The Anaheim Ducks began their four game road trip in Chicago this past Friday. The Ducks started off the game with a goal but ended up getting behind and losing 4-2. Mistakes in the second period cost them and they couldn’t recover.
The day after the game in Chicago, Sportsnet’s Elliott Friedman said the Ducks could be looking to take on bad contracts in order to bring in more youth on the team. General Manager Bob Murray could try to make this type of move, but will he? For more visit: Friedman Report
