The Ducks continue their homestand tonight against the Ottawa Senators. Anaheim is 1-0-1 on the current stretch of home games. The Ducks beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 and then lost in overtime to the Wild 5-4.
In the first meeting against Ottawa, the teams battled to a 2-2 regulation tie. Overtime couldn’t determine a winner so a shootout was needed. Former Duck Ondrej Kase and Rickard Rakell both scored to give the Ducks a 3-2 win. This will be the final meeting this season between these two teams.
Adam Henrique leads the team with 25 goals.

The Senators, like the Ducks, are probably hoping for the season to end soon as they will likely not make the postseason(though still mathematically not out of it). Ottawa is currently in seventh place in the Atlantic Division only ahead of the worst team in the league in Detroit. The Senators are on a two-game winning streak and are 5-4-1 in their last 10 games.
Ottawa averages 2.70 goals per game and also gives up 3.33 goals against per game. Their power play is 14.7% efficient and their penalty kill is 76.8% efficient.
Anthony Duclair leads the team in scoring with 23 goals.
