On Friday night the Ducks played the Philadelphia Flyers for the second and final time this season. Anaheim won the first meeting 7-4, but Philadelphia won the second game by a 6-3 final. The Ducks got down 3-0 and they try to mount a comeback, but ultimately still lost. Leo Carlsson scored his first NHL hat trick. He is the youngest player in franchise history to do so. The Ducks will look to get back to winning tonight against the struggling Sharks.
Anaheim has gone 6-4-0 in their last 10 games. They are currently in fourth place in the Pacific Division.
