Los Angeles is extremely unhelpful as we all know, so this number remains the same at the moment. Like Kyle said, it will decrease whenever the Ducks earn points or the Sharks lose them, meaning an Anaheim win tonight will drop the magic number down to five.
On an unrelated note, the amount of goals that the Ducks have allowed on the season is only three more than the Predators have scored. Clearly this stat doesn't favor the wild idea of a Nashville blowout.
Ducks: 50-18-8, 108 points, 1st in the Pacific Division
Predators: 33-32-11, 77 points, 7th in the Central Division
Season series: Ducks lead 2-0 (4-3, 5-2)
Ducks: Ryan Getzlaf (31 goals-53 assists-84 points), Corey Perry (41-37-78), Nick Bonino (20-27-47)
Predators: Shea Weber (21-29-50), Craig Smith (20-24-44), Patric "Horny" (yes, really) Hornqvist (17-26-43)
Ducks: Jonas Hiller (29-11-7, 2.41 GAA, .913 save percentage)
Predators: Pekka Rinne (7-10-2, 2.89 GAA, .898 save percentage)
