It's the third preseason game in as many days, will the Ducks be able to bounce back from a thrashing at the hands of the Kings last night?

So, based on Cory's report and Bruce Boudreau's reaction, the salient quote being "We were bad from the goaltender out," it sounds like the Ducks were just as bad last night as the Coyotes were on Monday. While it is only preseason and the result is ultimately meaningless, a 6-0 loss is a pretty good indicator that the individual performances you need to evaluate weren't up to snuff.

From Adrian Dater of the Denver Post (via the ubiquitous Eric Stephens) here are the lineups for tonight:

The Ducks' side looks rather similar to the team who put a beat down on the lackluster Coyotes Monday night, with the notable, and fully understandable, absence of one Mr. Teemu Selanne.

On the other side of the ice, this will be Colorado's preseason opener and kind of, sort of the debut of 2013 first overall draft pick Nathan MacKinnon. So they've got that going for them... which is nice.
