Numbers for Nerds

Anaheim started their 2016 first round series against the Nashville Predators losing Games 1 & 2 at home. Both games were lost by a score of 3-2. Anaheim then proceeded to win the next three games in a row by a collective score of 12-3. While Anaheim has certainly made their quest for the Cup this season much more difficult with their first two losses in this series, they have shown before that they are resilient enough to come back in this series. We will see tonight just what they can do.
