Anaheim Outlook

The Anaheim Ducks are coming off a solid 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings. The Ducks scored first and built a 3-0 lead in the second period. The Kings were able to get on the board with a questionable goal and then applied pressure throughout the third period. Thankfully for Anaheim, Ryan Miller was there to keep the Kings from rallying.

The Ducks will continue their five-game road trip tonight in Ottawa. They will then play Montreal, Toronto, and Buffalo. Anaheim is 9-16-2 on the road this season.

Adam Henrique leads the team with 17 goals.

Team News:

Daniel Sprong was recalled from San Diego.
