Toni Duggan thinks the arrival of Swedish striker Kosovare Asllani will help Manchester City Women attract even larger crowds this season. Citys average gate for home matches last term was 1500 supporters - more than double the 2014 league average - and the club also set an FA WSL record in last years season finale when 3,180 spectators attended their 2-1 win over Notts County Ladies.Asllani arrived from Paris Saint-Germain in the close season after a prolific three-and-a-half year spell where she scored 45 goals in all competitions for the French side. And England striker Duggan believes the lure of Champions League football will help City attract more players of Asllanis calibre in the future.Shes really good and Ive loved linking up with her in pre-season, Duggan told Sky Sports News HQ.Its sometimes difficult for new players but she seems to have settled in fine. Shes that type of character and Im sure shell attract the crowds as well because of her flair, her pace and her style of play, and she can also score great goals. Duggan hopes City can continue playing attractive football Every top player wants to play in the Champions League and bringing players like Asllani and Jane Ross to the club adds to the group that we have and will help us keep progressing as a teamHopefully she can do a job for us.City Women moved into the state-of the-art Academy Stadium - located on the Etihad Campus - last season, a week after the ground played host to England Womens friendly against China. Pablo Zabaleta at Citys Academy Stadium Season ticket sales have almost doubled ahead of the new season and Duggan hopes City can continue playing free-flowing attacking football in order for that trend to continue.We know there is a long way to go but doubling the number of season tickets we have sold over the past few years has been a great achievement for the club, Duggan said, as she personally delivered season tickets and signed shirts to some lucky fans along with captain Steph Houghton. City have almost doubled season ticket sales for next season I think part of the success is people have been attracted to our football. People want to come along and watch a good game of football and thats what we have given themIn the past two years of the WSL its gone down to the last day which also adds to the excitement and long may that continue.I think the city of Manchester has been crying out for a womens team and I think they have really got behind us in the last two seasons.The support has been incredible and its nice that I could come along and give some of our loyal fans a season ticket for the rest of the season. Hopefully they enjoy it and hopefully we can put in the performances that keep attracting the crowds, because its been brilliant.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- When the Chicago Blackhawks make their usual visit to Anaheim on Black Friday, they always have a raucous cheering section of jersey-clad fans crowded against the glass from the pregame warmup onward.Although those fans didnt get to see captain Jonathan Toews this time, that only made the Blackhawks latest win in Orange County even more impressive.Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist, and the Blackhawks hung on to beat the Ducks 3-2 for their fifth consecutive win in the clubs post-Thanksgiving rivalry game. The Western Conference leaders have won five straight regular-season games in Anaheim since March 2013.Thats a big two points against a good team without maybe our most important player, Kane said. Youve got to feel good about that one.Artem Anisimov and Ryan Hartman also scored as the Blackhawks snapped their first two-game skid since opening week even without Toews, who missed his first game of the season due to an upper-body injury. Playing the sixth game of its draining circus road trip, Chicago took a 3-0 lead in the second period and hung on against Anaheims late surge with superb play from Corey Crawford, who made 34 saves.When youre missing a captain and one of your better players, you need to step up, Hartman said. I think we all did that and played a really solid game.Nick Ritchie and Jakob Silfverberg scored and John Gibson stopped 22 shots for the Ducks, who wrapped up a five-game homestand on a three-game skid despite fairly solid play during that stretch. Anaheim is used to feeling frustration after facing the Blackhawks, who knocked them out of the 2015 playoffs in a memorable seven-game Western Conference finals.The Ducks fell to 4-4-2 against the Blackhawks on Black Friday. They havent won this rivalry game since 2009.We just have to find a way to get us over the top, Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle said. Were going to focus on the process. Its hard, and theres a lot of positives, but you cant go down 3-0 to a hockey club and expect to come back in every game.The Ducks inexplicably poor production from their top line continued. Corey Perry hasnt scoreed a goal in 13 games, and captain Ryan Getzlaf hasnt found the net in 15 games since Oct.dddddddddddd 16.Weve got to score goals, and that comes on me, Perrs and whoever plays on our wing, Getzlaf said. We play a lot of minutes, so weve got to put more pucks on net and score some goals. Weve been getting lots of opportunities, lots of looks. When the season starts turning, youve got to put those pucks in the net.The Ducks hosted an afternoon game on the day after Thanksgiving for the 16th time in their 22-season history, including 10 meetings with the Blackhawks. The game has become an annual tradition for both franchises -- and for hundreds of Blackhawks fans who show up in balmy Anaheim in even larger numbers than usual to roar for their cold-weather hometown.Anisimov put the Blackhawks up in the first period by finishing a two-man rush set up by Brent Seabrooks beautiful outlet pass to Kane. Anisimovs ninth goal of the season snapped his seven-game drought.Kane scored his seventh goal on a long shot off another pass from Seabrook during a power play early in the second period.Hartman connected late in the period, but Ritchie trimmed the lead 10 seconds later with an impressive shot in the slot, going through Seabrooks legs and into the top corner.An apparent goal by Anaheims Ondrej Kase was waved off early in the third period when the puck went off his glove before ricocheting into the net. Moments later, Silfverberg scored his seventh goal of a standout season on a wraparound.Game notes Toews was injured Wednesday at San Jose, and he is questionable for Saturdays game at Los Angeles.
