Numbers for Nerds: 8. Someone asked me during the Phoenix game how many times the Ducks have forced a goalie change. So I went and counted. The Ducks have forced goalie changes eight times thus far in this 2013-14 season (Ottawa, Buffalo, Phoenix twice, Calgary, St. Louis, Detroit, and San Jose). The one time the Ducks have changed goalies resulted in a 6-3 rout over the Dallas Stars on home ice.
