Jean-Sebastien Giguere is not the overnight sensation some people might think. Living in Calgary, where he used to play, I have been watching him for many years. I have seen where he was and I have seen where he has gone. His success is based purely on hard work. When he was in Calgary, he realized he had a long way to go to be a good NHL goaltender. He was willing to listen and put in the work to get to the next level. And then, he was willing to continue to work hard to get to where he is now.

In a regular season when so much has gone right for the Ducks, Teemu Selanne closed it perfectly Sunday by tugging a fellow Anaheim legend onto the ice for a final skate and embrace in front of an adoring sellout crowd. The Ducks (54-20-8) produced their NHL-best 26th comeback victory with a 3-2 overtime triumph over the Colorado Avalanche at Honda Center. Afterward, Selanne, 43, found his friend and former Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who's expected to join him in retirement at season's end. “Teemu's such a class act and he's known for a while that this possibly could be my last game,” Giguere said after his 33-save night for the Central Division champions.

Ryane Clowe scored with less than seven minutes left in the third period, leading the San Jose Sharks to a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night. Dan Boyle and Joe Pavelski also had goals for the Sharks, who sent Jean-Sebastien Giguere to his first loss since being acquired from the Ducks on Jan. 31. Giguere had posted shutouts in his first two games with Toronto. Tyler Bozak and Phil Kessel scored for the Maple Leafs, who nearly tied it with a flurry in the final minute of regulation.

The Ducks' credibility is soaring, with six wins in eight games and a three-game home sweep of Minnesota, the Kings and once-unbeaten San Jose Sharks in their immediate rear view. "We have to enjoy this now," defenseman Sheldon Souray said after slapping in Monday night's winning goal against the Sharks. "It might not come as smoothly down the road. " "Down the road" starts Wednesday in Colorado, the beginning of a six-game trip in 11 days that includes stops at St. Louis (Saturday)

Jean-Sebastien Giguere grew up as a goaltender in Anaheim, developing from a raw kid into one of the few players from a Stanley Cup runner-up to be voted the most valuable player in the playoffs. Four years later, in 2007, he and his teammates capped a splendid season with a Cup title, proving sun and sand can coexist with good hockey. He grew up here as a person, too. He became a husband and a father, sharing his joys with his fans and gaining strength from their support when his first son, Maxime, was born with a damaged eye. That's why on Sunday, after he waived his no-trade clause and agreed to be traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in a deal that will give the Ducks salary-cap relief next season and give him a chance to again be a starter, he knew he was saying goodbye to teammates and to a phase of his life.

Ducks tonight AT TORONTO When: 4 PST. Where: Air Canada Centre. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; Radio: 830. Records: Ducks 26-19-4, Maple Leafs 18-22-5. Record vs. Maple Leafs (2009-10): 0-1-0. Update: The last time the teams met, Jean-Sebastien Giguere was still a Duck and his team was slumping. Different story now. The Ducks are going for their third win in a row and have won eight of their last 10 games. And Giguere?

A couple of weeks ago, the Ducks couldn't trust their goaltending, and goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere didn't seem to trust himself or the defense in front of him on the rare occasions he played. Even Coach Randy Carlyle was only partly joking Friday when somebody said his players hadn't looked like they'd played this game before. "I agree with you," he said to laughs all around. That's because the Ducks had just ended the Chicago Blackhawks' eight-game winning streak with a 3-0 shutout at Honda Center, two days after Chicago dealt a 7-2 defeat to San Jose, which has the NHL's best record.

Jonas Hiller is no longer a renter. He closed escrow on a place on the sand in Newport Beach in December, ending his annual ritual of moving out of a furnished rental at season's end to make way for summer tenants. Far more important for the Ducks, the 28-year-old Swiss goaltender has taken up residence in a small but very valuable piece of real estate between the goalposts at the Honda Center. That six-by-four-foot opening used to be the home of Jean-Sebastien Giguere, winner of the 2003 Conn Smythe Trophy and the 2007 Stanley Cup. Now it belongs to Hiller, whose 21 wins, 2.39 goals-against average, .929 save percentage and back-to-back shutouts earned him a spot on the NHL All-Star roster Tuesday, one of six goalies on the team announced for the Jan. 30 game in Raleigh, N.C. "It's a great feeling to have the chance go there and it's a great honor and I'm really excited," Hiller said.

With a goal and an assist Tuesday in a 5-4 shootout loss at Phoenix, Dustin Brown had his first multi-point game since Jan. 14. The Avalanche on Tuesday added depth up front by acquiring gritty Steve Downie from Tampa Bay for defenseman Kyle Quincey, who was traded on to Detroit.

It takes a lot to build a successful homecoming. On and off the ice. The Ducks helpfully complied at both ends of Jean-Sebastien Giguere's return experience, honoring the former Anaheim goalie with a video tribute in the first period Saturday night. Fans at Honda Center paid homage too, with standing ovations for the man who helped the Ducks win the Stanley Cup in 2007. The current Ducks didn't do much to trouble Giguere, who was playing in Anaheim for the first time since he was traded in 2010.

Homecoming, delayed. After almost two years, former Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere gets to say thank you to the fans in the building where he helped Anaheim win the Stanley Cup in 2007. Giguere, who is now with the Colorado Avalanche, was traded to Toronto on Jan. 31, 2010, and the Ducks happened to be on a trip when the deal was completed. The Ducks will honor him with a video tribute during the game's first TV timeout Saturday night at Honda Center. "It's going to be nice to be able to go to where I feel is my second home and where my kids have been born," he said Friday morning on a conference call with reporters.

BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Olympian Tim Thomas, back from Vancouver and back from a slump that sent the reigning Vezina Trophy winner to the bench, made 24 saves in regulation and overtime and added three more in the shootout Thursday night to lead the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Miroslav Satan, who scored Boston's first goal, had the only goal in the shootout. Thomas stopped Tyler Bozak with a pad save to end it, then started pumping his glove to celebrate Boston's first win in Boston since the New Year's Day Winter Classic, and the Bruins' first win of 2010 in the TD Garden.
