Numbers for Nerds: The Ducks have won 42 times when scoring more goals than the opponent. The Hurricanes have won 26 times when repeating that scenario. Obviously, scoring more goals than the other team is very important.
Team Records: Ducks (42-14-5), Hurricanes (26-24-9). 2013-14 Ducks v Canes 0-0-1.
Team Leaders: Ducks - Ryan Getzlaf (29g + 38a = 67p), Corey Perry (30g + 30a = 60p), Nick Bonino (16g + 24a = 40p). Hurricanes - Eric Staal (16g + 31a = 47p), Jeff Skinner (23g + 17a = 40p), Andrej Sekera (10g + 25a = 35p). Personally, I don't like the drop-off between the Ducks top two points scorers and then everyone else.
Goalies: Ducks - Jonas Hiller (26-9-4, .918 SV%, team has 2.28 GAA in front of him) OR Frederik Andersen (14-3-0, .928 SV%, team has 2.06 GAA in front of him). Hurricanes - Justin Peters (7-9-4, .919 SV%, team has 2.50 GAA in front of him) OR Anton Khudobin (13-8-0, .927 SV%, team has 2.17 GAA in front of him) OORR Cam Ward (6-8-5, .893 SV%, team has 3.14 GAA in front of him). As you can tell, I have no idea about the Canes netminding situation right now. All are available for trade though! Inquire within.
