Anaheim Outlook

The Ducks took down the Arizona Coyotes last night, who had been riding a six-game winning streak. Jakob Silfverberg got his team-leading 18th goal to give Anaheim an early 1-0 lead. The Coyotes did tie things up late in the first period. The Ducks were then able to pull away in the third a pair of power play goals. It appeared the Ducks also had an empty-net goal, but it was challenged and ruled no rule. The Ducks won by a final of 3-1.

Injury Updates:

Brendan Guhle was knocked out of last night’s contest. He is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

Derek Grant(upper-body) and Nick Ritchie(lower-body) are both questionable to play tonight.

Chad Johnson still remains on the IR.
