GameThread: Ducks at Kings (2/4/16)

Tonight's tilt may be only the second chapter of a five-game season series, but for a Ducks team that's forcing their way back into favorable playoff position, it's a big opportunity.

Numbers For Nerds

Since its inception in 1993, this rivalry has been about as tight as you would imagine it to be. The Ducks currently possess bragging rights with a slim all-time regular season series lead, with a record of 57-42-11-13. Since opening its doors in 1999, the Staples Center has hosted the Freeway Face-Off a total of 42 times before tonight, and unsurprisingly, it's the Kings who hold a slight edge on home ice; Anaheim is 17-18-2-5 in that city up the road. The record is somewhat reflective of the scoring differential, as LA puts an average of 2.9 points on the board to Anaheim's 2.48 per game in that arena.
