6. Anaheim Ducks

Last Week’s Record: 1-1-0

Overall Record: 12-14-5

What’s Good?

The Ducks’ goaltender duo of Frederik Andersen and John Gibson is doing alright and… well… that’s it.

What’s Bad?

In 2014-15, Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry combined for 125 points. This season, they combine for 38 points in 31 games. Still okay, but not nearly enough to carry the team into playoff contention. Wait, that was a lie? Of course, the Ducks are still in contention, but they wouldn’t be in any other division. Two goals in two games last week — that’s just not enough.

What’s Next?

The Ducks’ four-game road trip continues in New York, with back-to-back games against the Rangers and Islanders — not an easy task. Anaheim needs to pick up scoring, starting with their first-line duo, if they want to take some points home with them. However, no matter if they win or lose, they will easily stay in playoff contention. The Ducks are only four points behind the Canucks, but have four games in hand.
