The Ducks are flirting with a losing streak as they open up a seven game homestand tonight. And after two dismal post Olympics efforts, the only guaranteed energy will come from Saku Koivu, who will hopefully be trying to stick it to his old team. Although, honestly, Koivu's often the only one out there still trying when the rest of the team gives up.
Were the Ducks saving their best stuff for the tail end of back-to-backs? They've done it before. One thing is certain, they've got to stop the bleeding tonight lest they waste the post deadline schedule the NHL spotted them, a docket that keeps them mostly at the Pond until the end of the season.
I am going to a birthday function and will be hustling back to make it for the comments and/or to the game. Daniel will not be around tonight.
Post any game info and lineup changes in the comments.
