By Michael Walters

The Anaheim Ducks just completed a five-game road trip that saw the team go 4-1-0. After dropping the opening road game in Nashville, the Ducks went on to win the next four contests. Anaheim was able to rally in the final game of the road trip from four goals down to beat the Capitals 6-5 in dramatic fashion.

The Ducks sit just one point out of first place in the Pacific Division, but are they a contender or just a pretender?

On this show, we talk about Anaheim’s realistic chances of staying atop the Pacific Division and going deep into the playoffs. We also discuss the play of Pontus Aberg and Nick Ritchie while analyzing the recent lineups the Ducks have utilized.
