Lmfao both teams are so beat up
- Rickard Rackell is currently the Ducks leader in points and goals, with 14 and 6, respectively
- Andrew Cogliano and Rackell currently lead Anaheim in assists
- Ryan Miller (yes, that one) currently leads the Ducks in goaltending SV% with a whopping .943. On a sample size of 4 games and two of them were against middling teams with scoring issues.
WELCOME TO THE INJURY BOWL
No two teams in hockey right now are having such painful inconsistency problems brought about chiefly from having to play a good portion of their AHL roster. Both squads are at .500, 5th or 6th in division, and missing 4 players due to injury, all of whom are pretty important to their success.
This matchup will basically be a battle of the depth and schematics...and boy in the schematics department does Anaheim come up short with everyone’s favorite coach for giving up multi-goal leads by sitting on them: Randy Carlyle.
This game will probably be one of two things: Played at a hundred miles per hour or a 2-1 snorefest that I will be awake for and I alone.
FUN FUN FUN!
