-shot performance on Saturday (many of which were high-danger shots) against the Golden Knights, who walked away with a 3-1 win. Gibson wasna€™t thrilled with the teama€™s inability to keep those shots down,A according to The Athletica€™s Josh Cooper (subscription required).

a€œI think we just need to be better. Ita€™s getting old,a€ Gibson said with a little smirk after the 3-1 loss where he made 42 saves and his team managed just 18 shots on goal. a€œYou see the game. You can see what wea€™re doing. Ita€™s pretty self explanatory. Wea€™re not playing to the level that I think wea€™re capable of playing and I think wea€™re just being too satisfied with just being average.a€

Anaheim remains in first place in the Pacific Division at 5-2-1, but are dead last in the NHL in shots allowed as they have yielded an average of 37.0 shots per game. Gibson has been able to protect the team with his play as he boasts a .949 save percentage in his seven appearances and has a 1.91 GAA so far, but ita€™s unlikely he can keep that up.
