"They are a really good team with really good players," Theodore said. "But my job is to make sure that when I get in there, I'm not happy with being average. I've got to be good. Niklas Backstrom is playing some great hockey for us, and when he gets the day off, I have to keep going."
The Ducks, who are one point out of a playoff spot with 20 games remaining, have dropped all seven games in which they have taken at least 40 shots on net.
"Theodore played a great game for them. He pulled some saves out of nowhere," the Ducks' new goalie said. "If it weren't for Theodore, we definitely would have had this one."
