Anaheim is coming off their most memorable win on Tuesday night. The Ducks earned their 1000th franchise win and Ryan Getzlaf recorded his 1000th career point. Troy Terry extended his point streak to 15 games. The Ducks were ahead a few times in the game, but needed overtime to pull past the Capitals. Trevor Zegras had two goals in the game, including the game winner.

The Ducks have outscored their opponents 33-13 during their last 8 wins. 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 27.8% efficient on the power play, which ranks 4th in the league. Their penalty kill is 86.4% efficient, which is seventh in the NHL.
