The Ducks may have figured out the solution to the back-to-backs problem: don't show up for the first one. We'll see how that works out tonight.
For those wondering where the Ducks are in the playoff race: they are now four points out of the 7th/8th mix which currently consumes Nashville and Calgary. For those wondering why this team continues to fall back every time it secures a forward area in the standings: there are no answers.
Anaheim will see this Oilers team twice more, once at the end of March and again at the end of the season. At this rate, both contests may be academic, and the Ducks may find out tonight that this team, for all its woes, has their number. Four days ago, Edmonton almost left Anaheim with a victory after two shorthanded markers; the Ducks' effort then, their effort last night, and their tragic record on the road (having dropped 11 of their last 16 in regulation) set a grim forecast on this afternoon's game.
GETZ-WATCH continues. And according to The OC Register, tonight may be the Regina native's last chance to prove he's ready to go or see himself replaced by Jeff Carter.
I will only be here for the first period of the game. Some of you have sat on the sidelines for magumbo's sake and will be watching your first game in a week or so. For what you see tonight, we all apologize.
Post any game info and lineup changes in the comments.
