Anaheim Outlook

The Anaheim Ducks are coming off a 4-3 win against the Vegas Golden Knights. It was the first win at home in franchise history against Vegas. Anaheim was able to build a 4-1 lead in the contest. The Golden Knights did score two late goals, one with 5.7 seconds left, to try to rally. The Ducks power play converted twice to help Anaheim earn the win.

Podcast: The Anaheim Gulls

The Ducks will close out their season series against the Flyers tonight. Anaheim lost earlier in the month to the Flyers by a 4-1 score. The Ducks also lost Troy Terry(knee) and Derek Grant(shoulder) to injuries in that contest. Anaheim will be looking to even the score tonight.

Jakob Silfverberg leads the team with 13 goals.

Team News:

Daniel Sprong was reassigned to San Diego. He was an emergency recall last week because Anaheim did not have enough healthy players to skate against the New York Rangers. As a result of being an emergency recall, Sprong did not have to clear waivers. 

Rickard Rakell is still out with an upper-body injury.
