Anaheim Outlook

The Ducks are on a roll winning their last seven games in a row. They beat Montreal, New Jersey, Arizona, and St. Louis at home. Anaheim then went on the road and beat Vancouver in a thriller that needed overtime. They took down Seattle high scoring affair 7-4. The Ducks returned home and then beat Vancouver again this time 5-1.

The Ducks have outscored their opponents 30-11 during that time span. This is the longest winning streak the Ducks have had with Dallas Eakins as the head coach.

Anaheim continues to thrive on special teams. The Ducks are 28.3% efficient on the power play, which ranks 5th in the league. Their penalty kill is 86.4% efficient, which is tied for fifth in the NHL.

The Anaheim Ducks have 999 franchise wins and Ryan Getzlaf has 999 career points in Anaheim. Tonight could be a special game for the Ducks on many levels.
