The Ducks are looking to start the season 2-0 for the first time since the 2012-13 campaign, while the Flyers are looking to come out of their California road trip with 2 wins in 3 games. The Ducks will have to figure out how to get pucks past Brian Elliott in order to do so. It didn't seem to be too much of a problem to do so in April, so why not now? It's game #2 of the season, so let's have fun and watch some hockey!
