The Mighty Ducks are one of about a half-dozen teams attempting to sign center Tim Taylor, who played for the Boston Bruins last season. Taylor, an unrestricted free agent, is believed to be seeking a four-year deal worth between $1-2 million a year. He made $675,000 with the Bruins last season. Duck General Manager Pierre Gauthier said he "preferred not to comment on things that have not happened." He had made it clear that building a checking line was a priority this off-season.

For those grading on a curve, this game was progress. OK, so the Ducks didn't get a victory Tuesday night, losing, 3-1, to the Montreal Canadiens in front of 17,510 at the Molson Centre. They didn't get run out of the rink either. And that brought some smiles to the dressing room afterward. Jan Bulis and Brian Savage scored goals, building a 2-0 lead and Yanic Perreault chipped in an empty-netter. Goalie Jeff Hackett made a handful of nice saves when they were needed.
