The Ducks are currently on a four-game winning streak after beating Tampa Bay, Florida, Carolina, and Washington. In the Ducks final road game, they were down 5-1 to the Capitals and were able to rally by scoring five straight goals to win 6-5. The Ducks became the first team in NHL history to record a four-goal comeback against a defending Stanley Cup Champion. Anaheim will look to continue to build off their current momentum tonight.
Anaheim is in second place in the Pacific Division, three points behind Calgary. Pontus Aberg leads the teams with nine goals. Ryan Getzlaf has eight goals and leads the team with 22 total points(8 G + 14 A).
Yesterday General Manager Bob Murray provided updates on Patrick Eaves and Cam Fowler. Eaves has been dealing with a broken rib, which also caused back spasms. He is out indefinitely. Fowler is planning to work out this weekend and hopefully start skating in 7-10 days. He could be back in mid-January.

It’s been a rough season so far for the Blackhawks. Coach Joel Quenneville was let go after the 15th game of the season. Chicago had a 6-6-3 record at that time and have gone 3-8-2 since then. Chicago has had issues with their defense and special teams this season. They give up on average 3.68 goals a game, which is the second worst in the league. Their power play is 12.5% efficient, which is the worst in the NHL. Their penalty kill is 73.5% efficient, which is ranked 29th. Coach Jeremy Colliton has his work cut out for him if he wants to turn things around in Chicago.
