Numbers for Nerds: Should this game go into overtime, one team will likely be a lot more concerned about their fortune than the other. The Ducks are a perfect 2-0 in extra sessions so far this year (Philadelphia in a shootout and Dallas in overtime). Colorado, on the other hand, has seen FIVE of their 12 games go past regulation, and they are winless in all of them (Toronto, Florida, Winnipeg, San Jose, St. Louis). The last time these two teams treated fans to some free hockey was on April 13th in Anaheim, when the Ducks took a 3-2 decision in overtime before the memorable Selanne/Jiggy victory lap.
