Game Notes:

· Tonight will be the Duck’s Home Opener. Fans are encouraged to arrive early as the Ducks players will be greeting fans at the white carpet and interviewing with Kent French.

· The Ducks are coming off of their first win last Thursday against the Philadelphia Flyers and are now 1-3-1

· The Vancouver Canucks are coming off of their first loss last night (in a shootout) against the Los Angeles Kings making them 4-0-1.

· Unfortunately, the Ducks have a 6-16 record for their home openers since becoming a team in 1993. However, their last home opener victory was back in the 2012-13 season against…the Vancouver Canucks!
