Anaheim Outlook

The Ducks are on a roll winning their last six games in a row. They beat Montreal, New Jersey, Arizona, and St. Louis at home. Anaheim then went on the road and beat Vancouver in a thriller that needed overtime. They took down Seattle high scoring affair 7-4. The Ducks have outscored their opponents 25-10 during that time span. This is the longest winning streak the Ducks have had with Dallas Eakins as the head coach.

Anaheim continues to thrive on special teams. The Ducks are 26.2% efficient on the power play, which ranks 5th in the league. Their penalty kill is 86.1% efficient, which ranks 8th in the NHL.

Troy Terry leads the team in scoring with 11 goals and has a league leading 13 game point streak.

Injury News:

Isac Lundestrom who was knocked out of last game, appears to be deemed fit to play tonight.

Vancouver Outlook

The Canucks have got 3-6-1 in their last 10 games. After losing to Anaheim in overtime, the Canucks dropped their next two games. They gave up seven goals to Colorado and another seven goals to Vegas. The Canucks need to figure things out defensively or the might be in for another long night.

Their special teams have been subpar. They convert the power play 15.5% of the time, which is 23rd in the league. And on the penalty kill they are 63.3% efficient, which is dead last in the league.

J.T. Miller leads the team in scoring each with seven goals.
