We've reached that point in the year where the NCAA hockey tournament has consumed my soul. I could pretend I'm watching the NHL, but we're beyond that.
The Ducks are positioned well in the standings and hoping to benefit from a Predators team that still has the Canucks and Red Wings next week and a Kings team that will be trying to find its way without Anze Kopitar. A win against the eliminated Avalanche is key for a Ducks team that will face teams jockeying for position for the remainder of the schedule.
As a heads-up, we plan to put out a cattle call for writers in the near future. If you want to be the reason I don't have to stop watching NCAA hockey to write a gameday, shoot me an email at anaheimcalling[at]gmail.com
