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. Giguere made 18 saves to lead the Avalanche to a 4-2 victory.
