Anaheim Outlook

The Ducks started the road trip against the Calgary Flames last night and pulled out a dramatic overtime 3-2 win. After battling to a 1-1 tie in the first period, it was all Calgary in the second period. John Gibson kept the Ducks in the game as the Flames were only able to one score more goal.

Anaheim was able to get a goal late in the third period to tie the game on the power play. Then in overtime, Troy Terry hit Jamie Drysdale with a pass at the side of the net and he slammed it home for the win.

The Ducks continue to play well on special teams. Anaheim has scored a power play goal in all three games so far this season and is 4-for-11 or 36.3%. On the penalty kill they are 12-for-13 good for 92.3%

The issue is their 5-on-5 play where they only have two goals so far this season. Another concern which has seemed to plague the Ducks in recent seasons is injuries. The Ducks might be a few players tonight.

Injury News:

Mason McTavish(lower-body) received a hard check along the boards during the second period and did not return in the game. He was placed on the IR.

Max Jones(upper body) left the game early in the third period and it’s unclear how he was injured. He was also placed on the IR.

Hampus Lindholm(foot) blocked a shot with his left foot/ankle and had to limp off the ice late in the third period last night.

Roster Moves:

Sam Carrick and Sonny Milano were recalled from San Diego

Edmonton Outlook

The Oilers are off to  a 2-0-0 start. They beat the Vancouver Canucks in their season opener, 3-2 in a shootout. In their last game they knocked out the Flames 5-2 as Connor McDavid scored a hat trick.

Edmonton has been red hot on the power play scoring three times in six chances, good for 50%. There are averaging 33.5 shots on goal per game, but they do also give up 42.5 shots against as well.

The Oilers do get to face the Ducks in the second game of back-to-backs, who might be without some players. If Edmonton can get a few goals early, then they have a good chance of earning two points.
