The Ducks started the road trip with a 5-2 loss to the Nashville Predators. The Ducks fell flat against the Predators and the task doesn’t get any easier tonight against the Lightning. Anaheim is currently tied for third place in the Pacific Division and are four points out of first place. Anaheim has a tall order tonight as they try to slow down the best offense in the league while generating some scoring on their end.
Hampus Lindholm(lower-body), Patrick Eaves(back), and Cam Fowler(face) are all still on the IR. Fowler had surgery a week ago Friday for his injured cheek. There hasn’t been an official word on how long he will be out, but it could be 1-2 months. Carter Rowney(Upper-Body) has been practicing but he is still on the IR. Corey Perry(knee) and Korbinian Holzer(wrist) are on the long-term injury list.
John Gibson, 8-8-4 GAA 2.57 SV% .926(Probable)
Tampa Bay Outlook
The first place Lightning are currently on a three-game winning streak. They beat Florida, Chicago, and New Jersey. They average 3.79 goals per game with is the best in the league. Their power play is the fifth best in the league at 27.9%. They do give up 2.83 goals against so this could be a high scoring affair. The Lightning will look to work the forecheck in order to draw penalties and get their power play unit on the ice.
Louis Domingue, 8-3-0 GAA 3.19 SV% .905(Probable)
