Ducks forwards Kesler, Silfverberg notch highlight-reel goals vs. Coyotes

Wednesday March 4th, 2015

Not only is Ryan Kesler adept at killing penalties, but the Anaheim Ducks forward has also shown a knack for racking up shorthanded goals.

Over parts of his first 10 NHL seasons, all with the Canucks, he scored 10 shorties. On Tuesday night, his 64th game with the Ducks, he picked up his 11th and did it in pretty grand style against the Coyotes.

Kesler's goal staked Anaheim to a 1-0 lead in the first period, though teammate Jakob Silfverberg did his best to one-up him in the third with a highlight-reel tally of his own.

Silfverberg finished with a pair of assists (including one of Kesler's goal) as the Ducks dealt Arizona its 10th straight loss.
