Number For Nerds:

Anaheim’s vaunted regular season penalty kill (4th in the league at 84.7%) has now plummeted to a playoff-worst 61.9%. Given how many penalties the Ducks take, this needs to get better or the Ducks will be looking at a 2-0 series deficit.

This is something that is fixable. Obviously, taking less penalties in the first place is the best course of action. But for a team like Ducks, just getting back to a solid penalty kill structure would help them win games, as they are not getting outplayed at 5 on 5 by very much, if at all.
