The Ducks will look to break their six-game losing streak tonight. In their last game against the Flyers, Anaheim tied up the game late only to see Philadelphia regain the lead shortly after. The Ducks rallied twice in the game to tie the score, but couldn’t hang on to at least force overtime. For more on the Ducks season so far visit: Anaheim October Review
Yesterday there was a flurry of roster moves. Ben Street was placed on waivers and cleared them today. He was assigned to San Diego. Sam Steel and Joseph Blandisi were both reassigned to San Diego yesterday. The Ducks recalled Kiefer Sherwood, Kalle Kossila, and Marcus Pettersson yesterday.
Max Comtois(knee), Patrick Eaves(shoulder), Ondrej Kase(concussion), and Carter Rowney(upper body) are all on the injured reserve list. Nick Ritchie(upper body) did not play in the game against San Jose or Philadelphia. Josh Manson has an upper-body injury and is day-to-day. There are rumblings that Eaves might be ready as soon as tonight.
